MARANELLO, Italy - Rory Byrne, Ferrari's legendary former chief designer, was at the launch of the team's 2013 car at Maranello on Friday.

He told Auto Motor und Sport he was "working full steam" on the Italian team's project  for the 2014 car which will be powered by the all-new turbo V6 rules.

"It's a nice car," the South African - referring to the newly-launched F138 - laughed, "but it's all child's play compared to what awaits us in 2014."

'WAITING FOR NEWEY'

Until then, Ferrari has the 2013 title to win after a five-year championship drought and boss Stefano Domenicali confirmed that his designers had adopted some "extreme solutions" to compete with Red Bull.
