    Exactly.
    Also, it's a really good thing that Ferrari actually shows that they have more than one main interest; other than F1.

    It's only a good thing.

    More changes in Ferrari F1 chassis department.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    He's a great as an engineer, no doubt.
    But, in a management role?
    I expect a short life-span or he'd do a great job.
    Either way, only time will tell.

    The main point of bringing Haas into Maranello and pushing staff over to them plus this LeMans effort is to retain existing staff. Would be hard on existing staff to say we have to move you to the USA or fire you. The current announcements with Haas and LeMans means staff are retained and do not have to move thousands of miles to keep their jobs.

    A view of Mercedes split turbo design wth the MGU-H next to the compressor while the exhaust portion is on the other end. These 2 components sit between the V banks of the 6 cylinder ICE.

    Any chance the SF21 will get a narrower nose like most other teams or have all of our tokens been used on the rear end and engine?

    Yes, there is a chance. We still don't know where Ferrari have used most of the tokens. We are also allowed more wind tunnel days than Mercedes.

    I just hope that Ferrari will be quiet about their token allocation. No point at divulging all the details about token expenditure during the car launch event.

    Ferrari already said 2 tokens at the rear. Back must be where their most deficient on the chassis so unlikely to do the thin nose. Ferrari have more wind tunnel time but should use none of it on this years car should all go for 2022 car. Same with everyone else, no one should really bring updates. Competitive order after 1st few races likely to be it for the year.

    They left Ferrari in the beginning of the season and Ferrari removed the decal on the car and put red tape of their sponsor name on their shirts/polo's/jackets BUT Weichai Power are back with Ferrari in 2021.

    I doubt Ferrari went with a slender nose for 2021. (please prove me wrong)

    [bolded area] These cars being launched are just that.....launch cars. They will look different from an aero perspective come the 2 weeks of practice before Melbourne(????).

    For the others quite possible (A/T already run a new slim nose on their test run) ,but for as it will be the first!!!!!
    We almost never chamge anything from the launch spec. Most of the times not even the front wing!!!!!
    Hope this will change and probably will because as Binotto said ,the car will not gonna change from the 1st race till the end.Its like almost all the "upgrades/ideas " we have for this year's car will have it from day 1 and that's it!!!! From then on it'd all about 2022!!!
    FERRARI FOR EVER !!!!!!!

    I thought Harry Potter said in an interview last year that they will spend the tokens in the rear as there will be more time to be found rather than the new slim nose up front
    So the SF1000 proved to be a DUD....let's hope the SF21 will be much better then its predecessor.

    Ya. I think most of the issues came from having an unstable rear end so that's where they're concentrating... didn't have so many issues with the beak so that stays. If they can plant the rear and increase straight line speed, then we are good to go. I think we were still pretty good in the twisty bits, so hopefully they were able to keep that.

    Along with more HP. less Down force and hopefully fast pits, Ferrari's biggest upgrade is.... Sainz ! All this.... POINTS to podiums. Along with "Ferrari Trento! "
