F1 » Ferrari boss: Only thing I ask is for a competitive car...


Luca di Montezemolo: We have brought in some new blood to the team, but always with a dynamic evolution of the organisation in mind. Once in a while, this applies to any company, not just those in F1, as it is worth while allowing a bit of fresh air in, with an injection of a new mentality and culture, strengthening areas in which we have the greatest need to increase our levels of competence.

Maybe if they paint little Teddy Bears inside FM's cockpit, he will be inspired and outperform the car..
I don't know if there are any Ice Hockey fans out there, but Ferrari reminds me so much of the Montreal Canadiens, petulantly demanding respect based on past greatness, but not doing anything in the now to deserve it. What a soap opera.

They have a ride height system activated by brake pedal. The front wing of the red bull. 5 ex McL employees. And have signed the Concorde early. Must have gotten all the goodies they were looking for.

Rob01: The ride height devices are controlled by brake torque, not the brake pedal itself. If the pedal was controlling the ride height of a car it would become a movable aerodynamic device and thus be deemed illegal.

Rob, I was just posting about the system on another page “to both you and Victor” incredible to read that some self appointed FI experts on mostly British sites saying the system is operated by the driver operating a switch.

rob. you are a little behind. lotus debuted the system at the young driver tests. it is operated by the torque on the calipers and has been confirmed by fia as totally legal. it was passed about a week ago. ferrari also have a similar system, and this is also with fia for final passing. it eliminates the need for a flexi wing.

oh, and if lulu was driving the car that you hate (ferrari), he would not have been ramming flip in his ferrari.......or would he? leopards, and all that....

Once the system is activated(brake) the hydraulic fluid used could be release at any time/rate. Allowing the team to further control the ride height and balance of the car in any direction through out the lap as they desired. Sounds like another drivers aid.
