Bellies and narrow wings inspired by McLaren

The new Ferrari (which should be called F12 or F2012) will have two front flippers revolutionary, hidden in protective structures and largely inspired by the McLaren MP4-26 last year. Bellies but also narrow, narrower than the current regulation (140 cm) and many other features that should make this time really “extreme” as Domenicali wanted since last autumn.

The next Ferrari will be a real clean break with the past. Some people called it “bad” after seeing the shapes of the project, probably because of the hump on the nose but in the final version should have been very blunt and not annoy the line. But what really stand out are the new wings on the sides of the passenger: Ferrari has found a way to exploit the rules of safety and crash certain protections to ensure that the crash structures become “the soul” that supports two new appendices andirons.

But this is not all unheard of in the new Red, which will be presented on February 3. Also found in the original front suspension, tighter stomachs, a lower belt line and a curious circular air vent at the end of the bonnet, under the wing, like that sported by Red Bull in 2011. And even higher discharges, according to the regulations, a provision will nno so obvious.
