Ferrari F2008 launch tomorrow. Launch season begins!

The first car of the new season is launched tomorrow and, if you can't wait any longer, here are some magnificent teasers.

http://motorsport.com/photos/select....Preview&Y=2008

Already I can see that the car has a much shorter wheelbase than last year and incorporates many radical new features.

Mclaren's launch is a day after Ferrari. Ample time for them to copy the entire Ferrari design and incorporate into their own. Ban them now.

Rumour has it that the 2008 McLaren is a mixture of Toyota's recent efforts.It was the only way they could convince the FIA that they had no 'idea(s)' at all.

They have copied my rural mail box design! It is designed with wings to deflect the snow from the snowplow. I must protest to Mad Max.

Yep.Something that McLaren didn't need to copy.

Maybe it's got some very slight mods to it,but probably not enough to make it sound like this.

Ferrari have set up a website dedicated to this years F1 machine. Im assuming that all the launch information/photos etc, will be shown on the website as and when they are available.

The address is http://www.f2008.it/

Currently the page is blank.

Doesn't look that much different,but then it is only an airbox.Even so,I bet they've spent many a dollar and hour on it.
