Ferrari Launch Their 2009 Car The F60

Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro have become the first team of 2009 to launch their new car, named the F60.

The car is completly different to their 2008 challenger thanks to the swathes of new rules and regulations brought in for the new season.

The car has a wide front wing, with sculpted tops.  It also has fancy inward facing end plates.  The car also features interesting wing mirror mountings on aerodynamic sidepieces, which are bolted into the main floor.  The car is also dominated by a very narrow rear with which maintains the sloping back endplates.

Ferrari hope the new car can bring them 2009 title success.

“As you can see the car is not an evolution of last year’s car,” said technical director Aldo Costa.

“It’s a completely new car, starting from a white piece of paper. Fundamentally the biggest changes come from the new rules from an aerodynamic point of view and the introduction of new technology, which is the KERS system.

“Because of that we had to start work pretty early and to review the main concept of the car, so it was a very very intense and long job.”

  1. Luca Badoer,, still has the best job in the planet! (ok,, you too Marc)

    7:00, get up,, breakfast, shower, put on firesuit

    9:30 show up at fiorano or Mugello,, drive new Ferrari F1 car

    12:00 fine lunch served up by lovely pasta place across the street from fiorano (word has it Schumi’s favorite (in the world!))

    1:00 drive more F1 Ferraris till they break.

    4:00 get out of car,, lounge around for rest of day as complete badass, as per usual.

    (Yes, I’m aware it was Felipe at Mugello today (10:30am their time),, just putting out my jealousy for the F1 testers for the prancing horse, in my opinion, the greatest job in the world).
