Zurer: Ferrari has a conceptual problemMay 17, 2019
In Barcelona, Ferrari’s head Mattia Binotto left the answer to the question of whether there are any conceptual problems in the design of the SF90. Commentator of the German Sky, a former Formula 1 driver Mark Zurer believes that such problems exist.
Mark Zurer: “Ferrari has a conceptual problem. The machine does not provide the necessary downforce. In the winter tests this was not noticed for two reasons. Firstly, for machines that were in the early stages of developing downforce at that moment, it was enough. Secondly, in Mercedes they tested an incomplete version of their car. But in the winter it was clear that Ferrari is losing time in the last sector, where high downforce is needed.
Downforce just does not add. Of course, you can put a larger wing, but the car will immediately lose in speed on the straight – which is what happened with Ferrari in China. The clamping force should be generated in the lower part of the car, but apparently, this is the problem and associated – in slow corners Ferrari aerodynamics does not work. ”
