Ferrari's simulation model

I understand that Ferrari have the best simulation model around, and all their set ups are derived from this. I don't believe they ever change their set up much at the track.

Also, McLaren have a simulation that can run like a "driving game" and actually be driven. It computes as it goes along.

Does anyone have any more detailed information about these simulations?

ubrben has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!

I'd say that's 90% PR. I don't doubt that they have a good simulation, but to derive all the setup from it isn't likely. The baseline setup definitely (as with all teams) but they don't have Mr Brawn, Mr Todt, et al on the pitwall purely for the good of their health.

As for info on simulators. They're probably going to fall into two main categories - quasi-static lap time simulation and transient multi-body simulations.

The best commercial quasi-static sims are RaceSim http://www.datas-ltd.com and probably Aerolap http://ansibledesign.com/index.htm. Most teams will probably have in-house equivalents.

Multibody-wise you have ADAMS - www.mscsoftware.com or DADS, SimPack, etc.

I will have to pass on the driving sims. But I suspect they'll be multibody based but with simplified models to allow realtime operation. ADAMS has a realtime module for ADAMS/Car, which will be on their website.

I know that one current F1 team uses Adams and the inputs include the forces fed into the steering and pedal by the driver, this helps represent the differing driving styles....

I have no doubt ferrari have got great simulation tools, I dount they are that far ahead of the feild in relative terms. Alot of set up is predicted by simulation, but the process of tunign the car to the prevailing track conditions is reqiured to make the most of the car.
