The new year builds on the success of the old

This year's presentation of Ferrari's F1 car had a unique character: the F2001, unlike the F1-2000 and all its predecessors since 1981, was not a challenger, was not the carrier of increadingly frayed dreams, but a title defender, the first to carry the number one, the coveted 'numero uno', since Jody Scheckter's mount in 1980. Thus the mood, in contrast to the nervous smiles and pressures all too evident in previous years, was one of bullish confidence, and a strong and general desire to confirm and defend the title, as outlined by team principal Jean Todt.

15 A detailed look at the new Ferari for 2001
Ferrari F2001

In comparing last year's car, the F1-2000, with the new F2001 of this year, you can immediately see the different philosophies of the designs, which start right from the nose. Last year, Ferrari remained with the concept of the high nose, but now it has abondoned that style and the nose of the F2001 droops markedly. The new chassis overall is also interesting; it is quite tall, taller even than last year's car.

28 Ferrari 360 Spider - Your staff contemplates
Some thoughts, quite random, on Ferrari's newest toy, and on being a convertible

More difficult than it would at first appear - taking the top off a coupe or berlinetta an making it look good, not only with the top completely off but also with the new soft top in place. Ferrari and Pininfarina appear to have done the dead successfully.

48 Ferrari wins Sport Class in 2001 Tour Auto

The Tour Auto is not easy, covering hundreds of miles through France, with special competitions along the way at various race tracks. It is fiercely contested, and not only by Ferraris. To win a category is exceptional and this year a Ferrari has done it. The Ferrari 275 GTB/4, s/n 10525, of Martin Sucari and Jose Luis Celada, both from Argentina, won the "Sport" class, which is in essence the rally class.
