Haas VF-17 Ferrari

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.

The nose looks like a Ferrari SF-16 carbon copy.

Looks like an opening, indeed.

Quite a big wing they have in front of the sidepods. Only the Mercedes' design is bigger ATM, I guess.

And yet another penis nose. At this point, I'm not even mad, just disappointed.

OT: where are they testing at? The track surely looks dusty there!
EDIT: forget it, just saw the giants CATALUNYAs written all over the paddock!

It's not testing. They're having their filming day in Barcelona!

Barcelona, Circuit the Catalunya. Yes a big wing ahead of the sidepod directing air downwards. Opening above the sidepod has different shape as Ferrari's though

Reminds me the RS 17 !

Looks nice, even if i'm not a huge fan of this miltary kind of paint.

For the moment they're the only ones (with merc & ferrari) to use the space under the mirors (i can't remember the name of this part) to put some aero stuff (i call them sharklets :D !).

Did they have blown wheel hubs last year?

There are also additional turning vanes under the nose!

That is one bad Haas looking grey!
