Autosprint claims, is the nose, with the rounded shape of 2015 giving way to a more Toro Rosso-style setup for the new season.

The Italian expecting new nose solution will allow a greater flow of air in the area of the base and the ability to generate more downforce at the front.

Autosprint reports that Ferrari’s engineers could also adopt S-Duct on the car, during the 2016 season, a solution already seen last 2015 season.

MGU-K removed from the back to the lower-left side of the engine block.

The intercooler should be removed from the “V”, and it will be positioned, presumably, in the chassis.

New crankcase for Ferrari 667 more tighter than last year. These changes should allow engineers to work with more freedom to improve downforce at the rear. The Ferrari 667 will show major changes in gearbox and the engine cover.
