Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.

Reports from Italy are suggesting that Ferrari has signed an agreement with Austrian company AVL which is based in Graz.

AVL is the largest independent company in the world in regards the development of the internal combustion engine and a team of their specialists will be stationed in Maranello to contribute to the development of the six-cylinder turbo engine designed by Lorenzo Sassi.

AVL’s main contribution will be the study of the combustion chamber and its interaction with the piston – which are particularly sensitive areas for a Formula One engine. The benefits to the Austrian company are considerable – primarily its collaboration with a company as prestigious as Ferrari.
I am surprised Ferrari does not have a tie-up with the R&D departments of Fiat and Chrysler for resources and knowledge. Reminds me BMW in the late 90's when they created the motor sport division completely with in house engineers.

No offense meant, but I don't know how much Chrysler can offer ( I can not speak about Fiat). Chrysler withdrew from NASCAR in 2013 and from road racing last year. Current Chrysler products do not exhibit much engineering excellence.

CRF have been involved with the F1 team and the road car side for many years now.

I beg to differ. The 707bhp 6.2L supercharged engine in the SRT Hellcat Challenger and Charger is quite a piece of ICE engineering and has garnered universal praise from auto review publications.

I agree fully, the corvette ZR1 had figures much the same 6 years ago. I dont know what kind of R&D Chrysler has for Ferrari considering their halo car is still using a truck engine designed in the 70s..

I am afraid I agree with you.

Anyhow Ferrari needed this to at least have a chance to begin rebuilding.

I was wondering some kind of questions about the new dynamic simulator that has been installed at the scuderia (the 40 millions € one).
How it's going to simulate the vertical and lateral forces? I mean, if you have a 5g corner, how the hell are they going to put that force on a bench?
If they wanna see how the tires behave..

That's certainly an interesting one, having in mind they will now have JEV, who has previous experience with one of the best simulators on the grid. Before that Ferrari were using Dalara's one, built by Moog.

I have emailed the press office to get more info, and I shall update the thread if something interesting comes out. I suppose, however, that media will be mailed with some data sheets upon car's launch.
