Big on brakes
Singapore places heavy demands on a Formula 1 car’s stopping power, thanks to several major braking events with little track time in between to aid cooling. No surprise, then, that the discs used here have the maximum number of venting holes – around 1,400 in the case of Ferrari’s Brembo set-up. Those holes are arranged in diagonal lines of six, contrasting with the horizontal lines of five seen in Monza (inset). Note also the unusual pick-up point for the suspension’s push rod link (red arrow), which can be easily changed to allow for different suspension geometries.
On the board
These unusual longitudinal barge boards have been on the SF70H since launch and subsequently copied by Red Bull. Ferrari upgraded theirs for Budapest and those changes feature again for the not dissimilar Singapore circuit. Working in conjunction with the small amount of blowing from the flat section of the tea tray under the chassis, they better manage the airflow around the side pods and feed the rear diffuser area.
