Scuderia Ferrari SF70H

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 SF70H

Post by turbof1 » Thu Feb 16, 2017 11:14 am

This the official car topic about the 2017 Ferrari contender. 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. Livery, sponsoring and any other none-performance hardware features of the car go to the team thread.

-Discussion about the car's hardware only. No discussion about the laptimes (should be discussed in the testing or race threads; test thread is here: http://www.f1technical.net/forum/viewto ... =1&t=25963). 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. A fair warning that we will be extremely strict 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.

Topic will be opened once the car has been officially launched, which is February the 24th.

Small winglets just above the front suspension?

Reminding me of the "knives" in the F2007/08.

Sidepod intakes are interesting. Wonder what's the reason of this design is?
To force a bigger amount of airflow under and around the sidepod intakes to the back of the car?

That is a lot of rake on the car, I like the sidepods they remind me of the mp4-27. Also they have that winglit on the back similar to Mercedes but the pictures are not yet clear enough to go into details.

Looks to have a shorter wheel base than the Merc but difficult to tell from the images. It's the first radically different car we've seen. I like the sidepods. Interesting detail.
