Scuderia Ferrari SF90

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.

Presumably an attempt to add front end downforce. Looks like a mini car underfloor below the nose.

I thought you have to create a twist in the channel so the you cannot see through, am I wrong?

It’s basically a mini cape behind the new nose - interesting that they still chose not to extend the cape further ala Mercedes et al; you’d think there’d be some dirty downforce available in doing that.

I think the Ferrari nose already meets the two cross section regulation thus this is only an add-on below the nose structure. The RP & Alfa noses employ a trick in the regulations to include those slots in the structure but they still have to comply with the cross-section rules & enclosed surface rule (?), thus they cannot be "see through" like here.

My reasoning at least...

But drag too, a lot of it.

It's not exactly new, now i believe it's been introduced in Hungary together with the new barge boards, but definitely flown under the radar in this topic is the new(ish) support for the X-vane (black element connecting the X-vane to the crash structure).

Which I wouldn’t expect them to be concerned about in somewhere like Singapore.

It's point isn't to create downforce per se, but rather create a vortex. For example Mercedes has the cape much longer than everyone else, but they also don't run the vertical elements under the nose.
