Ferrari using Toyota's wind-tunnel Ferrari has revealed that it has been using Toyota's wind-tunnel to help with the development of its new Formula 1 car.
Speaking about the decision to use Toyota's wind-tunnel, Ferrari technical director Aldo Costa said: "There are some FOTA regulation restrictions in terms of expense - which is the cost for the framework, the number of people working in the team, the number of hours spent in the wind tunnel, and also the power of the server for the CFD.
"These are the four restrictions and the last two are connected - so it is up to the team how to spend money, how to employ people and where to work.
"We therefore decided to really focus on the work of the wind tunnel, and one wind tunnel was not enough - we needed one and a little bit more.
"The Toyota tunnel is one of the commercial tunnels that is more state-of-the-art, and that is why we have selected it."
