In stark contrast to the sunshine that awaits the world of Formula One in Melbourne in a few days time. Maranello snow provided the backdrop to the unveiling of the car that will carry Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro's hopes of retaining the Constructors' and Drivers' Championship titles this year. The F2005 will not be making the trip to Australia, as Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello will start the year at the wheel of the F2004 M, the modified version of last year's car.

There were three Ferrari 360 models entered in the 43rd edition of the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, two modified Challenge cars and a 360 GT, all modified to meet the new 2005 GT group regulations for this Grand Am series. They had though opposition in their class, mainly in the form of an armada of Porsche GT3 Cup models that dominated the GT class entry in both qualifying and the race.

Mexico's Carrera Panamericana is considered to have been the world's most dangerous open road speed contests, once racing resumed following World War II.
Riskier than the resurrected Mille Miglia, the Targa Florio and the Tour of Sicily, and even Le Mans or Spa, it only ran for five years, 1950 through 1954, a casualty of the death toll and numbers of injured it left in its wake.

The power behind Ferrari's rise to prominence in the 1950s, eventually becoming the world's greatest manufacturer of sporting and racing cars, came from the company's great multi-displacement V-12 engines, although in recent years the V-10 has done alright for itself thanks to Michael Schumacher. But there was a time when it looked as if Ferrari's future might depend on twin cam inline four cylinder engines using eight spark plugs.
