Ferrari will have different teams to design 2013 and 2014 F1 cars simultaneously

Article by Christian A., on January 6, 2013

Ferrari will have different design teams that will develop next year's Formula One car at the same time. They will also work on the one for 2014, which is when the technical rules are expected to have significant changes. According to team principal Stefano Domenicali, work on a reorganization program had been ongoing for several months now.

He made his statements on the Ferrari website at ferrari.com. He explained that Ferrari will use the Toyota wind tunnel in Cologne, Germany, until August. This is because Ferrari’s own tunnel was shut down for rebuilding after it was determined to be the source of the failure of its aerodynamic updates this year.

Domenicali added that it has also implemented an improved way to divide the work between those who operate the wind tunnel and those who should focus more on the creative aspect.

Domenicali also said that this year, the company undertook too many projects simultaneously and maybe that’s why it wasn’t efficient enough. Ferrari had a slow start for the season even with the utmost efforts of driver Fernando Alonso, who concluded the season as runner-up to Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel, to make up for it.

Since 2007, the team hasn’t ever won a drivers' title. On the design aspect, Simone Resta will lead the work on the 2013 car while Fabio Montecchi will concentrate on the 2014 car under the overall supervision of chief designer Nikolas Tombazis. The launch for the 2013 is set at the end of January or early February, before the start of the first test at the Jerez circuit in southern Spain on Feb 5.
