Richard, correct the FERRARI flat twelve was not a boxer it had an interesting crankshaft running in only four main bearings.
To another question, a one hundred and eighty degree flat or boxer (number of cylinders doesn't matter) is of no use to F1 installation now a days.
Yet to another question, a boxer engine will have a separate crankshaft journal (crank pin) for each cylinder.
A one hundred and eighty degree flat or V engine will have a crankshaft journal (crank pin) for two cylinders (two con rods side by side.
