More info from the same journo, the car will have a step nose, but less pronounced.


Someone saw the car and told a Spanish journo who is now reporting like he's clapped eyes on it himself. All seems a bit farfetched.

I don't know, journalists are in Maranello, they are in contact with people of the team, the Spanish journalist are in contact with the Spanish drivers, I don't see that farfetched that he asked to someone how does it look?, or it's the nose as ugly as last year?. But we will see, barely and hour to see it.

Why? How it looks will tell you absolutely nothing about Ferrari's chances this year. Today is for fun, nothing else.

Well Ferrari and McLaren go in similar route it seems. Similar nose and exhaust concepts. Car looks much better with this nose! :)

Inestesting slots up the rear wing edge.

Looks well developed in places. Wonder how close this is to what will be the test car?

I don't hate the livery. It's the biggest change for Ferrari in a long time. From the side it does remind me of a Marussia.

How'd they get the images, directory hunting on their servers? Can't imagine Ferrari would make them widely available before the launch - doubt they wanted their car launched by a UK blogger.

Yeah, Fernando fell in love with the car immediately when he saw it... I like the red-white-black combination and the new nose as well!

Funny how people with McLaren drivers on their avatar are calling car ugly, and people with Ferrari drivers are calling car beautiful :rotfl:
