Ferrari simulator to be best in F1

Ferrari simulator to be best in F1
Fri 07 Dec, 08:53 AM

Ferrari is hard at work on a new Formula One simulator, according to reports.

The sports daily Marca claims that Marc Gene is at the forefront of the high-tech equipment's development, and that his test at Jerez this week was almost exclusively centred on collecting information for the simulator.

McLaren's top secret state-of-the-art simulator is known as being currently the best among F1 teams, and it took much of the credit for Lewis Hamilton's sensational rookie season in 2007.

Red Bull was believed to be building a similar unit and software for its own factory.

But Marca believes that Ferrari's new simulator will be superior to all others in F1, following more than 18 months of development led by Felipe Massa's former race engineer Gabriele Delli Colli.

Gene, Ferrari's secondary test driver, commented that the simulator is already operating at an advanced level.

"I haven't tested like this for nearly a year and I should be a lot more rusty," the Spaniard said at Jerez earlier this week, "but I am only a half or second or so away from Raikkonen.

"This is thanks to the simulator, which allows you to keep pace. It is a very big help," he added.
