It's that front end ‘power' the Ferrari engineers were talking about. You brake late and work more speed into the corner entry, safe in the knowledge that those fat front Michelin Super Sports up front will bite. And bite they do, with the strength of a pit-bull. There is little body roll. Once you've turned in about 20mph faster than you think possible, and still not experienced a trace of understeer, you attack the next bend 20mph faster again. Ah. Still no understeer. Right, faster then, faster. And so it goes.
