I must say, I was expecting some more spectacular changes
Although the nose looks slimmer and longer...

I will only be interested in Ferrari F1 when they've got Montoya and Villeneuve on board.

However, if they get the talented Raïkkonen, I might change my opinion.....I might

No Rick, it is obviously a special "disc warping" device!

I agree though, but they have said that by Melbourne, it will look quite different, with talk of getting rid of the barge boards completely, and a new front wing. Seems to me as though it wasnt quite ready to launch

Re: 2004 Ferrari Launch

It doesn't look hugely different to me, much less radical than the new Williams or McLaren. Obviously there are the regulatory changes, longer rear wing endplates, loss of a rear wing element and the longer engine cover (shame as this was one of the best areas of the old car).

I'm not keen on all the extra sprouting wings fore of the rear wheels. IMO the Renault solution is far more elegant in this area.

The rear is surprisingly slim which shouts of some lovely packaging back there. I hope they've got the heat management right.

The twin arched lower rear wing support looks like an interesting effort to retain some rear downforce lost by the missing third element. I like it!

They've obviously made a lot of effort with those twin bargeboards. Looking from above, the sidepod entries are angled back quite a lot and very high, not like the other cars that run without bargeboards (B.A.R. and Toyota) which run a much squared profile. I'd be surprised if they suddenly disappeared before Melbourne.

I can't really tell much about the front wing from the photos I've seen so I'll reserve judgement on this.

Can't wait to see it run in a couple of weeks time.
