Ferrari said they would be collecting telemetry data from their track-meets, the owner's opinion's are only part of the "research project."

Every driver has his own habits. You can't commit researchement judging only from one driver's telemetry data. You will need several drivers to receive authentic information.

sure, but Ferrari has "some" experience with telemetric data from different drivers...

Of course, but the program won't be complex then

This is not a streetcar, or a car that will be regularily seen by the public. So why?

As far as any race/track car is (read: should be) concerned: Function > Asthetics

Is this like a series development-mule that will result in a better F60(70?) one day? So the clients are paying to do what employees would've done previously?

I probably have it all wrong, but even if that is the case, it's pretty cool.
it is, but it was stated in the press text back in 2005 and made it even more desirable for the clients

it's not like that 30 people bought these cars two years ago and it was last time ferrari people met them. you can't get out your ferrari on a track without a group of 15 ferrari technicans, simply because noone apart from them knows how to start the engine and set it up. FXX are an object of very complex project, which aim is to develop highest-performance supercar, thus during last two years and more than 30,000 it's reasonable to offer an upgrade packet exploiting what they've come up with yet.

to my logic this upgrade will be added to cars that are commonly used during track events or at least have contact with ferrari management, like benny caiola's car which took part in FXX event for the first time just this weekend. that should be about 24 cars.

i see in this also additional punishment for those who decided to sell the cars on their own, which is against the agreement owners were signing when taking up FXX project

As far as I know, many are already on board. The FXX owners who are signed up to FChat seem to be giving hints that they're doing it. And I'm sure even Schumacher will do it.

Punishment? I don't think that's the least of your worries.

If you need an army of technicians to start the car, selling the FXX and breaking the contract is going to make you find your own team of technicians to start, service and look after the car.

Have fun looking for non-Ferrari technicians to start the car.

I'm sure McLaren has some classified information in their HQ somewhere.

Don't you count a human factor? Or do I underestimate the possibilities of telemetry?
