Ferrari SF1000

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.

It always amazes me how small the inlet of the SF71H was.
But it has the biggest airbox.

The car seems to be a reasonable evolution of the previous car, maybe I was expecting a Little bit more but I am no undewhelmed as the basis looks good and this car Will differ a lot from what we Will see in the second test and first race.

Has the rear suspension the hole like last year Mercedes one?

Any way of finding good high resolution pictures (or renders) of the car ? I can’t seem to find anything higher than 1920/1080.. which is making it harder to find intricate details like I can on the Red Bull for example.

Also, did they lengthen the shark fin too ?

At first glance I wondered if the sf1000 was a little under baked, but having seen the cars from the other big players - it seems we’re right on trend with everything. Also interesting to see Mercedes move to Ferrari style sidepod inlets after so long, and their front wing has a bit more of an out wash concept too. Who knew that even though we aren’t winning a great deal, that these ideas clearly have merit! Let’s be reassured by that if nothing else.

Question for people smarter than me:

The sf1000 front suspension is much lower on the nose/tub, and angled a bit more downwards as it meets the wheel (instead of almost straight across like merc for example). Is that a positive or a negative, or neither? What does that change about the kinematics of the suspension?

There are some kinematic differences for sure. Probably Mercedes generates more camber while steering, has a higher roll center, is more reactive to the track surface and the suspension "lifts" the car more (maybe they mount the pushrod with an offset to balance this effect). But, these differences must be pretty small and can be balanced. Aerodynamics is the main reason for the different front suspensions, as both cars work the airflow differently. There's no superior concept, both have advantages and disadvantages and are suited for their respective cars.

That would have put it on pole last year, so I guess they're not expecting to win there?

Considering Hungary was before the Singapore upgrade one would expect a lot more than that...
Or are they considering if the Singapore car ran Hungary?

They could easily have had pole in Hungary last year with the Singapore upgrade.
