Ferrari F138

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.

Looks nice. Although I'm no fan of the red paint on the front and rear wing. They finally add some black again, but on the wrong places... :(

Are those strakes on the end of the endplate of the RW pointing outwards?

Interesting that they chose to show their new rear wing at the launch. I guess they figure a couple of days doesn't make a big difference.

Scarbs is saying it's a modesty panel, but I'm not so sure. Look at how much is missing underneath the nose.

it has to be a modesty panel, otherwise illegally high
