Ferrari's new car will be presented in just under a month, but one detail has already been noticed about the new car. Indeed, a new air intake can be seen on the SF21, which is significantly different from last year's.
New air intake on the SF21
Motorsport-Total reports that the SF1000 of the 2020 Formula 1 season had a triangular air intake. This shape remains in the base, but looks wider. In addition, there seem to be more air intakes on the side, something Ferrari also used in 2017.
Of course, we don't know the exact reason for this modification, but aside from a greater need for cooling, it could indicate a change in construction. For example, such a modification would allow something to be stored elsewhere, such as in the side pods. These could then be made more compact.
The new Ferrari car will be presented on March 10. The team's launch will take place on February 26.
