Scuderia Ferrari SF71H

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.

Why does the car look even nicer with that bodywork? Or is just all the red?

That would be the normal procedure, yes.

I don't know if it was already spoken here... but why does all Ferrari powered cars make a lot of smoke?

The fit and finish of Ferraris look so perfect these days.. Quite the contrary from a few years ago.

From this angle we can actually see the exit around the crash structure is an actual duct, being fed from somewhere.
Yesterday Scarbs tweeted its only a cowl, nothing special... After all he is just a journo that likes to position himself as some type of tech expert.We can never take their word as fact.
