The fitting of the new simulator was completed this week in a new building that sits between the main office of the Gestione Sportiva at Maranello and the Fiorano track. 

Ferrari has revealed that calibration work will be carried out ahead of its use in September as the Italian marquee begins simulator work for its 2022 challenger. 

Its current simulator will still be used for development work on Ferrari’s SF21 - the 2021 car, in preparation for race weekends, as well as supporting members of the Ferrari Driver Academy.

Ferrari’s new simulator took two years to build and has been described as “generational”.

It is a result of a collaboration between the team and Dynisma - a UK-based company headed up by former Ferrari dynamics engineer, Ashley Warne.

“Simulation and digital technology are going to play an ever more important role in the development of a Formula 1 car and we believe we have made the best possible choice, focusing on creating a tool that will enable us to make a generational leap in this sector,” Ferrari’s head of supply chain Gianmaria Fulgenzi said.

“To produce it, we chose Dynisma, a young and dynamic company. It has taken two years to complete this project and now we are ready to start using it on the 674 project, which is the name given to the car that will be produced based on the new technical regulations that come into force in 2022.”

Ferrari sits fourth in the constructors’ championship after nine rounds in 2021.
