Maranello | 7 May 2020

Speed is a crucial ingredient for final success in the world of competition. Just as it is essential on the track, during pit stops, it also plays a vital role in the design phase. It allows us to evaluate more scenarios in the concept phases for faster development of solutions to be used during a race.

Feverish activity takes place at circuits around the world and in the technical department of Ferrari Competizioni GT which analyses and studies the requests and feedback received from drivers and engineers to implement changes that can yield a competitive advantage or boost a car’s reliability. Whether a design starts from a blank sheet of paper or evolves an existing vehicle, the world of virtual simulation plays an increasingly important and decisive role. It enables a significant reduction in development time and costs, and the testing of multiple solutions and configurations.
