My eyes hurt! :blink:

This is not just about Hamilton's abilities as super-model, those clothes are horrible. Period.

Early speculation of the new Ferrari.
Probably is incorrect as I thought the nose was to be lower, and the front week smaller?

At the Ferrari forums there are claims of a single rear exhaust. (Not shown in the illustration.)
As well that the nose cone will instead be shape like an eagle's beak.

Also came across Lotus's new innovation. Article by James Allen.

Yep, the suspension type pull-rod like in Red Bull, and the driving position (of the drivers inside the car) like in the McLaren

Well it wouldn't be a surprise for Ferrari to copy Red Bull & McLaren. Problem is that they have to improve on their rivals design. Not easy.

Isn't that against rule book even though it works only if driver pushes a button.

As I said, the shown image cannot be the new Ferrari due to new rules of the the nose design?

And yes, it claims an evolution to the Red Bull suspension, and the drivers will lie lower like McLaren's.
As well the radiators in the side pods will be longer bringing the intakes more forward.
The nose cone will feature a step to increase downforce along the suspension line.

Other news that I came across in the Italian papers, is that Rory Byrne is aiding with the design of a new diffuser, which most likely will be kept secret till the first race.

What's there to copy when all the car's are pretty much restricted to a similar design. It's all about balancing the corners these days.
Aside from McLaren's side pods, last year really didn't produce anything in design innovation.

Hamashima joins Ferrari

Quote:
Ferrari has signed Bridgestone’s former technical chief Hirohide Hamashima, it emerged from the ‘Wrooom’ media event in the Italian Dolomites on Wednesday.

The news was announced by Stefano Domenicali, the famous team’s boss.

Better known as ‘Hammy’, Japanese Hamashima, 52 will be in charge of the interaction between the new Ferrari car and its Pirelli tyres and other “tyre issues”, Domenicali said.

Still without an official name, the 2012 single seater – codenamed 663 – will be revealed at the team’s headquarters on February 3, just before a Fiorano shakedown.

Official testing begins the following week at Jerez.

Domenicali on Wednesday also denied reports that Ferrari has already secretly inked a new Concorde Agreement with Bernie Ecclestone.


Ferrari is working so hard, they hired Steve Clark couple of days ago with a bunch of Mclaren's engineers. They just need the key man "Adrian Newey"!

I found these information on another forum:

Quote:
- From La Gazzetta dello Sport' on the 2012 Ferrari: Pull-Rod suspension, the pilots will go lower
- rear spoiler interim provisional front wing, xtraction of single channel internal heat, modifications of the nose, escapes defined area, storage rooms
- F2012 in February and in Melbourne with luck, will have changed more than 60% visibly
- the front wing will have some appendices are not reflected in the simulation, logical thing obviously
- from La Gazzetta article The nose shows changes on the outside not inside;)
- And nothing from the exhaust, is a simulation of something 'simplistic'. If you teach the diffuser off and let's go;)
- The wheelbase is maybe shorter front
- Venting heat from a single central hole
- DRS yet not finshed
- Stepped nose and front wing introduced in Korea will be more developed and certainly not 'simple' looking;)
