Ferrari will use their infamous pit stop traffic lights once again in 2010.
The team has developed a new “traffic light” system, more sophisticated and safer than the one used previously. Therefore this is an additional option for releasing a driver back into the race.
Massa’s early exit from the pits with his refuelling hose still attached cost him a potential win at Singapore and could have changed the outcome of the championship. Ferrari suspended use of the lights after the blunder and brought back a traditional lollipop.
Like Renault, Ferrari are also using special wheel nuts to speed up their tyre changes, which are expected to take less than three seconds in 2010 now that in-race refuelling has been banned.
