“My dream of a Ferrari drive in 1992 turned into a nightmare,” says Ivan Capelli (above). “The twin-floor car was meant to generate more airflow to the rear and increase downforce, but it didn’t work. Its weight caused extra roll which upset its dynamics.
“Mechanically, the front and rear suspension didn’t have the right characteristics for each other. The only potentially good thing about the car was the engine, but the bodywork around it was so tight that it couldn’t get rid of the heat build-up in a race, which cost us power and reliability.
“As the new guy, I had no voice in the middle of the chaos. It was made worse by the team personnel changing constantly and new roles being created all the time. I wasn’t part of it.
“Not a nice experience at all.” MH
