Ferrari Unveils New F2012 Formula 1 Car

Ferrari released the first picture of its F2012 F1 car for the new season. And It too suffers from the “ugly nose” syndrome.

But don’t blame Ferrari for that, it’s the new Formula regulations that made manufacturers to lower the front-end. It kinda looks like old F1 cars.

Looks don’t really matter. Ferrari needs to make sure the car will perform. To do see they’ve been busy with some of the technical bits, such as the position of the exhausts, suspension settings and electronic control units. Development of a Formula 1 car is a dynamic process though and it continues throughout the season.

Check out the car’s technical specs below…
