    “Ferrari – The snow is faster than you, do you understand?”

    It has heavily snowed here in Italy for the past two days. Today (in Milan at least) it has stopped, but before the snow melts a few days will pass, and only if the temperatures rise (the forecasts say the opposite will happen, bringing dangerous ice sheets everywhere.

    The web site F1-Direct ( close to the Scuderia ) suggests that it will have pictures of the new Ferrari at 1900h UK time tonight.

    Well I’ve been building up all week to tomorrow, I’m kinda disappointed. At least there’ll be some photos…

    The real reason for the cancellation is that the they ran out of colors to identify the new Pirelli studded snow and ice tire.

    Scarlet on white would have looked pretty! Can’t wait for the photos…

  8. When I saw the heading, I immediately though that Ferrari is doing a rush job to change their Catherham-like ducknose into something more like McLaren’s :-). But I am willing to concede that snow could be a reason too.
