Re: 2014 Rolex Australian Grand Prix Free Practice and Qualy

You can definatly tell when a car is running less power just from the sound, they dont spool up as quick and the genral noise is really noticeable! In my opinion the ferrari engine sounds the bes...

Re: Ferrari testing 2014 engine in a LaFerrari?

Is this kind of testing allowed? Why not? It's only the engine and not the F1 car. How would manufacturers develop the new engine if they coudln't test it? I don't know, that's why I asked. The engine is still part of an F1 car, so are they prohibited against testing of complete F1 cars only? This ...
