Ferrari have paid special attention to aerodynamics for its new Formula One car in an attempt to keep up with rival Mercedes on high-speed circuits.
Presenting the SF71H model on Thursday, Ferrari technical director Mattia Binotto said the main differences from last year’s car were a slightly longer wheelbase, more aggressive side ducts, and “a very narrow body”.
“It looks nice and usually when it looks nice there’s speed also,” Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen said.
The first chance to measure up against Mercedes’ new car will come in preseason testing next week in Montmelo, Spain.
“We can’t wait to get out on to the track to see how the car performs, how it behaves,” Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel said.
