Ferrari has decided they are going to launch ‘Scuderia’s 2012’ in 2012 which is being called a strong contender of its predecessor of 2012. As the show was precisely depending on internet, so it couldn’t create a buzz like the previous ones. But, it has made some remarkable changes in its features. These changes make the car more worthy and powerful.
The remarkable changes are re-positioned radiators, front height, position of the exhaust outlet, changes to the electronic engine controls, the use of pull-rods to operate the suspension for better aerodynamics and a lower center of gravity.
The radiators have been re-positioned. The backside exhaust emitting system have been impacted by the new regulations that stipulate the exhausts exit within a very tight space in order to minimize the aerodynamic influence. Replacing the old oval or flattened exhausts, new exhausts are 100 mm of cylindrical which is sited at a particular vertical and horizontal angle in between 10 and 30 degrees upwards. The new gear casing has been designed in a narrow shape. The ‘wings’ that can be adjusted with hydraulic system has also been retained along with revision of Bembo brake system. The engine has also been modified. In fact, most effort has been expended on increasing longevity rather than power. Within the three official test sessions which is being called Pre-season testing time, the chassis are being harmonized with Pirelli tires.
