Ferrari F14 T - stepped chassis shape 26 February 2014

Like several of the new cars, Ferrari's 2014 machine, the F14 T, has a pronounced step in the chassis in order to retain aerodynamic efficiency despite the reduction in maximum chassis height to 525mm. Whilst it was obvious from the top surface that the chassis was stepped, the dark paintwork and turning vanes below the car made it difficult to determine the exact shape of the bottom of the chassis. However, in Bahrain that shape became clear, as indicated in this drawing by the red arrow.
