Ferrari F2007 - zero keel concept 29 January 2007

One of the most noticeable changes to the new Ferrari has taken place to the mounting of its front suspension. Rather than the traditional single keel, which appeared on 2006's 248 F1, the F2007 sports a 'zero keel' arrangement - a first for Ferrari. Gone is last year's bulb-shaped keel. Instead the car's lower wishbones are attached directly to the lowest corners of the chassis (1). This modification should dramatically improve the efficiency of the bottom of the car by improving the quantity and quality of the airflow passing underneath.
