Ferrari promise 2024 challenger will be 'very different'

Ferrari plans to introduce an all-new car concept from next season after failing to achieve 2023 targets.

Ferrari's Head of Aero Development Enrico Cardile has claimed that the team's 2024 challenger will be "very different" compared to their current car.

The SF-23 is largely an evolution of the F1-75, which is why it suffered from the similar tyre degradation problems earlier in the season during a race stint.

The team plans to switch concepts from next year after both Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz complained of aero "peakiness" that the SF-23 generates, which predominantly happens at the high downforce circuits.

Ferrari's pace in the low downforce circuits has been their strengths so far this year, with Monza being the standout performance where they managed to challenge Red Bull on merit for the victory.

Cardile said the team will produce an entirely new concept, which RacingNews365 Technical Analyst Paolo Filisetti explored in a recent piece.

Next years car will not be an evolution

"It [2024 car] will be very different, because developing this year’s car we realised that some architectural choices we made were not right," Cardile explained to media including RacingNews365.

"It was constraining the development too much.

"Next year’s car will not be an evolution of this year’s car like this year’s car has been compared to last year’s car.

"It will be a brand new car – different chassis with different design, different rear end to allow our aero [department] to better develop the car to achieve their targets."
