Another windtunnel for Ferrari?

The talk at the launch of the new BMW Sauber supercomputer was that Ferrari will soon begin work on a second windtunnel to complement the current facility at Maranello. The team has been using the same windtunnel for some years and as others have expanded their aerodynamic capabilities, Ferrari has had to rely on doing the job better than the opposition - and that leaves open the possibility of problems and other teams move to round the clock running with two windtunnels - not to mention impressive computing power to study elements of development before they are ever tried in a windtunnel environment.
