Eccola, c'e l'abbiamo la spiegazione!

Post by darwin dali »

Here we go: the explanation for Ferrari's demise! (Sorry, just watched an Italian comedy;-)

Three key losses contributed to the demise of Ferrari's dominance in Formula One.

That is the claim of Technical Director Ross Brawn, who referred to the past defections of Nicholas Tombazis, James Allison and Antonia Terzi in the Frankfurter Allgemeinen Zeitung newspaper.

The Briton denied that the rise of rivals had more to do with Ferrari's use of only a single wind tunnel, while some others run with two. Instead, he reckons the key defectors took Ferrari's aerodynamic 'secrets' to chasing teams.

Brawn said: “It meant that our competitors put more into the area of aerodynamics and closed the gap in that way.”

But does that mean Brawn concedes Ferrari have already reached the point where their aero package can no longer improve?
