The parade of Formula 1 debuts continues. Fresh off the unveilings of the McLaren and Lotus entries, Scuderia Ferrari took the wraps off of the 2013 F138. The name denotes the year, along with the last season for the team’s V-8 powerplant.
The 2.4-liter engine is an evolution of last year’s V-8, and promises improved reliability over last year’s entry. Considering Ferrari’s only retirements last season were due to accident damage, we aren’t really sure how much more reliable this engine can get.
Like last season, Ferrari’s entry will be driven by Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa. Alonso had a promising 2012, only losing out in the World Driver’s Championship to Sebastian Vettel during the last race. Massa, meanwhile, improved steadily but still only managed to net two podiums.
