Ferrari 248 F1 - rear suspension 14 May 2006

A slight geometry change in Spain, though the pick-up points remain the same, on the carbon fibre shell of the gearbox casing. The previous rotational dampers have been replaced with hydro-pneumatic items, which allow for faster set-up changes, with a wider and more precise range of settings. They also use longer torsion bars (red arrows), which are covered by two vertical fins in the rear bodywork (see previous engine cover drawing). These increase the stiffness of the overall suspension system and this is balanced with a softer damping-rebounding ratio.
