The ongoing F1 season has been as glorious as the previous one for Red Bull. The team came up with a new car i.e. RB20 and continued their performance from where they left with RB19 last year. Max Verstappen-led squad has been phenomenal with three race wins in the four GPs of the season.

Notably, the second-best Team is Ferrari which won a race in Australia and has constantly made it to the podium. Now, to cover up the gap between them and Red Bull team is reportedly looking to copy Adrian Newey’s startling innovation on the RB20.

In the upcoming upgrade package team is looking to bridge the gap and change the fortunes. Notably, RB20 has a great aerodynamic upgrade as Newey added a double inlet system to the side of the car. Out of these one with air coming in horizontally and another with a more traditional vertical inlet. This setup helped improve airflow and made the car sleeker.

It has helped the car to outperform any other vehicle on the racing track which caught Ferrari’s eyes to make a massive overhaul in their SF-24. According to various media reports, Ferrari is looking to make its interpretation of the similar aerodynamics theory to improve the air intake.

What are the other changes?

Apart from the changes in the intel system, Ferrari is also looking to make significant changes in floor other areas. The SF24 will have all these changes to improve its aerodynamics. These include a new floor design, a small adjustment to the front wing, and added deflectors near the cockpit. These changes are meant to make the SF24 perform better in the air.

It has also been reported that after finishing 1-2 in the Australian GP Ferrari chief Fred Vasseur asked the team factory to make these drastic changes. The modified version of SF-24 will be launched during the 2024 Emilia Romagna GP at Imola. Ferrari will look to start a dominating run from their home track in Imola after bringing the upgraded SF-24.
