Sebastian Vettel First Test of 2017 SF70H Comes To An End

Sebastian Vettel First Test of 2017 SF70H Comes To An End
 

  • 139 laps today: “Too early to draw any conclusions”

Three days of testing so far, with Sebastian Vettel at the wheel for two of them, therefore not enough for the driver to have a clear picture of the current situation. That will only happen in Melbourne. For now, Seb can take heart from some statistics: 139 laps completed today, to be added to the 129 from Monday, giving a total distance covered of 1247.54 kilometers in the cockpit of the SF70H at the Catalan track.

  • Second and final day of data correlation testing


There was a second day of testing at the Fiorano circuit today, with a program based on correlating simulator data with that gathered on track. Sharing the driving duties on the “standard” SF15-T were Scuderia Ferrari’s third driver, Antonio Giovinazzi, who was behind the wheel in the morning and Kimi Raikkonen, who took over for the afternoon. The weather was far from ideal, especially when Kimi was driving, with the Finn having to deal with rain as well as strong winds. Nevertheless, he still completed several runs.

The number refers to the seventy years of history, which is truly unique for any marquee in the sport. The letters in the name stand simply for Scuderia Ferrari and the Hybrid form of power. The Italian flag is clearly visible on the “sail” of the engine cover, with a look that recalls the 70s. After the launch, the Ferrari SF70H, built to compete in the Formula 1 World Championship, also took its first steps today at the historic Fiorano track, combining the shakedown with a filming day to acquire footage for commercial purposes.

The 63rd single-seater designed and built by Scuderia Ferrari to take part in the Formula 1 World Championship is born out of a regulation change that is without precedent in this category of motor sport. Generally, in the past, regulations went in the direction of slowing down the cars. However, this year, the rule changes go in the opposite direction, meaning the cars have more aerodynamic down force and more mechanical grip.
