sounds interesting......they'll run with kers right? though i can see that this kers thing might be a main cause of reliability issues...
from what i have heard is not the different wheelbase but one KERS compatible and other incompatible.
I think all tops team will start season without kers.
No its definately long wheelbase and shorter wheelbase. Or at least what I read.
Its HUGE task ... i have full doubt about this theory!.
Ferrari has started development of F2009(?) since January or March.Its no secret they struggle to keep pace with other teams...
"I can't deny we are running a bit late. Let's say that I would like to have tried our system already. We have a lot to do but time is short. Even though we have two weeks more compared to the past, we must follow the collective tests calendar. There's a test in mid January and we can't miss it," shared technical director Aldo Costa to 'Gazzetta dello Sport'.
Certainly Mclaren has more resources than Ferrari ..so it might be possible.
