In latest issue of Race Engine Technology I was looking at a picture of the Ferrari car and its team from 2008, which at that time included Kimi. My point however is that the same slot that is shown in that 2008 Ferrari, is the same slot that is shown in Jonathan's 2012 Ferrari post .

If anyone wants to check it out the 2008 picture is on page 16 of the current (Feb 2012) issue of RET.
Looking at the Ferrari F12, there's no apparent slot in the nose. If they have one, I'm assuming it's somewhere under the nose, above the front wing. Maybe some trickiness going on there.

So I don't pay much attention to what team members say because I think they try to hide information, but after testing, the Ferrari looks maybe a bit questionable. Observers trackside were saying it would change characteristics noticeably over long runs. I hope it gets better for Australia.
