Ferrari Modify Exhaust Design

Scuderia Ferrari have reported that they have modified their exhaust design in the wake of other teams criticising and claiming that they contravened rules.

The 2009 season sees the regulations dramatically changed, and it was alleged that the Ferrari tailpipes were slightly too long and protruded out of the bodywork too far.

Toyota, Williams and McLaren all believed the design to be illegal and took their concerns up with the FIA.  Toyota and Williams themselves are now in ‘hot water’ over their rear diffuser design.

A Maranello source claimed that the pipes were now muich more flush with the body, and that the team were certain nothing else on the car contravened any regulations.
