Re: Is this the new Ferrari?

It would be an improvement, that's for sure! Except for the Caterham for the initial several races, Ferrari had the worst looking nose last year.

I'm not sure F1 is smart enough for inexpensive, powerful engines. The current "power units" are a $20 million laboratory, only making 650 HP, plus electric boost. Part of their expense lies with the completely unnecessary limit of 5 units a year. This only INCREASES the cost, because each component...
