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 do not belong here.

Ehm... #-o
There isn't absolutely nothing new on rear suspension but little aero tweak and sensors. Just look at the photos, no geometry change, the suspension arm is "connected" at the same height in the same place, maybe a different setup. And is totally useless for SF test a "new rear suspension" on a car with totally different mass distribution... or the 2015 car will be absolutely the same. Also Piola noticed that it's just a bit different in "shape".
The suspension is different. It may not be new - granted it could be a piece from a previous race this year, but Kimi's car definitely had a different upper control arm. I disagree with Garry though.. I think the arm is actually longer and set at the same height, not as low as he makes it out to be. I think it is to reduce camber change, not increase it as he says.
Again, there is nothing new on rear suspension

absolutely nothing but in prevous races sensors and maybe bit of aero. :wink:

That photo cannot be taken as proof. They could have changed it again for track specific reasons. That is probably not even Kimi's gearbox.

This bulge hiding a sensor in your opinion?

No, in this photo there is a new shaped arm, so just aero bits, not a new suspension, the sensors probably were in the prototyped one they tested in Austin.
A "new suspension" it'not a different shape of an arm of it. And more i cannot see any gemotry change, but setup.

Wow he had to put the steering wheel into the opposite lock of the direction the corner was going. Very undriveable indeed.

Yep, was just thinking it was the worst Ferrari I can remember - much worse than 2009 and 2005 and worse than any of the 90s cars.

F14t was really close to 312t5. What a mess.

2005 was not a bad car, it were the Bridgestones that sucked massive compared to Michelin.

I hope Ferrari aren't slipping into the sort of quagmire that characterized 91-92. Constant personnel firings, terrible driver relations... They need to start calmly working back up.
