Aldo Costa gives more hints on 2009 Formula 1 cars

No more cooling vents in 2009 ?

No more cooling vents in 2009 ?

Aldo Costa talked to Gazzette dello Sport on Ferrari’s progress with KERS development. Besides telling the world that Ferrari is still behind the schedule with the KERS he also revealed some details on the look of next year’s Formula 1 cars:

“The front wing will be striking because it will be as wide as the car’s track (the distance between the wheels on the same axle). A lot of them will come off because, since they cover the wheels, it will be easy to lose them in crashes. On top of that, the rear wing will be taller and narrower, the bodywork smoother and more sealed off because we won’t have the current liberty of opening air vents anymore, and this has forced us to heavily re-design the cooling system.”


The completely new look of 2009 Formula 1 cars will be result of the radical new regulations that will come into effect from next season. So far all we could see “live” is the narrow rear wing tested by Williams in Jerez. Costa’s description is very much in line with the expectations – 2009 Formula 1 cars look – The most obvious differences – although nobody has spoken yet about new front wings coming off easily :-) . I must admit that I also heard here for the first time about lack of the cooling vents on next year’s F1 cars.
