Haas VF-17 Ferrari

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.

What is the purpose of these new flow conditioners in the barge board area, could you elaborate this to us?

Monkey seat detail:

Unsurprisingly, quite similar to Ferrari.
They also have two slightly different front wings for Mexico:

dont think so, it is about separating two different turbulent flux sources
vortexes from front wheels must be kept separated from sidepods so the board is present
but at same time also vortexes coming from the barge boards must be expelled due to its vorticity ( front wing y-vortex ) so side openings are present
