2) The Cl and drag figures seemed a bit odd - are the Cl figures meant to be negative?

3) Rumour only - someone who should know told me that Ferraris never meet their advertised aero specs when tested in other company wind tunnels.

4) Ferrari, as far as I know, never publish any peer-reviewed tech papers on their cars (and if I have that wrong, I'd love to see some).

Worth watching - but I'd suggest with a skeptical and analytical eye, perhaps.
These are neither simulations nor smoke tests.
CGIs for marketing presentations, I expected you to understand that.

There are some things hidden there in presentations, already applied in normal cars.
