What is so radical about the new Ferrari?
Sources within Ferrari are talking about an integrated engine and gearbox unit which will help the team to lower the center of gravity and reduce weight. While this can be tested so that it is reliable for the start of the year there are likely to be questions about the practicality of such a system.
Modern F1 teams however have so many staff at races that this should not be a problem as changing an engine and changing a gearbox are both fairly rapid procedures these days.
