Ferrari’s Impressive Upgrades Face New Challenge with Dirty Air Problem
Following Charles Leclerc’s second-place finish in the Austrian Grand Prix, Ferrari fans are optimistic about the team’s performance in the championship this season. Ferrari has made significant updates to their car in recent races, showing improved pace and progress on track. However, these upgrades come with a new challenge related to the management of dirty air and its impact on the car’s performance.
At the start of the 2022 season, Ferrari adopted an in-wash sidepods solution while Mercedes went for zero-pods and Red Bull chose downwash sidepots. Over time, it became clear that Red Bull’s downwash concept was the most successful choice, and other teams, including Ferrari, have followed suit.
