TopGear.com.ph Ferrari unveils F10 Formula One 2010 race car

Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro has unveiled the F10, the Prancing Horse team's contender for the 2010 Formula One season.

"This is a very emotional moment I'm confronting with anticipation, but I won't know where we stand before the Saturday qualifying of Bahrain. The team worked with determination and unity I haven't seen for a long time," said Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo during the January 28 launch.

The technicians behind the F10 said they have analyzed the reasons why the Ferrari race car was not "strong enough" in 2009 when Scuderia Ferrari finished fourth.

"The development data regarding aerodynamics, simulator and test stand makes us think that lots of development has been done," said Aldo Costa, technical director of the Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro team.

The technical team stopped developing Ferrari's F60 in the latter part of the 2009 season to start working on the F10 when hopes of the team's championship bid started to wane.

"Now we're trying to forget last year and concentrate on 2010. But the decision was strategic, agreed on by the technicians and Stefano Domenicali," Costa said.

Read on for the specs of the F10, which will be driven by Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso.
