Ferrari SF15-T - blown front axle

28 Mar 2015

Trialed last year on the Ferrari, in the end the team’s blown front axle wasn’t used in a race. This year the solution is an integral part of the front aero layout on the SF15-T...

In fact in 2015 there are three teams with the potential to use this device, which aids brake cooling and reduces drag: Red Bull (who were the first to introduce it), Ferrari and McLaren. The latter’s MP4-30 also has wider central hubs at the back, allowing the team to use the same wheel gun assembly front and rear.
