Ferrari not joining short nose camp

Ferrari has opted against joining the 'short nosed' camp on the 2015 grid.

Mercedes and Williams have designed their 2015 aerodynamic concepts around an ultra-short nose, and now Red Bull is hoping to make up ground from Barcelonan onwards with perhaps the most radical solution to date.

Ferrari's SF15-T, however, has a notably long front section, and according to Italy's Autosprint, a major aerodynamic upgrade for Barcelona does not include a nose-job.

"We will not see a shortened nose," reported correspondent Roberto Chinchero, "despite the evaluations done by all the teams in the championship."

He explained that both Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen have independently given "positive feedback" about the long-nose solution, causing engineers and designers at Maranello to "leave things as they are".
