Ferrari F14T

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter do not belong here.

Back end looks fantastic, that nose is pretty ugly though, the bulkhead looks way too high as well, I need to see it along side the Macca & Lotus.

Pull rod front retained. I'm not overly surprised or upset.

Sidepods air intakes are VERY tiny compared to what we've seen so far, and the sidepods themselves also look very slim.
