First of all let me wish you a Happy New Year!
Hoping that you were also able to relax and recharge your batteries for the New Year, just like the one, who is writing these lines did.
The New Year has many new and interesting things and exciting challenges waiting for us.
Obviously we are starting with the F2008, which had its first shakedown in the morning and has the task to confirm the Drivers' and Constructors' World Championship titles, gained in the last season.
Numerous changes happen in the rules for the new season, starting with the elimination of the cars' traction control. Thus the cards will be shuffled anew, as President Montezemolo declared at the press conference in the morning, where he appeared in good form.
Apart from the fog at the circuit, which conditioned the outing of the car in the morning, the F2008 seems to be a car perfectly set up down to the smallest detail, especially as far as the aerodynamics are concerned, which has been cured by the engineers with particular attention. Logically the most important evolutions will happen over the season, as much as the most significant technical solutions. The most beautiful part of the car is, as usual, the form of this newly born single-seater.
