Drag racing: Ferrari SF90 coupe vs Ferrari SF90 roadster

March 24, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

Racer Carlos Sainz, who joined the Italian team Scuderia after several very successful years at McLaren, decided to race with his teammate Charles Leclerc. They both drove a Ferrari SF90.

The third season of Formula 1 2021 begins this weekend. Following the severance of relations between Sebastian Vettel and the Italian Ferrari team last year, Carlos Sainz joined Scuderia after several very successful years with McLaren. Before the real race in Formula 1 cars, Sainz and his teammate Charles Leclerc had the opportunity to take two Ferrari SF90s and check which one is more powerful. The race was arranged on the Italian track Imola.

The hybrid SF90 Stradale Assetto Fiorano and the SF90 in the Spyder version (roadster body type) took part in the competition.

Both cars are powered by a 986-horsepower hybrid powertrain, which consists of three electric motors – two in the front and one in the rear – as well as a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine.

It is often said that the Italian automaker produces its best road cars at a time when its Formula 1 success is not as great as it would have been. While there is nothing wrong with that, especially given Team Scuderia’s results in 2020, the new roster is aimed at bringing the team back to the top of the grid.

It’s worth noting that many of the design elements in the SF90 Hybrid look amazing while still providing downforce to keep the car on the tarmac. Chief designer Fabio Manzoni described his design philosophy as combining engineering and innovation with mesmerizing beauty.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Ferrari showed a car for the Formula 1 season 2021. Two days before the start of the pre-season Formula 1 tests in Bahrain, the Ferrari team organized the presentation of their own car for the 2021 season under the name SF21.
