Ferrari at "Operation Australia"

Here we are. Only a few days left until the first, eagerly awaited Grand Prix of the season. Saturday afternoon in the qualifying and then on Sunday at the race at Melbourne's Albert Park the F138 will compare itself with its ten competitors under race-conditions to discover what the real situation is.

The last, who left Maranello in the direction of Australia, were Stefano Domenicali and the head technicians from the Scuderia, while the rest of the Team is already at work at the track to set up the box and the infrastructure, necessary for a flawless workflow during the race weekend. Meanwhile the two drivers arrived in Australia, too: Fernando from Europe and Felipe from Brazil. At the moment they are getting used to the Australian climate and the time difference.

The last hours in Maranello were used to meet Ferrari Chairman Luca di Montezemolo to talk about the current technologial situation in the preparations and the development programme in the short and medium term. The objective for Melbourne is clear: fighting for a place on the podium while showing that the gap to the top has been significantly closed.
