The Italian experiment ends at Ferrari

This week sees the annual wrooom! event which sees Ferrari and Ducati team up to launch their 2012 season, however this year the traditional unvieling of the Ducati is absent. However it is interesting to note that Ferrai have announced two new appointments to their technical team. The first is former Bridgestone Technical Director, Hirohide Hamashima who is help the scuderia with understanding tyre issues which plagued the 2011 challenger and the second is Steve Clark from Mercedes to become track engineer. It is a further move away from the national flavour the team took on post Ross Brawn and sees them returning to hiring internationally reconised personel.

Yesterday at wrooom! we saw the Ducati riders in focus with Rossi admitting a title challenge is still unlikely this year. Today we expect Luca Montezemelo to be disliking the new engines and wanting 3rd cars.
