Ferrari have set tongues wagging throughout the F1 paddock in pre-season testing. Not only does their new car look to be the most complete and innovative package produced by the Scuderia in quite some time, it is also proving to be very reliable and very quick. So what makes the SF70H special?

Image

From the front of the car (above), we can see how much higher the sidepod openings are compared to those on last year’s SF16-H, allowing airflow to enter with minimal disruption from the front suspension elements - a problem which other teams, notably Mercedes and Toro Rosso, have dealt with via the very different approach of raising their suspension. Also clear from the picture is just how aggressive Ferrari have been with the undercut of the sidepod.

In fact the whole philosophy of Ferrari’s sidepod design has been the subject of much discussion. The 2017 regulations require the leading edge of the sidepod to be angled at 75 degrees to the car’s centreline, in order to provide a more pleasing, arrow-like aesthetic - complementing the similarly backswept front wing. Designers, however, would prefer a 90-degree angle for optimum efficiency.

Image

Onlookers have questioned whether Ferrari have found a loophole here. As can be seen in the image above, they have moved the leading edge of the sidepod back, retaining a 90-degree angle, but ahead of it is a complex bodywork assembly. That hoop-like assembly is attached to, and thus still part of, the sidepod, and has the required 75-degree angle. It not only features a number of complex elements designed to optimise airflow to the sidepod inlet, it also means the main body of the sidepod can be smaller.

Image

Arguably the most interesting - and clever - solution on the SF70H, however, is the cooling system for the gearbox and its hydraulics. It appears this is no longer within the bodywork as normal, but channelled through the floor of the car. The pipes remain within the bound 140cm area required by the regulations for safety reasons, but since they are no longer wrapped around the engine they should stay a lot cooler, hence making the system more efficient. The inset on the picture above shows a number of thermal stickers which were spotted along the channel during testing, presumably being used by the team to monitor temperatures.

Ferrari seem to have the makings of a highly competitive package - but the real answers will come in Melbourne.

MELBOURNE, Australia -- Ferrari CEO Sergio Marchionne said it was "about time" the famous Italian team put an end to its victory drought by winning Sunday's Australian Grand Prix in Formula One.

After a winter of cautious optimism in Maranello, Ferrari and Sebastian Vettel kicked off the first race of F1's new aerodynamic era with a convincing victory. Race strategy was key to securing the win on the day, but Marchionne praised the progress the team has made following a winless campaign last year.

"It was about time," he said. "I am delighted for the team and for our tifosi who stood by us throughout this whole period. We've been waiting for this victory for almost a year and a half. Hearing the Italian national anthem again was very moving.

"Sebastian delivered a great race and I am sure Kimi will be soon up there battling alongside his team-mate. Of course, this victory is something to share with the entire team, both at the circuit and back in Maranello, because teamwork is the only way to achieve major goals."

Marchionne said the team's first win since the 2015 Singapore Grand Prix is just the starting point for further progress over the coming season.

"Now, however, it is absolutely essential to remember that this is not the destination but the first step on a long road that must see us all focused on improving each and every day."

Figured we could continue the discussion here...
We might even have more to come on Team Orders this season...

So... From the "experts", here's a good read:

... Conclusion

Our conclusion is that this is one of the most fascinating scenarios we have encountered in the UBS Race Strategy Report since it began in 2011 and you can convince yourself either way depending on your own theories or biases.

There are a couple of things that don’t add up in Ferrari’s behaviour, which hint that Ferrari favoured Vettel, such as pitting him into traffic and also that quick middle sector for Raikkonen just before he stopped that hinted that the tyres still had some life in them.

But our conclusion – having spoken to insiders, the drivers concerned and strategists involved in the race with deep knowledge of the tyres and what they were doing – is that Ferrari got the outcome it wanted, but on this occasion favouring Vettel wasn’t what they set out to do when they triggered Raikkonen’s stop on Lap 34...
