Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN C39 – Ferrari

Aerodynamic regulation

It remains largely unchanged compared to 2019 with only minor refinements.

New Front brake Ducts

At the front the philosophy of the front brake duct has been changed to a higher scoop inlet. Such change required the redesign of the entire front suspension.

Fuel Flow monitoring

In order to increase transparency the FIA has introduced a second fuel flow meter (FFM), fully encrypted and not visible by the Team.

Driver’s safety

The FIA has introduced a new and more stringent standard for driver’s overalls and underwear. The new materials need to last longer to flame exposure compared to previous safety standard.

Survival cell

The survival cell is the heart of the entire car and by far the most complicated structure in a modern Formula One car.

The survival cell is made from a sandwich style carbon composite structure. It offers superior stiffness to weight ratio and structural integrity.

The survival cell accommodates the driver’s cockpit area and it is secured to the engine and gearbox by 6 fasteners which have regulated dimensions and coordinates.

Power unit and gearbox

In the current era of hybrid Formula One power units, the main power source is provided by a V6 1600cc engine, mated to a single turbocharger. The energy harvested during a lap by two electric motors (MGUK and MGUH) is stored into a battery pack and deployed via a 120kW electric motor.

The gearbox has 8 forward gears and 1 reverse gear.

The entire drivetrain is supplied by Ferrari.

Tyres

The tyres are another key element. For the 2020 season, Pirelli is once again the official tyre supplier for the FIA Formula One Championship.

The construction and compounds are the same as 2019 but the compound allocation might vary this season compared to the 2019 allocation.

Pirelli provides five dry tyre compounds and two wet tyre compounds. The dry tyres options (code named C1 to C5) cover the full range from hardest to the softest compounds for the season. The two wet tyre compounds are the Xtreme Wet and the Intermediate. Three dry tyre compound options are defined by Pirelli for each race and will always be called: Hard (white color) / Medium (yellow) and Soft (red) . Teams then have the opportunity to select how many of each tyre to bring to a Grand Prix (total of 13 tyre sets per car) in order to optimise running and performance throughout the weekend.
