The 2020 season has been the worst season for Ferrari in years. Team boss Binotto will have to work a miracle to succeed in 2021.
According to editor Paolo Filisetti, the regulations for next season will be a challenge. "The internal part of the suspension, chassis and cooling are parts that should be similar to the 2020 design and should be transferred to the new car," he says in La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

Ferrari will therefore have to take steps in the field of aerodynamics in particular, for which, according to the newspaper, the team will use the Red Bull Racing philosophy. "In terms of change in aerodynamics, we are seeing a thinner front end on the SF21. In terms of cooling, the bodywork will be thinner. This accentuated curvature tells Ferrari will follow the Red Bull philosophy".
In addition to the changes in aerodynamics, Ferrari will also have to work on the diffuser. According to the regulations, the diffuser has to be five centimetres higher. Falsetti claims that that problem alone is largely solved. "Ferrari plans to use a solution similar to the one at the end of 2020, with an emphasis on the centre of the diffuser". During the winter test, we will find out if the changes have affected the position of Ferrari.
