360 with personalised engine...colors...  
 


So you finaly bought your Ferrari. A 360 Modena. And you are very happy with your black beauty. But...you don't like the redheads in the engine. You like yellow more. So...just paint them yellow. It's your car, no?
IMHO it's not an improvement...but everybody may have his own opinion about that! :)

Ferrari with mid-wing  
 
The Ferrari F2004 had yesterday and today at Imola a new wing. Not the expected frontwing, but a little wing at the engine cover, a so called mid-wing. This system was used in 1995 by McLaren. Later Jordan and Toyota also used it.
Barrichello drove already yesterday with the wing, and today Schumacher also drove with it. Today Ferrari was for the first time competing with other teams at the track. They were not the fastest, but that can also be because the test session was shortly stopped because of snowfall.
The fastest time of the day was set by Ralf Schumacher in his Williams: 1.21.869 (57 laps). Michael set the 2nd time, 1:21.923 in 32 laps. Third was Barrichello (1.22.566, 27 laps) in the old F2003GA and Coulthard was 4th in the McLaren (1.23.198, 40 laps). Toyota was also on the track with 1.25.581 for daMatta and 1.27.001 for Panis.

He would have been 106...  
 
Today, 106 years ago, in Modena, Italie, Enzo Ferrari saw the world for the first time. Februari 18th 1898 was his day of birth! (or was it Februari 20th?) Nobody knows that for sure...even Enzo didn't want to solve the mystery (or he also didn't know...).

Anyway...Salute to Enzo!

On the picture a very small selection of the Schumacher paintings. Two of them are already sold. The one of Michael's face is still for sale!

Interesting...but strange  
 
Everytime I see new rebodies of Ferraris on the internet. I find them strange, not really attractive, but they are part of the history and legend of Ferrari...so I do find them very interesting.
This is a rebody of a a 365 GT/4 2+2 by Felber of Switzerland. It was called Ferrari Croisette and still survives in Switzerland.

After a year of absence is Luciano Burti back as testdriver with Ferrari. The driver will take over the duties from Felipe Massa, who will drive for Sauber this season.
"I will test for Ferrari on a parttime base", confirmed Burti. The contract is parttime because Ferrari can also use the Sauber-drivers Fisichella en Massa for testing. "This is a great oportunity for me and I will do everything I can to help the team!"

Both as a person and as a driver, he very much contributes to our team's goals and objectives. He is fast and a pleasure to work with. And, having won the FIA championship in a Ferrari 550 last year, he of course brings a lot of highly relevant experience to the team."

330 Shooting Break  
 
A number of 330 GT's were either manufactured or re-bodied when nearly new with coachwork to unique designs by some of Italy's most famous carrozzeria. Naturally, Pininfarina produced a superb body at the request of Prince Bernhard from the Netherlands who had chassis 6267 GT fitted with a body eminently comparable to Ferrari's exclusive 500 Superfast. Another well-known personality commissioned Vignale to design what is now known to have been the last Ferrari bodied by this carrozzeria. Indeed, 330 GT chassis 7963 GT was re-bodied to an absolutely beautiful Shooting Break / Station Wagon configuration for NART impresario Luigi Chinetti.

6th at 24h of Daytona  
 
The no. 73 Red Bull BE Racing 360 Modena GT became 6th today at the 24 hour of Daytona. He was 3rd in his class. Two other Ferraris were #94 GT Mastercar / Ferrari 360GT who became 32nd and the #93 GT Mastercar / Ferrari 360GT which became 36th. The only other Ferrari at Daytona, #11 GT JMB Racing USA / Ferrari 360GT became 52nd (OUT).
Sad that there were no 575 GTCs racing at Daytona!
