Ferrari F10 - Technical Specifications

A couple of hours ago, Ferrari Formula One Team unveiled the first pictures of their 2010 challenger on their official website. This was practically the first team in F1 to show real pictures of their new car to their fans, as Mercedes GP's launch earlier this week included only their new livery, painted on their 2009 machine. That being said, Ferrari also disclosed the technical specifications of their new car. While the car obviously benefits from some new aerodynamic cues as compared to its F60 predecessor, the majority of the technical specifications have remained the same. However, two changes are quite visible. Obviously, due to the refueling ban introduced by the International Automobile Federation (FIA) for the 2010 season, the new Ferrari F10 features a larger fuel tank. Ferrari is yet to reveal the exact dimensions of its new fuel tank, but it's quite clear it is larger as compared to 2009, as it needs to “accommodate” more fuel during the 2010 races. Additionally, even though the teams decided not to use the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) for the 2010 season, the weight limit of the car remained as changed by the FIA during the 2009 season, meaning a maximum 620 kg (including the driver and the extra fuel). Until last year, the overall weight of the car + driver and lubricants was 605. The change for 2010 may also be attributed to the refueling ban. During the 2010 season of Formula One, Ferrari will continue its fuel & oil partnership with Shell. But here are the overall specifications of the F10, as presented by Ferrari on their official website. Chassis
