A radical nose cone for Ferrari?

There are several rumours circulating in the media that Ferrari could be debuting a radical new part on their F2008 at the Bahrain Grand Prix next month.

During winter testing, there were rumours that Ferrari were going to reveal a nose cone with an opening in the upper front of the F2008 s nose cone, approximately where the Bridgestone B current sits. During the winter period, Red Bull s technical director Geoff Willis theorized that doing this to the nose would probably “use the central part of the front wing in a better way.”

Spanish newspaper Diario AS believes that the new nose cone will be on show either at the third race of the season in Bahrain, or possibly during the following race in Spain.
