In this latest animation produced by Motorsport.tv, we can see the changes and how the Ferrari SF70H car has improved. The recent modifications include changes to the front wing endplate detail, designed to improve the airflow off the front tyres and changes to the slots in the floor ahead of the rear wheels.
Most importantly, there is a change to the diffuser aimed at increasing the performance of what is a powerful downforce-producing part of the car.
The changes were brought in starting with the 2017 United States Grand Prix in October, and contributed to Sebastian Vettel’s first victory since July in the Brazilian Grand Prix last weekend. Ferrari’s two drivers both ended up on the podium in Brazil for the second time in the last three races, and Sebastian Vettel winning the race gave the team their first win in almost three in a half months. The team has picked up some much-needed momentum to close out the 2017 season.
With the 19th race of the 20-race 2017 Formula One season in Mexico in the books, there is just one race remaining on this year’s schedule. The 20th and final race of the season takes place in Abu Dhabi at Yas Marina Circuit in two weeks.
