Ferrari are going into the F1 2019 season with a lost of zest. Change in team personnel has been made in order to make this a flawless season after heaps of mistakes last time round.
Binotto and team have been at work all winter and have reportedly come up with a manufacturing breakthrough. The breakthrough is supposed to help Ferrari close the gap on Mercedes and maybe even out do them on the race track.
TheJudge13 have reported that Ferrari have developed a new method of construction, one that is similar to 3D printing.
Now, 3D printing already exists in F1, as teams use it to prepare prototype parts of their cars.

However, Ferrari have taken it a notch higher with this new technique. According to report, Ferrari will now be able to make actual parts of their cars in 10x speed, giving them a massive edge over other teams.
Sheets of carbon fibre are heated using an autoclave oven in order to achieve this humongous feat.
This new technique will help Ferrari dish out parts quickly and bring in updates on race weekends.
Ferrari are currently working on getting the entire setup to their pit garage so as to speed up the process even further.
The news broke through when FIA technical delegate FIA Jo Bauer made an appearance at the crash test in the CSI laboratories of Bollate.
Ferrari are the first time to come up with his manufacturing strategy and hence an FIA technical delegate was necessary to have at the crash test.
Ferrari are going to release their 2019 livery on the 15th of february, and it is rumoured that the new livery is going to be dark red in colour and will have a matte finish.
