The car was provided by the GP2 organization and earlier speculation said it was a super nova team car.
Read the news at the top of the thread page. :wink:

How refreshing.
What are mumbling about? Article 18 of the F1Technical Sporting Code clearly states that "All F1 Teams are free to lie, cheat and steal, strongly recommended though to avoid getting caught and then lying about it more than once, or in some exceptional circumstances twice. Except Ferrari. If such circumstances arise as Ferrari should get involved in anything that might be considered irregular by any number of forum members, a shitstorm should and will be unleashed."
There are some rumors that this was dubbed "The I*$*matron Syndrome".

Doesn't help that the BBC are reporting it as an F1 test ...

Are Ferrari asleep? They should've run Alonso and/or Massa in a F2008 instead of Rossi, or even alongside him.

That way Schumacher will have less of an advantage regarding recent seat time.

Schumi in Mercedes overalls...it is too heavy for me.Still can't believe how easily he can separate his ways with Ferrari.

Anyway still no lap times or anything else about his pace.Can anyone translate what he said in video 2 please?

The Ferrari he has left is an empty shell of a team compared to before. Not like he was been a big help on the wall, just showing face, and making Kimi screw up.

It might have been a messy breakup behind the scenes, but that will take years to come to the surface, if at all.

Domenicali: "We have seen some fans not appreciate Michael's choice. But we should not forget history, what Michael has done with Ferrari, just as we should not forget what Ferrari has done for Michael. Now we turn the page it is a further stimulus for us that we feel within ourselves. We have to show - also to Michael - that this is the strongest team. It's a constructive stimulus, a greater will to show that we can win.

It was difficult to see Michael with his helmet on elsewhere, some wound always remains."

I like the traditional design
I think, replace the white with silver, delete Marlboro and replace with Petronas

add 7 stars for WDC

not sure which other personal sponsors will be added. Theres that german bank, possibly henkel as well. Merc reached a settlement with them and it appears they are still keen on buying some advertising space on the car and michaels overal's
