Ferarri just unveiled their latest F1 Championship car for 2008, it’s the 54th so far, and changes totally the aerodynamics with Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa giving it the thumbs up. The main competitors will be McLaren and BMW, the pilots said, but they are confident that even if the car will be more complex to drive, to win.
2008 brings a lot of changes when it comes to safety, materials and others so everyone had to change.
Just hours, after Ferarri, McLaren unveiled their MP4-23 (Hamilton is 23 years old) which will be powered by the Mercedes-Benz FO 108V engine, based on the 2007 FO 108T that never failed in the last season. It’s a 2.4L 8-cylinder engine, that goes up to 19,000 rpm on the 7-speed sequential gearbox and the two pilots, Lewis Hamilton and Heikki Kovalainen are both excited about the car.
Formula 1 in 2008 will bring a nice addition. Night racing in Singapore.
Let’s wait for Sydney in March before we know who’s better.
