Ferrari reveals upgraded racer for Belgian Grand Prix

25 August 2017

Ferrari has revealed significant updates to its SF70H ahead of this weekend’s Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps.

In the first half of the season, the team struggled to match the pace of the Mercedes AMGs, particularly on the higher speed circuits. To remedy the situation, Ferrari has made some significant changes, including a new front suspension set up featuring a 3rd damper and a larger, more threaded spring. The set up was tested after the Hungarian round of the Formula 1 Championship, with the team making changes in a bid to help better manage its ride-height and rake angle. The team will expect this to lower drag for Spa’s long straights without negatively affecting the car’s cornering performance.

Ferrari has also made some aerodynamic changes to SF70H. The front wing and endplate have been reprofiled, while at the rear there are only six holes ahead of the rear wheels instead of the seven that were present in Hungary. In addition, Ferrari has added an extra bodywork ‘handle’ element, similar to that which Mercedes has been running since the Spanish Grand Prix.
