(Motorsport-Total.com) – Ferrari will continue in the Formula 1 season 2020 Set the old front wing concept, even if in the new season you plan with significantly more downforce . In contrast to Mercedes and Red Bull, the Scuderia had placed on a front wing last year, which generates less air resistance, but also less downforce, but the higher top speed of the SF 90 was at the expense of efficiency in the curves.
With the new SF 1000 Ferrari has already announced that it will overcome the deficits and put a lot more pressure on them. However, this does not include a new concept with the front wing. Because the Scuderia had the wing of the previous year on the car at the presentation and wants to continue working with it.
“This wing is not the final one, but it is the foundation for the beginning. We will drive with it also in the winter tests “, explains team boss Mattia Binotto. “We will not change our concept. It will stay that way – no matter how we use it, we will test it later. I think it is the right concept for americadas.”
“We have it Contact pressure is greatly increased. Not only by the wing, but also by other parts on the car. For example, the turning vanes. It's all very complex. But the car has become slimmer overall, the rear and the diffuser work better. The contact pressure is overall certainly got higher. “

According to Binotto, the stronger downforce also brings something more drag with it, but Ferrari accepts that. “We believe that we have a car that will certainly be faster in the corners – but maybe slower on the straight.” But Ferrari had strong advantages anyway.
It remains to be seen whether this is the right stability in the end: “We don't know, used to be doing the others,” says Binotto.
