Vettel: Ferrari completely fired up

  Vettel: Ferrari completely fired up Sebastian Vettel has every belief that Ferrari will "dig deep" in the off-season as they prepare to challenge Mercedes for the 2018 titles. Although Vettel led throughout the opening half of the 2017 season, he ultimately lost the title to Lewis Hamilton after a wretched second half.Driver errors coupled with reliability problems and a lack of pace at F1's high speed circuits meant for the first time in his career, Vettel was unable to wrap up the title despite leading the standings.The German, though, is confident that Ferrari have learned lessons that they can put towards a stronger 2018 challenge.

It’s no secret Ferrari is working on a high-performance version of its 488 supercar and new information leaked online has provided us with the first details of the upcoming model.

The leaked images show a slideshow presentation titled ‘New V8 Sport Special Series’, which shows that a hardcore, race-derived Ferrari 488 is in Maranello’s pipeline; it follows in the footsteps of the 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia and 458 Speciale. Although the images are low-resolution the slideshow clearly states that this race-bred 488 ‘Sport Special Series’ will feature the most powerful V8 engine in Ferrari’s history.

Indeed, Marchionne did take a Tesla out for a spin once, only to snidely remark, “this is not Ferrari.

In the past few weeks, more details have been leaked surrounding Ferrari ’s hardcore 488 Special Sport Series – or what some have called the 488 GTO. Official CARB documents from earlier in the month officially revealed the rare Prancing Horse’s identity

There’s been some excitement in the supercar world this week, notably for those who follow the house of the Prancing Horse. We’re talking about the upcoming Ferrari 488 Special Sport Series , which was the subject of not one but two significant leaks this week.

The car will feature a suite of racing technology such as a ‘race’ gearshift, an ‘extremely’ direct steering ratio and all-new Michelin Sport Cup 2 tyres, along with a front S-duct and a rear diffuser derived from the 488 GTE Le Mans car. The new aero package is claimed to be 20 per cent more aerodynamically efficient than the standard 488. New 20-inch alloy wheels will also be fitted, which are 40 per cent lighter than the wheels fitted on the base model.

Based on the images, carbon fibre is the order of the day, the slides claiming that Ferrari’s performance 488 has the ‘highest utilisation of carbon fibre on a range car’. Both front and rear bumpers and the bonnet are made of carbon fibre, as is the active rear spoiler and interior dashboard. Interior luxuries are gone – even the glovebox has been thrown out – while the standard road car’s seats have been replacing by carbon fibre racing seats.

Vasseur ended Honda engine deal an hour into his Sauber role

  Vasseur ended Honda engine deal an hour into his Sauber role Sauber team principal Frederic Vasseur cancelled the engine deal with Honda for 2018 just an hour after joining the Formula 1 team. Honda had previously made a deal with Vasseur’s predecessor, Monisha Kaltenborn, but Vasseur felt it was too risky to go with the Japanese manufacturer after its tumultuous past three years supplying McLaren. “I joined on July 17 at 9am, and the meeting [about Honda] was at 10am,” Vasseur told Autosport. “For me it was important. It is never easy to change the engine supplier first, but Honda was not in very good shape. “Plus, and probably most important for me, we were linked to McLaren for the gearbox with absolutely no internal resources to do our own one. “I was convinced, as I had some contacts at McLaren, that they would do their best to leave [Honda]. So I could not be in a position to risk that. “Imagine today if I had to request the Honda gearbox from McLaren? It would be an absolute nightmare. “Being in the process of working on our 2018 car, we were not able to postpone the decision.” Cancelling the deal to become Honda’s second F1 team allowed Vasseur to negotiate a new deal to continue with Ferrari, which concluded in Sauber receiving current-specification engines from the team and title sponsorship from Ferrari sister-brand Alfa Romeo in 2018. Sauber has also signed Ferrari protégée and reigning Formula 2 champion Charles Leclerc as part of the strengthened relationship between the two teams.

There’s a lot of speculation claiming that the performance 488 will bear the famous GTO badge. In the past, the GTO branding has only appeared on Ferraris every two or three decades and as Ferrari released the 599 GTO in 2010, it may be too soon for a new GTO to be let off the leash by the Italian marque. Ferrari insiders also suggest that a '488 GTO' is unlikely so this flagship version seems set to carry another name.
