Autosport F1 Podcast: Our verdict on Ferrari's 2020 SF1000 car

Podcast: Our verdict on Ferrari's 2020 car

In the latest edition of The Autosport Podcast, our team dissects Ferrari's 2020 Formula 1 challenger following its public launch on Tuesday evening.

Autosport's Technical Editor Jake Boxall-Legge and former Ferrari F1 engineer Rodi Basso highlight the key areas of tech interest on the SF1000, which at a first glance is not dissimilar to its 2019 predecessor but is already sporting a number of changes - in particular around the bargeboard area.

Host Alex Kalinauckas also speaks to ex-F1 commentator James Allen and F1 Editor Jonathan Noble to discuss Ferrari's theatrical launch event, and consider what Ferrari needs to do if it is to win the championship in 2020.

The extend to which members of the team - notably Ferrari's four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel and team boss Mattia Binotto - are under pressure, and how Vettel's and Charles Leclerc's relationship will develop, is also considered.

Basso, who was Rubens Barrichello's race performance engineer at the Scuderia in the early 2000s, explains what the mood is like in teams' camps at this time of year as they reveal their new cars.
