Scuderia Ferrari SF71H

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.

Notice that it does not immediately obstruct the camera, there is a hole cut out in the housing. Other teams use similar devices.

Both examples would block line-of-sight between camera and steering wheel.

SF71H bodywork relatively simple compared to the rest of the field *except* for the edges of the floor, where they have surpassed McLaren, even.

Bit of trailing-edge region flow separation showing the rw flap is running at/very close to its limit in terms of usable AoA.

Looks like a near vertical vortex forms inside the endplate, sprouting from the first main louvre.

Vortexes form at the tip of a surface though. This highlighted area just indicates laminar upwash.

Any updates planned for Russia?

Mercedes made a big step in Singapore. Ferrari need to respond!

Any updates they present in Russia are a product of weeks (if not months) of research and manufacture. It is impossible to "respond" with updates.
