Ferrari F1 team unveils F60 monopost

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

The first to launch a racecar for the 2009 F1 series, Ferrari has unveiled the F60 in a low-profile event at the firm's Maranello base.

The F60 designation stands for the fact that it was only the Ferrari brand that run all 60 seasons and is in no way connected to a famous supercar ten years ago with the same name.

Due to F1's regulations for this year the F60 comes with a lower but wider front wing and a taller but narrower rear wing.

This new aerodynamic configuration will certainly have a considerably lesser amount of downforce in contrast to last year's version, however, this current version enables the driver to make some minor adjustments for the front wing from the cockpit.

A return of slick tires and the optional Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) will be seen on the F60.

The KERS of Ferrari has been developed in collaboration with Magneti Marelli and is mounted on engine at the center under the back part of the chassis.

Further details consist of a reduced rpm from 19,000 to 18,000 revs, and a 7-speed gearbox and a modified Type 056 V8 engine that must, in accordance with the latest regulations, last three races.
