Ferrari working full throttle on the 2012 car – Domenicali

Published

on

Aug.23 – The Italian F1 outfit Ferrari now focusing the development of 2012 innovative car, even though it still holds out some hope that it can haul itself back into this year’s title battle. And he says team are fully motivated after the summer break, but concedes that the chances of fighting for the title are slim, and thus race wins are the target.

“Our realistic goal for the remaining eight grands prix is to win races, to score as many points as possible,” Domenicali told the official Ferrari website. “I am sure we can achieve good results, but we should avoid looking at the classification, because we know the championship will be very difficult given the current gap, but let’s see where it is in a few races. We have the potential to do well and we have to believe in ourselves.

“In terms of the development of the 150º Italia, we are almost at the end of the road but this does not mean that work on this year’s car has come to a complete halt, but as of now, we are working full throttle on the 2012 car.

Stefano Domenicali has reiterated that 2012 season car will be more pioneering than other latest Ferraris as the team wants to set the pace from the start.

“As far as next year’s regulations are concerned, apart from rules regarding the exhaust system, there are not many changes; therefore the new cars can be described as a development of the 2011 car. However, what I can say, having seen the model in the wind tunnel and the work going on in the drawing office, is that it will be a very innovative machine. In fact, this is to be expected, this is necessary given that our first goal is that, in 2012, we must be competitive right from the very start of the season.”
