Ferrari SF15-T - underbody ‘Batman’ fin

31 Oct 2015

Ferrari continue to push ahead with aerodynamic development going into the season’s final few rounds, and in Mexico we can see a new front-end package on the SF15-T.

The Italian squad have kept the new three-piece turning vanes (right arrow) underneath the chassis, as introduced at the last round in Austin. These are paired with a horizontal splitter - its shape reminiscent of Batman’s famous logo - behind the turning vanes (left arrow), as used since last year by Mercedes. Together with a new front wing, these elements form Ferrari’s revised aero set-up for the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, where the combination of high speeds and thin air - Mexico City is over 2,200m above sea level - presents the teams with an unusual set-up challenge.
