I'm surprised the article hasn't got the pictures. They've been on the net for a couple of weeks or more. It's widely believed to be an LMP1 car.

Some say le mans and others say F1. The testing occured in july. Its a turbo engine but I dont think its LMP1. Diesel is the way to go and that doesnt sound like the LMP1 engines. If Ferrari were developing a diesel it would be massive news.

I don't see why they would put it in a LaFerrari when they could just fit it to last years car for a more representative test.

Because its against the rules to test in a car that isn't two years old? Because your not suppose to be able to run the engine on track yet? Then you have to request tyres from Pirelli. Retrofit a 2011 Formula 1 car with a completely different engine which requires twice the amount of cooling, totally different rear end and engine cover ontop of a barebones F1 pit crew. Or, because your just getting engine data and reliability, you can adapt the La Ferrari which would be much easier than redesigning a formula 1 car, which would still be illegal to do as you must surrender CFD time to do a practical test.

Looks to me more about testing the engine, especially with the elongated rear end to contain the engine an kers attached unit, along with the roof air intake for cooling and then the central exhaust;

La Ferrari

2014 turbo engine;

It's no more work than trying to fit it in to that chassis.
I still don't think it's the F1 engine.

It may not be, but Ferrari havn't comitted to LMP1, and are fully focused on F1 right which to me points to the 1.6 turbo. But they cant test it in an F1 car because its not allowed. Remember, any testing must be gone through the FIA and surrender CFD time. Its not be published by the FIA or agreed with other teams.

Honda will be testing the car all this year, in a non-f1 chassis because they can get around it.

Apparently Chilton has chosen #10.
I wonder if he saw my Chil10 suggestion when this all started :D

I never met him, but he always had a presence in the McLaren motorhome and was hugely supportive of Jenson. RIP.

He was one of those dad's in the paddock, where you couldnt help but laugh at the pink shirt, and see the enthusiasm and passion ooze through him.

The first win for Jenson back in Australia 2010;
