    Maybe it's just me but from the top view, that car looks to be really tight...

    Correct. it's a tighter package-->from the air intake above the driver to the "coke-bottle" effect on the body due to the Mercedes PU. It's subtle.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    Not really when compared with the Ferrari. It has a lot of bulk up along the air intake. Look how small the tail fin is compared to Ferrari . Also coke bottle area not very impressive.

    Yeas Ferrari had a slimmer engine cover last year, but that’s because our rads were all jammed and compacted in the side pods hence for the small skinny air box.... but this year from the sneak peak of the air box it looks like ferrari may move some intercolers up top.... so we may see a NOT so big tail fin this year....I hope not, but we’ll see
    So the SF1000 proved to be a DUD....let's hope the SF21 will be much better then its predecessor.

    I believe, this is just my opinion, it has to do with his carbon footprint. Lewis Hamilton sold his Bombadier private jet along with his supercars as well.

    Times are changing. Yeah, love all his Ferrari collection. The SL65 Black Series is no slouch--->1000 Newton meters of torque!!!

    Cars these days look like trains, compared to smaller and lighter cars from a few years ago we now have 150-200 kg more fat onboard...

    I want smaller, lighter cars again.

    Again, it's the optics. 2 F1 drivers at the top of the F1 salary food chain selling their "carbon emitting" vehicles and jet.

    Me personally, I would never sell those vehicles.

    Seb is cleaning out the closet its a form of purging ones self, similar to a relationship breakdown.New direction fresh start.Regardless he won't be selling them cheaply big dollars here regardless of the relationship breakdown.

    Me neither. Could care less about optics. Cars aren't carbon emitters when they aren't running and if they're in my garage, no one sees them. A plane i can understand, can't just have one hanging around and not being used.

    That's what bothers me as well. If being carbon neutral is what he would've wanted, he would've scrapped those cars or at least, gotten rid of the engine and given to some museum or something.

    True but that someone else is'nt in the spotlight.

    Understood. Here in the states, one of our recent political figures who is a Presidential Envoy for Climate got attacked for flying around in his own private jet. (He married rich)

    F1 is trying to be "green" among all the other things it's trying to do (racial equality, social justice, blah blah ala Lewis Hamilton). If you're in the top tier teams making all these millions and buying these carbon emitting vehicles for liesure and travel, the press and youtube will have a field day with you if they have'nt already.

    Questions like "So Seb, your driving around in an F1 car that is a hybrid of electricity and ICE yet it emits less of a carbon footprint than say your Enzo or F50. Would you care to explain why you own these cars?"

    No one is gonna ask these F1 drivers about their money and where there residence is and why they don't pay taxes in said country because their residence is in a tax haven country where they pay less taxes.

    When your in the spotlight you're judged by the media and we all know the media and SMN (social media networks) can be cruel.

    If your the average rich, wealthy customer whom remains to be out of the spotlight......have at it to your hearts content I say.

    Ferrari spends three days in Jerez with 18-inch Pirellis

    The Cavallino team will open the 30-day test that the FIA ​​has granted to the Milanese manufacturer to develop the lowered tires that will be used next year on the ground-effect single-seaters. On Monday, 18 slick tires will be tested on the "mule car" and the wet ones over the next two days. At the wheel of the SF90, Leclerc and Sainz will take turns, half a day each.

    The long 18-inch tire development program planned by Pirelli during 2021 (30 days in total) will kick off next Monday at the Jerez circuit.

    Ferrari will take to the track, using the SF90 set up according to the specifications required for fitting the new size tires that will be introduced in Formula 1 starting in 2022.

    The program normally involves the use of both slick and wet tires, but the Jerez circuit is not equipped with a system that provides for the possibility of wetting the asphalt, so it will be necessary to use the tankers regularly to keep the level of the road constant. 'water.

    There are three working days scheduled: Monday with slicks, Tuesday and Wednesday with rain.

    Last year, again in Jerez, Ferrari called up Charles Leclerc, while in Spain the two drivers, the Monegasque and Carlos Sainz, will alternate for half a day each.

    The final calendar of Pirelli tests will be announced in the coming days, and will include several scheduled post-Grand Prix sessions on the tracks where the World Championship will stop. After the start of the season, the teams will be authorized to field the 2021 single-seaters for these tests (suitably modified in the suspensions) instead of the 'mule-cars' that can be used until the eve of the Bahrain GP.

    It is still unclear how many teams will take advantage of this possibility, apart from McLaren which has no alternative due to the switch to the Mercedes engine which makes its 2019/20 cars equipped with the Renault power unit unusable
    FERRARI FOR EVER !!!!!!!

    Well in all seriousness. Red fools were pretty quick last year....the only team that gave a Merc a run for their money....so it’s not like they needed to make any drastic changes.....I’m more worried about our team
    So the SF1000 proved to be a DUD....let's hope the SF21 will be much better then its predecessor.
