Ferrari SF15-T - Monaco steering modifications

24 May 2015

F1 cars are not made to race in city streets and their normal steering angle doesn’t allow them to make the tight hairpin bends.

For the Monaco race teams therefore modify the steering angle from the norm of around 14 degrees to somewhere nearer 20. In order to do this both the upper and lower suspension wishbones must be cut to avoid contact with the wheel rim, as you can see in this Ferrari drawing.
