There are now about ten days earlier in the week dedicated to the Formula 1 cars presentations that will participate in the World Championship 2017. A season that to what we have to understand is quite expected by many fans since the regulatory change that will make the more appealing cars and aggressive can lead according to many insiders more performance on the track works. We FUnoAnalisiTecnica we are not so convinced and again we have already expressed our doubts about the 2017 regulatory changes that could even re-expand the performance between Mercedes and other Top Team.
The month of February is perhaps the month along with the one in January in all the factories where there is the greatest pressure on the employees of the year (not only engineers) because on one hand you have to finish the work on the cars in preparation for the early season tests, on the other begin to arrive the first rumors about the output data from other simulators Team .
Days frantic especially in that of Maranello because, as understood from FUnoAnalisiTecnica , the engineers of the Italian team do not seem very happy with the output data from the wind tunnel and simulator as we wrote among other things also in the final part of this article . Formula 1 is a pretty top secret world, but our readers should know that the various Team, a little 'how to have fun FUnoAnalisiTecnica us (in a less demanding course), they try to figure out how strong should be the cars of the main competitors. Thanks to the latest information coming from Maranello on tables in recent weeks, in Ferrari they realized that the car originally conceived will not be particularly competitive with the new, high-performance Mercedes W08 and therefore it was decided to try to make any substantial changes to the project 2017 during construction; the first project only started by James Allison was finished in a hurry by Rory Byrne for not arrive unprepared in the eight-day pre-season test.
Many of the interventions that the technicians are currently designing Ferrari will be substantial enough to make us think that we could even during the season (the first European races?) A Ferrari in B version with many changes compared to that which will be presented on 24th of this month and who will play is the test that the first races of the season. How understood and to be the most accurate we have to tell you, about the advances on the Ferrari 2017 we gave you not too long ago that the ' step increase of between 10 and 15 cm with respect to 2016 was linked to the car information B a few weeks ago in this part it is in the wind tunnel . Ferrari have decided to further extend the pace over the first project designed in Maranello who counted on a step of the car very similar in 2017 to that of 2016. As well as the car Ferrari also Mercedes, Red Bull and McLaren will go to increase the footsteps of their cars in 2016 , confirming the FUnoAnalisiTecnica anticipation of a few weeks ago where we had indicated the importance of a lengthening of pace compared to last season.
In addition to ' interest changed thanks mainly to a revision of the rear axle , in Maranello are conducting further work to increase the downforce of the car whose 2017 basic version is very lacking.
To try to compensate for lack of cargo, banks are trying to squeeze as much as possible the new Power Unit Italian pulling out the maximum number of horses. Power that could become critical to Ferrari in the first part of the World in 2017, this is to limit the damage on the main competitors.
In conclusion, the latest information collected on the Italian team are not at all positive and indeed the situation that is taking shape is worse than expected . It would be understood FUnoAnalisiTecnica must therefore expect a rather red in difficulty in the early part of the season with a detachment from Mercedes W08 higher than that with which the car had finished the 2016 season; hoping that the changes brought forward by the engineers of the Italian Team give the expected results in the current season.
