Scuderia Ferrari SF16-H

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.

Scuderia Ferrari SF16-H

Post by turbof1 » Thu Feb 18, 2016 3:29 pm

This the official car topic about the 2016 Ferrari contender, the SF16-H. This thread will handle more stringent rules:

-Absolutely no livery talk in the car topic. Liveries are by nature topics assigned to the team thread, and should be discussed there. Posts about liveries in the car thread will be removed.

-Discussion about the car's hardware only. No discussion about the laptimes (should be discussed in the testing or race threads). No speculation or rumors towards future features of the car; no speculation about the competitive performance (car beats car B but car C, etc.). Such discussions will be removed as well.

-Discussion about the Power Unit should belong in its respective PU topic. How the car's chassis and bodywork is adapted to it remains in the car thread, but pure features of the PU don't go there. Since this is quite a grey area, we will not remove transgressions on that front, but will move them when appropiate.

That might sound strict and is infact so, but this is done to safeguard the topic quality. We will be very thorough about that this year! If you don't find anything worthwhile to post, please resist the urge and do not post. There is nothing wrong with that and is infact the better option when there's nothing new.

The Nose is quite long for a short Nose. I don't think that's the last Version we'll see.

It is an old feature, but reshaped to the bat wing.

My thoughts exactly. They've mounted the gearbox/diff/final drive higher up to get more air over the top of the diffuser.

I am going to venture out and say I believe the wheelbase is longer. The sidepod undercut at the rear suspension is mighty impressive too.
