Chassis director Enrico Cardile drew attention to which parts of the chassis and aerodynamics have been improved.
“We chose the posterior, creating a new transmission and suspension,” he said. “This, along with the work done by our power unit engineers, gives a much more tapered rear end compared to the SF1000.
“We also went over the cooling system. We increased the authority of the central radiator and designed a more downwashing bodywork. ”
Cardile pointed out further aerodynamic improvements: “We developed a new front wing which works coupled with a newly conceived nose, but the chassis and suspension are the same as the SF1000.
The team have also changed the rear section of the SF21’s livery to a burgundy colour instead of scarlet in tribute to the first racing car that Ferrari produced in 1947, the 125S.
Ferrari ran the same colour last year at Mugello to celebrate its 1000th F1 grand prix.
“Visually we’ve drawn on our history, but we’re also looking towards to the future, which will always be defined by Ferrari red.” Binotto said.
