That's poorest excuse Ferrari ever came up with. According to them, carbon-fiber of the wing, wing struts, nose, wishbones doesn't get old. No, it only happens on the part of the chassis where it is several times thicker and less stressed. No one ever expected them to confess that they've cut off shredded front end of Schuey's 1999 Silverstone crash car, superglued new front bit, polished it and sold it to Kroymans as chassis 193 instead of 192 (it is very easy to replace chassis plates, takes only few 10 minutes).
BTW, ever heard of Historic F1 championship? How come that such thing never happened on chassis which are several times older and pushed much harder than Kroymans movie low speed cruising.
