2013 F1 cars - more of the same?

FOCUS TO BE SPLIT IN 2013: Ferrari team principle Stefano Domenicali insists there will be no major changes to its 2013 F1 car other than exhuast alterations.

Ferrari's new car will look similar to the 2012 model, team boss Stefano Domenicali has admitted.

In fact it appears to be the trend in Formula 1 through the 2013 season as teams focus on the transition to the radical new V6 engine rules for 2014.

Domenicali said said: "From an aesthetic point of view, it won't be very different from the 2012 car."


La Gazzetta dello Sport
quoted him as saying there are "interesting developments" in the exhaust area, while Ferrari is now pushing "the boundary of the regulations."

Domenicali admitted, the 2013 contender will be arguably tougher than ever before: "Since the budgets and manpower are limited by the rules, this is a very delicate task."

He said the team  will simultaneously focus on winning the 2013 world championship with a 2012-like set of rules, and prepare for the all-new turbo era.

"I'm also assuming that some teams in the summer of 2013 will abandon the development of their (2013) project or severely restrict it, if the title is out of reach.

"Since I assume that we will be fighting for the title, this is not a possibility for us," said Domenicali.
