Ferrari to make late debut
29 November 2004 –
Next season might be five grands prix in before a new Ferrari car makes its debut, chief designer Rory Byrne revealed.
The South African veteran said F2005 will appear on the test track in late February. He told La Gazzetta dello Sport: "We want to go deeper into research and design."
Significant rule changes next year mean that the Melbourne-spec F2004 will be heavily modified. Byrne said the next red car will then be an 'evolutionary' - but major - step of the 2002/2003/2004 mould.
