Ferrari F150o – Floor improvements part of the latest upgrade package just before season starts


 

The wider nose pillars , part of the latest upgrade package , increased the quantity and quality of air passing under the nose and through the inner bargeboard-body zone towards the sidepod bottoms . To prevent any bleeding of this stronger airflow out of the floor’s upper surface and mixing  with air coming under the chassis, Ferrari added a small trapezoid fence on floor side (in yellow, bottom picture)  . Any mixing between  the two flow layers would create unwanted turbulence and ruin significantly diffuser efficiency .

As regards the sidepod panels , the vortex creator fin ( in yellow ,top picture ) is now gone .

It worths remembering that Ferrari also moved to floor revisions last year on the F10 before season started and that was the time that team added the fin on sidepod panels  to generate vortexes towards the rear wheels to cut drag .
