Ferrari working on ‘courageous’ 2022 F1 car with ‘quite aggressive’ front wing/nose appeared first on Scuderia Fans.
Ferrari’s dismal Campaign of 2020 have let them recovered in 2021 to fight with McLaren over P3 in the Constructors’, registering two pole positions and four podium finishes so far.
The next stage then is the all-new 2022 car, and Italian journalist Giuliano Duchessa has given an update on the work done so far.
Ferrari’s 2022 project is number 674. That is the progressive internal code with which the car is identified by all the GeS until the final decision of the real name.

But according to a report from Italy’s Formu1a.uno, the design of the new Ferrari has already deviated from that show car design.
“Our front/nose is now defined and will be significantly different from that seen at Silverstone [on the show car presented by Liberty Media],” an internal source at Ferrari is quoted by the Italian publication.
“As for the drawings, those of the tank, chassis and suspension are completed.
“It is always all relative, but the data coming out of the simulator satisfies us. On this front, an interesting problem was that of interpreting the approach on kerbs and on slow corners.”
Internally, the 2022 Ferrari project has been designated ‘674’, with the car being referred to by that name within the team until a final decision is made in the weeks leading up to the launch.
Of course, what Ferrari would love to know right now is if the 2022 challenger they are building will be competitive enough to win races.
That is something Ferrari cannot yet answer, but their attempt to achieve this goal is apparently set to be “brave”.
“Nobody knows if the Ferrari 674 will be competitive to win, not even Maranello knows it, but from the signals collected it seems we can expect something rather brave for 2022,” Duchessa wrote.
