Scuderia Ferrari SF16-H

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

Lots of nice close ups in high res for the eagle eyed among us to pick apart.

nice move from Ferrari to show the fans of lot of interesting angles!
Finishing races is important, but racing is more important.

Yup. I'm genuinely impressed by this car! Looks like a huge step forward.
Amazing coke bottle. Amazing general sidepod layout. Redbullish very short nose with maximum possible free space underneath. If they didn't f*ck up somewhere unnecessarily this looks like a genuine contender for Merc. Lightyears away from the rather bulky and conservative SF-15.
And moreover looking really good. I know, I know that's not a relevant criterion for a race car but still....

I agree, SF16-H looks big step forward but what about PU? Much tighter rear should affect cooling, negative.

That wishbone. Serious compromise in mechanical design. Must be for some aero reason but anyone know exactly why?

I wouldn't exactly say it's a mechanical compromise, but it looks interesting...

does this look like apossible 2nd attachment point for the suspension, maybe comparing geometries
Image

looks like f-duct will come like scarbs said
Image

looking nice and compact here
Image

while more bulky here, its all about which lense, zoom and angle they used

Close.

SF-16 has pylon extensions that acts like venturi, just like all other teams.
And that black piece (highlighted with yellow arrow on your drawing) is nose tip end.
Nose tip bulge is obviously shaped like an airfoil.
Blunt leading edge, and sharp trailing edge - single fin.

Is that real permament exhaust?? Wow, didn't expect it to be this much visually extended and in this position.
Looks mean though. =D>

Well, it is. Especially under braking, the junction of the wishbone will be loaded in shear / in-plane bending which is inherently less stiff than a conventionally shaped wishbone. So either you end up with a less stiff design or you make it stiffer again by adding weight, which is what they seem to have done here.
