F2008 – Ferrari’s 2008 F1 Challenger Unveiled

Ferrari F2008 Top ViewThe 2008 launch season kicked off with Ferrari unveiling their 2008 challenger – F2008. The new car has been designed by the team around Ferrari’s technical director Aldo Costa. The car will get its first taste of the track action tomorrow with Kimi Raikkonen behind the wheel of the No. 1 car at Fiorano. Especially when viewed from the top it looks like one mean machine… The car is still under development and it is very likely that the aero parts will look totally different when the winter testing season is over.

    Yes indeed it looks mean. Lets see what Felipe and Kimi can do with it.

    I think it’s a looker but quite muddled around the sidepods; too many bits sticking out. Still, hopefully it’ll perform well enough to challenge for the titles again.

    Those bits sticking out will get even worse during the season :-) Some more turbulence behind the car …

    let’s hope the 2009 aero rules will get rid of those …

    i hope that Ferrari AND 2-3 other teams get their cars right and we have exciting season

    I’m waiting for the photos of the McLaren. I’m sure they will be very blurry and hard to make out haha
