Ferrari launch 2010 car

January 28, 2010

 Ferrari has launched their 2010 challenger, the F10, and as predicted there seems to be a heavy influence from the RB5.

 The car appears to have quite a few changes including a longer wheel base than last year’s car which will be a result of the larger fuel tanks, the nose is sharp and taken from Newey’s Red Bull design and there has been substantial change to the sidepods.  However, we do not yet know what is underneath the shell of the car.

We won’t know where the car is with its pace until testing begins but this car appears to be a big break away from the previous season. This will be comforting to Ferrari fans as the squad was caught out with the aero rules and the diffuser issue last year. The F60 struggled throughout and could only manage one win at Spa (video below of that race), it was a big blow to Ferrari’s pride and reputation and they will be expecting a much better season for 2010.

Even if the car isn’t immediately at the top it is highly unlikely Ferrari will freeze development and go back to the drawing board again. This means that they can keep pushing forward with development and keep improving the car.

Massa was expected to give the car a shakedown at the Fiorano circuit but due to poor weather conditions this has been called off.

Here are some pictures of the car and video of the launch . What do you think of the F10? How will Ferrari do this season?

    As feared Ferrari website overloaded during launch. More than 3 million people had logged on. It all stopped just as Alonso started talking!
