The all-new Ferrari SF-23 F1 car was revealed earlier this week in Maranello with Charles Leclerc putting on a show for fans on the company’s Fiorano Circuit. Most of the car looks similar to its predecessor, with the biggest change being in the front end and a completely redesigned suspension.
As for the front suspension, Ferrari moved from a configuration with a high trackrod to a design with a low trackrod for maximum aerodynamic efficiency. The front wing is also different as well as the construction of the nose, as the primary element is no longer attached, but rather floating. FIA also required 2023 F1 cars to be 15mm higher on the side edge to prevent porpoising on track.
- Authentically Designed - The Technic Ferrari 488 GTE race car model features authentic design details, capturing the Italian spirit of the trophy-winning racer
- Functional Features - Includes front and back suspension, opening doors, a V8 engine with moving pistons, and functioning steering wheel
- Explorable - Thanks to the opening doors and hood, all the details packed inside can be easily explored and look just like the iconic original
Our 2023 car is an evolution of the one we raced last year, but in reality, it has been completely redesigned. On the aerodynamic side, we increased vertical downforce, to adapt further to the new aero regulations and achieve the desired balance characteristics,” said Enrico Cardile, Ferrari Head of Chassis.
