  1. ATTENTION: http/https Bug Fix! Most of us have been experiencing problems staying logged in as we navigate the site. That is simply the result of links varying between http and https, which each require different logons. To resolve we are going to force https starting sometime Wednesday. However, you may have problems accessing FerrariChat until after you log out, clear cookies/browser cache, and log back on. Keep in mind my email is admin@ferrarichat.com if you do have access problems after Wednesday. Thanks!

    I really hope Mac goes orange. I hope Renault stays yellow. I hope Haas does anything different.

    I don't think so. I think the TR "model" is just a "stand-in" for livery purposes. I do however, taking into account the pic of the Manor and pic of the SFH-17 using the "2016 livery" that they will use a "shark-fin" or "dolphin-fin" in the back....they seem consistent from a fin perspective if you look at both pics.

    The new rear wings are 150 mm lower than last year.
    Apparently, as a result, the vortices created by the front suspension now don't shoot through unterneath the rear wing any longer. The shark fins help maintaining consistency/reduce effect of vortices during cornering.

    Cars running higher rake (RBR) should, naturally, be less affected. Mercedes running very low more so. Apparently for that reason RBR tried to get shark fins declared illegal. Didn't succeed.
