The 2D map of the Rubik’s cube after the F move shows the F face rotated anticlockwise. Shouldn't it be a clockwise turn?

sage: rubik = CubeGroup()
sage: print(rubik.repr2d("F"))

The question is easier to study if you provide a complete set of commands that allow others to reproduce your problem from a fresh Sage session.

Please edit your question to provide that.

All the moves are encoded as counterclockwise by the looks of it. However, if you are imagining that the cube in unfolded in such a way that you're looking at the inside of the cube, you can interpret the moves as clockwise.
