The first pictures of the 2017 Formula 1 Sauber C36-Ferrari model also offer the chance to see how new regulations have affected the car’s appearance with wider rear wheels, a lower rear wing and slimmer bodywork being immediately apparent.
The most conspicuous changes that define the Sauber C36-Ferrari due to the new regulations are:
The cars are becoming wider again, from 1.80 to 2 metres.
The tyres are 25 % wider.
The front and rear wings are becoming wider as well.
The diffuser is being enlarged.
In total, this means more downforce, more grip and, as a result, faster lap times.
