Rumors and speculation

PU ranked

Measurements by Red Bull and Mercedes indicate the Ferrari PU produces 4 kilowatts (5.4 bhp) more than Honda and 8 kilowatts (10.8 bhp) more than Mercedes.

The advantage should increase after Ferrari updates the hybrid system and use of more aggressive spark maps.

Car Bacon

Ferrari and RBC were several kilos overweight from the minimum 798 kilograms limit. Ferrari was about 7 kilos lighter than the Red Bull which is claimed to equate to three tenths. Red Bull claims a 5 kilos reduction for Spain.

Aston (green Red Bull)

Dan Fallows (former head of RBR Aero) will bring the B spec. Unsurprisingly, it looks similar to the Red Bull.

Green Red Bull

At least this team is consistent.

Curious how Vettel feels to be back in a Red Bull?

"And asked how he [Max Verstappen] was enjoying fighting with Charles Leclerc and Ferrari in 2022, rather than the Lewis Hamilton/Mercedes combo he battled last year, Verstappen replied: “I really enjoyed the battles also last year and I do as well this year. Just different teams, which I think is good for Formula 1.
“I enjoy it; I know Charles a bit longer of course than… Lewis in general. And what I like is that I think there’s a lot of respect between the two teams as well – not only between the two drivers – and we can really go up to each other and say “you did a better job than us this week”, and they do the same.
“You always want to try and beat each other, but I think it also really motivates the team when you lose – you try and come back stronger. That’s nice and I really hope for the rest of the season it can be like that.
“I think that’s the nice thing about Formula 1 as well, and I think also for F1 in general, to have Ferrari back on top and in the front, it’s what they need.”"

Well I’m in Barcelona and the place is full of F1 bits and bobs. Loads of people going to watch it and even the local supermarket in the centre has an F1 car next to the checkouts. Going to be a very interesting race with all of the updates and it’s rather warm over the next few day here as well.

If you are going to copy, why not copy the best.

It wasn't as bad as in 2020 when they had 3D scaned the w10, this is a hybrid design meshing (where they actually have to prove their engineering and not just 3d scan a rivals car - which is illegal now) in the rb18 and the w13 air box design. So it is kind of all new in a sense. It's also not exactly redbull either, the side pods do have some differences, but it is very very very similar.


Mercedes also launched new upgrades to the floor, they have a new double tea tray now - with a different support mechanism that should be more linear like shock instead of a buckle (the same way RB and Ferrari do it), reprofiled floor strakes for the inlet - a very intriguing design too, venturi tunnels seem larger with parallel chanels to bleed off air, and a new what seems to be hinge mounted piece on the floor edge.

Lets see if this solves porpoising or atleast alleviates it.

I hate this ridiculously boring track but glad we’re here since this is when the development battle usually starts. Glad to see Ferrari bring updates, FINALLY!!!

Now let’s get past this and Monaco and get to some racier circuits.

I don’t think Barcelona will be boring with the new regs, they can follow much close in the faster corners now so it should be a little more interesting racing wise this time around.

The analysis of the ARM22b:




and this was done by a former racing point aerodynamcist, so he probably has a pretty good idea what he is talking about.

Car updates:




The big 3 all brought updates, mercedes with their new floor and some pretty decently major upgrades. This will be make it or break it for them, if the car is still problematic it likely is the end of the season for them.
