Ferrari's new simulator is ready to go and it also has a new home, in between the main office of the Gestione Sportiva and the Fiorano Track.
Simulators have become very important in modern F1, as Alexander Albon told RacingNews365.com in June, so Ferrari have decided to build a new model as they look to move further up the grid to challenge for regular F1 victories.
"Simulation and digital technology are going to play an ever more important role in the development of a Formula 1 car," said Ferrari's head of supply chain Gianmaria Fulgenzi.
"We believe we have made the best possible choice, focusing on creating a tool that will enable us to make a generational leap in this sector."
In the coming weeks, calibration work will be carried out and in September work will be well underway to support Ferrari's 2022 machine with new technical regulations coming to the sport.
The current simulator will still be used for development work on this year's car and to prepare for race weekends. Young drivers from the Ferrari Driver Academy will continue to use the simulator too.
Ferrari's new simulator, which took two years to complete, is absolutely at the cutting edge in this field and reproduces in a 360 degree environment, the lowest latency and the widest bandwidth of anything currently on the market.
It is based on a completely new concept the result of a collaboration between Scuderia Ferrari and Dynisma, a UK-based company headed up by former Ferrari engineer Ashley Warne. It has been produced exclusively for the Maranello team.
