If we compare it to the one introduced in Singapore last season, the muzzle has been refined, with a "snow plow" under the nose which is much more pronounced due to the new design at the end. In addition, the outer edges have been reprofiled to maximize their role which is to generate support at the front of the car.

For comparison, here is the solution introduced by Ferrari last year in Singapore.

The deflection vanes were also advanced much further, with four elements instead of three housed under the nose. The rear part, mounted under the chassis, also has an extension of its base in order to improve the relationship with the other elements.

Ferrari has once again maximized the height of the deflectors. At first glance, the three sections at the front of the assembly appear higher than what the regulations would allow.

The deflectors themselves are relatively conventional, with multiple surfaces and slots that ensure proper operation at different angles, at different speeds and under different conditions. The boomerangs have been further optimized, with a thinner element deployed above the front of the assembly, while a larger one is located at the rear. These two elements are deformed at their ends to form the first part of the set of deflectors, which also take the form of a group of fins in front of the flat bottom.

We can review here the design of the deflectors from last year, allowing a good comparison with the new configuration.

Behind the deflectors, we find the three panels that agree with the network of deflectors, the two more advanced taking the "L" shape used by the stable while the upper panel has been simplified and detached from the upper slat of the pontoon.

Ferrari in fact follows a trend initiated by Red Bull in recent seasons, which creates a vortex opposite to that usually found on the surface. This led the team to make modifications to the geometry of the pontoons and to further reduce the air intake under the bodywork.

… However, the SF1000 has a complex arrangement in the amounts of the mirrors, which are again in two parts.

Seen in profile, this year's car shows just how much longer it has gotten. The team chose this route to repackage the power unit and the gearbox in order to reduce the width of the bodywork.

As proof, the visible area of ​​the flat bottom is much larger at the rear, which was made possible by a very significant refinement of the pontoons.
