2010 Ferrari F10

The 2009 Ferrari F60 earned just a single victory for Raikonen despite the teams valiant efforts to field a worthy contender. Part of their efforts were hindered by their focus on winning both titles for the 2008 season. In the end, Ferrari would win the Constructors Championship while Lewis Hamilton from McLaren won the Drivers Championship in 2008. New rules and a ban on in-season testing for the 2009 season meant Ferrari was not on par with the other teams. One of its problems was its poor aerodynamics. Part way through the season, the team decided to stop development of the F60 and focus on its successor, the 2010 Ferrari F10 - the 56th single-seater car produced by Ferrari to compete in Formula One.

New rules for the 2010 season banned re-fueling during the race. As a result, the F10 is given a much larger fuel tank. Additional space was freed by the removal of the KERS (Kinetic Energy Recover System) unit, which all of the teams had agreed to abandon.

Though the F10 is a new car, it is nearly identical in respects to its mechanical configuration, to the F60. It is powered by a 2.4-liter V8 from the F60. The biggest changes to the car were to its design and its aerodynamics, including the nose and the wing.

The chassis is a carbon-fibre and honeycomb composite monocoque suspended by an independent suspension with pushrod activated torsion springs. The engine is a Ferrari Type 056, naturally-aspirated unit that has an 18,000 RPM limit. There is a Ferrari 7 speed semi-automatic sequential gearbox with a quick-shift limited-slip differential. The car rides on Bridgestone tires and BBS wheels.

Piloting the F10 for the 2010 season is Felipe Massa, who is joined by the two-time World Champion Fernando Alonso.

Another good start in Valencia

After yesterday's good work also the second day of testing for the Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro, held at Cheste's Ricardo Tormo circuit just outside Valencia, began wîth positive signs. Felipe Massa drove 25 laps, wîth the fastest in a time of 1.11.722. Talking to the technicians the Brazilian driver was extremely satisfied wîth the car's set up and the tyres' grip, although it has to be taken into account that the track's grip is higher than yesterday. Felipe drove several laps wearing a black carbon helmet: this is a test for a new type of helmet planned by Schubert for the Scuderia.

Maranello, 27th January 2010 – Enthusiasts worldwide will be able to discover, live tomorrow morning at www.ferrari.com, the name and look of the new Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro single-seater for the 2010 Formula 1 World Championship.

The car will be unveiled at 10.30 am at a ceremony in the New GT Assembly Line pavilion attended by the Scuderia Ferrari's sponsors and partners, and the world's media.

Stefano Domenicali, Fernando Alonso, Felipe Massa and Ferrari Chairman Luca di Montezemolo will all speak at the ceremony which is being broadcast live.

The single-seater's technical specifications and first official photographs will also be posted on www.ferrari.com. Enthusiasts can also stay in contact wîth the Scuderia through the Ferrari pages on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

Such is our web involvement now that for the first time the new single-seater will sport the www.ferrari.com logo alongside those of its sponsors.

F10's debut postponed

Maranello, 29 January 2010 - It should have been an appetiser for Felipe Massa: 100 kilometres to shoot some video's for the Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro's partners, but snow and ice here in Maranello - yesterday and today - didn't allow the Brazilian driver to go onto the track wîth the F10.


The decision to postpone the single-seater's debut on the track has been taken in the morning after a last check in Fiorano. The technicians are less worried about the state of the track's tarmac, but about the run-off areas covered in icy snow: so there is no point in taking any unnecessary risk and even maybe damaging parts of the car. Felipe will have to wait for another 72 hours until he can finally drive his new car on Monday, 1 February, on the 'Ricardo Tormo' circuit in Cheste just outside Valencia.
