Will switching to your own wind tunnel affect the new car?

Ferrari chief designer Nicolas Tombazis has admitted that the transition from the Toyota wind tunnel, which the team now uses back to its own, is very likely to have a major impact on the development of the new car. Let us recall that due to major problems with the inaccuracy of the data obtained from their own wind tunnel, the Italian team developed this year's car entirely in Toyota's wind tunnel in Cologne.

Nevertheless, sometime in October this year, Ferrari is expected to re-launch its own wind tunnel, which should be heavily updated and ready for use by then, but Tombazis said: "The transition between the wind tunnels will of course affect development, which race car for 2014. It would be ideal if you were already working in your own wind tunnel, but unfortunately this is not the case. Of course, this is not an ideal solution, but we need to make this transition for once. We decided that it was best to do it as soon as possible. "

Of course, not everything is as bad as it seems at first glance. Ferrari has invested heavily in the wind tunnel, which has been losing value in recent years. However, Nikolas likes to boast that with the new updates they will return to the standard of competitors: "We will strongly update the wind tunnel, unfortunately we are forced to use another one during this time, but after the updates we will be at the highest possible level again."
