F1: Ferrari uncover new race car
F138 is 'evolution' of its predecessor01 February, 15:35
The Italian glamour team described the car as an "evolution" of its predecessor, the F2012 with which Fernando Alonso came second in the drivers' championship, rather than a radical departure from it.
"Every single part has been revised in order to maximise performance, while maintaining all the characteristics which were the basis of last season's extraordinary reliability," Ferrari said. Ferrari have retained the front and rear pull-rod suspension set-up introduced last year, refining it for maximum aerodynamic advantage.
The car's bodywork elements have been redesigned to allow for changes to the positioning and layout of the exhausts.
The rear of the new car is much narrower and more tapered than in the F2012.
