Nikolas Tombazis video interview // Ferrari share some behind the scenes insight and quotes

Published by Mr. C

I'm really enjoying some up the videos Ferrari have been putting up onto YouTube recently. While lacking in the production values of say Honda Racing TV, they do offer a unique perspective on the team. The latest video is an interview with chief designer Nikolas Tombazis.

Somehow the producers have achieved a retro vibe that's so convincing I had to double check it hadn't actually been filmed in the 70's, but it's definitely modern.

Mr. T (as only I call him) reveals some insightful information about the difficulties the team faced getting their new hollow nose through the mandatory crash test, as well as how the team are preparing for the 2009 regulations.

If you haven't seen it already, it's worth five minutes of your time, if only because I'm interested to hear if you think he's drunk on duty or not?

A case of old habits die hard? Is the absence of Todt beginning to tell already?

Anyhow, if you're interested, more video's are available for your viewing pleasure on the Ferrari World Channel.
