Ferrari point-man Michael Schumacher was choppered in to take the F1 team's newest car for its introductory burn around the Fiorino track, ahead of its official launch in Mugello next Tuesday. Gone is the 3.0-liter V10 that once powered the Scuderia's ride in favor of a new 2.4-liter V8 built to new F1 regulations set to reduce speeds and costs. Not much has been revealed about the new car, which will likely have little in common with the F2005 V10 car, other than that which F1 fans already know: It better be a damn sight better than last year's car or another round of beatings will further damage the superteam's rep. Talk amongst yourselves.
