She did - on Facebook...

Dani: was so excited to see the first pictures of the F150 from Maranello this morning! :-) 2011 starts right now!!!! Forza Ferrari!

Reply 1: So Ferrari has designed a Ford truck now? I guess Alain Prost was right, the Ferrari does handle like a truck.

Ahhh, I have been waiting for 3 days to get that one off my chest!! Thanks, Dani. Smile

Reply 2: @Reply1 - 2 for 2 lols! Keep 'em coming, c'est tres funnies!

Reply3: I saw the car, and then I was possessed by a sudden urge to buy some Marlboro.... ;-)

PS: What's with the Italian Flag colours on the Rear Wing...? Bit of a departure IMHO...


Me...I'm waiting for HRT to unveil their futuristic space-hopper...!

LOL!!! Yes, admitedly I have been running around like a chicken with my head off this week so I haven't had time to post! Surprised I just got promoted at my job and they transferred me to a different location (which is seriously 1 hour away from my place!) They are going to KILL me when I give them my notice! LOL! In addition, I was offered an entry level job with a PR company as well! I had to laugh, because if this had happened 1 year ago things might have been different. At least I know that I have made the right decision as neither one of these offers has tempted me into staying. Very Happy

Anyway, back to the most important thing...FERRARI!!! I am really pumped about the F150. (despite cheap jabs at the name...a friend of mine even stopped by my office yesterday just to make fun of the name!lol!) The high nose is very cute and I am very confident about the reshuffeling that was done in the off season! Now all that's left to do is to wait and see if it's fast. I am full of hope for this year! I love you

F150 for 150 years of Italian unification, hence the tricolori on the rear wing, and a little note with flag on the vertical fin in front of the sidepods. Nice touch I thought, good to see patriotism. Shame about the white of Santander!

The Renault R31:

The big news being, the exhausts are nowhere to be found at the rear of the car! Apparently they exit out the FRONT!! Rumour is that they exit near the front splitter near the front of the sidepods and blow either a front diffuser and/or the rear diffuser. Innovative indeed, if true...

It was discovered that when Vitaly was in a spin*, that he was actually faster when facing the wrong way than when he was facing the right way. As they had oodles* of data to compare, the boffins realised that they maybe onto something...

Rumours of the official launch date previously being April 1st are believed to be wide of the mark...

*EDIT* Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

Pos Driver Car Time Gap Laps
1. Sebastian Vettel Red Bull-Renault 1m13.769s 93
2. Nico Hulkenberg Force India-Mercedes 1m13.938s + 0.169s 71
3. Gary Paffett McLaren-Mercedes 1m14.292s + 0.523s 91
4. Paul di Resta Force India-Mercedes 1m14.461s + 0.692s 28
5. Fernando Alonso Ferrari 1m14.553s + 0.784s 97
6. Kamui Kobayashi Sauber-Ferrari 1m15.621s + 1.852s 68
7. Jerome D'Ambrosio Virgin-Cosworth 1m16.003s + 2.234s 71
8. Vitaly Petrov Renault 1m16.351s + 2.582s 28
9. Michael Schumacher Mercedes 1m16.450s + 2.681s 15
10. Jaime Alguersuari Toro Rosso-Ferrari 1m17.214s + 3.445s 19
11. Rubens Barrichello Williams-Cosworth 1m17.335s + 3.566s 77
12. Narain Karthikeyan HRT-Cosworth 1m18.020s + 4.251s 45
13. Nico Rosberg Mercedes 1m19.930s + 6.161s 9


So - Mclaren, in last year's car, driven by a DTM Driver / F1 Tester, is SLOWER than another DTM Driver / F1 Tester in last year's Force India car - and yet both are faster than the NEW Ferrari in the hands of Nando.
And Hulkenberg, who's been dropped as an F1 Driver for 2011, in LAST year's Force India, is faster than just about anyone else, bar Vettel...



It's all over - can't wait for the 2012 season...

I'm gonna busy myself throughout 2011 with setting-up a new Facebook Site - GunJumpersR'Us

True enough, Revs.

I've read quite a bit about this new exhaust principle since you broke the news here...! I'm waiting for the full technical explanations to appear - and to see whether it'll become a "magic bullet" or another Williams Walrus Tusk "success" story. But radical thinking in the first instance.
Probably wouldn't work on my Golf though - I drive with the window down all the time, and I'd probably end-up asphyxiating myself...! Shocked

Jens has got to sort-out his qually pace this season - that let him down very badly last year. But for that, he was on Lewis' pace more often than not. If he can nail qually, as you say his smooth style on these "aggressively" designed tyres should pay dividends.


*EDIT* Mac have gone for pull-rod rear suspension this season, as per last year's RBR...which hopefully will allow them to stop looking like the car has NO suspension... Very Happy

...and then they've fitted the Official Press Launch car with a plastic engine and exhaust... Suspect

Ford is already taking them to court. They actually contacted Ferrari asking them to change the name before the launch! I hope this is not an omen of what's to come from Ferrari.

Here at SnappyTitlesR'Us, we thoroughly approve of the new name for Ferrari's 2011 challenger*... Rolling Eyes




Ferrari rebrands car after dispute
By Jonathan Noble Thursday, February 10th 2011, 15:14 GMT http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/89384

Ferrari has officially renamed its new Formula 1 car the 'F150th Italia' as an act of good faith to avoid confusion with Ford, in the wake of the American car company going to court over what it claims is a trademark infringement.

Ford's F-150 truck is a top-seller in the United States and the car manufacturer believes Ferrari breached its trademark in naming its new challenger the F150.

Although Ferrari has decided to rebrand its car, the F1 team says it does not understand why Ford believes there is any confusion.

"On the subject of the name of the new Ferrari Formula 1 car, the Maranello company wishes to point out that it has sent a letter of reply to Ford, underlining the fact that the F150 designation (used as the abbreviated version of the complete name, which is Ferrari F150th Italia) never has, nor ever will be used as the name of a commercially available product - indeed there will definitely not be a production run of single-seaters," said a statement issued by Ferrari.



* Rumours that Dodge are also to issue legal proceedings against Ferrari, for using the word "challenger", are believed to be wide-of-the-mark - mainly due to Dodge being a part of the Chrysler Group LLC which has an alliance with Fiat...

I would still keep the lawsuit running. It is still like saying the Ford Coca-Colan Festiva. You are still using a trade marked name.

Re Ford, what a load of fucking bullshit.

According to Ford, Ferrari has used the name "in order to capitalise on and profit from the substantial goodwill that Ford has developed in the F-150 trademark".

Fuck off! Like Ferrari sell their single seaters as profit?!?!?!


Grrrr makes my blood boil.

Dani- Agree with Ferrari? Well, even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

More that I disagree with Ford. If they were running a single seat truck with slick Pirelli's in Ecclestone's circus their argument could have some validity.

Perhaps most of the world should sue the U.S. for stealing many of their town names.

The farmer should sue Dell computers.

The world's monarchies should sue the purple musician guy from Minneapolis.

etc.
