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.

You can see here where this cowling starts. Pretty much just like Scarbs wrote.

You can see the 'cowl' join the floor and coke bottle just above the lower wishbone in the image above.

I think it looks like the image below.

But then I'm just an engineer who became a journalist, who spent all last week actually looking at the cars and talking to the engineers. :lol:

Scarbs, what about mirrors? There has been some debate here about them. :)

I think so. Normally they would be in the mirrors but with the feature on Ferrari's mirrors they have had to relocate the sensor.

There is a slot on the bottom of the nose crash structure:

I dont't agree. It seems a reflection of the central part of the wing with it's carbon leading edge and some words/picture in white (maybe FIA logo).
I'm still learning English so please excuse me if my English is not good enough and feel free to correct me via PM if you want.

It seems like a hole to me, Looking at Zioture's penultimate picture above.
Any idea what the other (smaller) hole on the nose just under the tricolore is?
Neither of those holes where on the lanunch car.

The fit and finish of Ferraris look so perfect these days.. Quite the contrary from a few years ago.
Yes it looks very developed as well - last year was good but this year looks another level, especially compared to the last few years or so.

This hole is for driver cooling.
