Assetto Corsa Ferrari SF70-H vs Ferrari SF15-T

The 2017 Formula 1 regulations were designed to make the cars look more aggressive, and be up to 5 seconds a lap faster than the 2015 spec Formula 1 cars. I took a 2015 Ferrari SF15-T, and a current spec 2017 Ferrari SF70-H around Spa to find out how they compare against each other.

    Cool video! I assume the vast majority of the performance gap comes from the wider tires.

    The 2017 car takes a lot more confidence to drive properly. Braking later, getting on the power earlier, and trusting your right foot to stay flat through Pouhon are things you need to get used to.

    Wow, flat through Pouhon?!? I had no idea!

    Those have to be some serious G's.
