Ferrari F14T

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.

Thanks, never saw it before....I thought they can simply simulate deflection using some weight. I would also expect such kind of test sooner than in the last test day. :shock:

I hope it's an old photo, because the old wing it's mounted on the car. :shock:

Got that photo from @insideferrari (posted today), whether or not its today or two days ago is beyond me.
If someone said to me that you can have three wishes, my first would have been to get into racing, my second to be in Formula 1, my third to drive for Ferrari.

I haven´t seen this mentioned in the thread yet, when they run the larger "cannon" opening around the exhaust, the sidepod is quite different as well, much more undercut:

Compare to the "old" version, with the familiar overcut:

Is Ferrari trying some sort of low-downforce package, or can we just simply say this car is very fast on the straight (340 km/h in Bahrain wtf) ?
(or is this photo fake :P ?? )

edit: It is hard to figure it out, whether it is bottas who hits the 340 km/h or, Alonso, I am not sure ;)

It's Alonso, he's the one with 27 laps.

that's what I guessed when I first looked, then I doubted myself... anyways, I guess there is less wing angle onboard...

Rear wing's endplate is different not only in the trailing edge, but also in the slots and something more

What problems did they hit today? Comparatively small number of laps for Alonso so far.
