Ferrari F1 team has confirmed that well-known former veteran chief designer Rory Byrne will be working on 2014 turbo F1 car.

Ferrari’s legendary former chief designer Rory Byrne was attended new F138 launch at Maranello, he was the designer of the winning Benetton and Ferrari cars of the Michael Schumacher period in ’90s and near the beginning ’00s.

The South African engineer moved out from the role of chief designer at Ferrari in 2006, following he continue, as a consultant, at Ferrari for another two years which lead him until early 2009. In 2012, Byrne was involved in the design of the Ferrari F2012 Formula One car, as well as the Ferrari F70.

“It’s a nice car,” Bryne said of the new F138, before adding: “But it’s all child’s play compared to what awaits us in 2014!”

“The 2014 car will be very different,” Ferrari’s technical director Pat Fry agreed.

“Aerodynamically the exhaust effect is changed with the turbo and exhaust positions being different, the front wing development will be new, while the rear wing constitutes another major change.”

For the moment Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo is discontented with the judgment to force teams to change from V8 to V6 technology 2014 season.

“A V6 engine is not part of the Ferrari tradition. I continue to maintain, for economic, musical and power reasons that it would be better to stick with eight cylinders,” he told journalists in the launch event.

“But the decision has been taken to build the V6 and if next year, there will be modifications that are in the best interests of F1, then I will even be pleased to see this engine at work.”
