So what regs are they racing under? I hope they don't do a BMW and make a big show of developing their new car halfway through a season and go into the following season and end up last.

Suppose they're thinking they don't really have that much of a choiche though. Since their current car obviously isn't fast enough they probably want to more or less start from scratch, and that takes time. Don't know exactly what flaws this design has but if it's something fundamental they won't want to go the otherwise easier route of basing the car for next season on this one.

If there is a fatal flaw in the F60 it would make sense to start work on a new design. Given the improvement in the car's performance, it would make sense to use the F60 as a point of departure for the 2010 car and the rest of the season as a series of on-track tests and take what podiums/wins may come. Unless, of course, Ferrari is attempting to lull the competetion into a false sense of security. F1 teams don't tell fibs about their intentions do they?

Kick ar$e it will. You know why? 'Cos they will have the best driver in the world driving for them next year (Alonso). If it's anywhere in the same ballpark as the other top cars, look for him to make the difference and take it all the way to the top.
