    Ferrari head of engine testing has left. Place is being taken by the man who has been managing Rubens engines. Interesting...................

    i dont think it will be that much of a blow to Ferrari since Paolo Marinelli Is the true brains behind the engines that Ferrari F1 uses.

    Rob could you imagine putting Dr.Mario Theissen(BMW)Denis Chevrier(RENAULT)Luca Marmorini(TOYOTA)Paolo Martinelli(FERRARI)
    working together on an F1 engine,they could be in my team all day thank you,

    You got my vote there. One thing to remember the engineer that created Renaults wide angle engine is now at Ferrari working on Road car engines. i am sure that he is having a few disscussions with Paolo in the lunch room.

    I would take any of those you have listed and have them design and bulid myself a 4 stroke engine for one of my dirt bikes any day.. :)

    I was thinking more in lines of a 250cc single with F1 tech i figure about 60 + HP :) Might look a bit funny with my fat butt pulling a holeshot at a 125 national :D Just image a dirt bike reving out to 18,000 RPM ;)

    It was taken at the Gauthie Classic in Scottsdale, AZ this past October. Jag was the main sponsor of the event so they had the car on display. About the only interesting thing there other than the Ferrari concorsso around the corner :)
