” He also says the only major revision to the car was the 1998 engine which was much more durable thanks to its smaller valves and modified air filter.4 From car number 017 forward, the 1998 cars received the small-valve engine, a strengthened chassis and four-pages of numerous detail changes engineered by Ferrari themselves.

Ferrari F333 SP
Chief Designer Mauro Rioli and aerodynamicists Dialma Zinelli and Giorgio Camaschella designed the car as a widened F1 with a fully-enclosed, two-seat body.5 WSC regulations meant that the car had to be an open-top, flat-bottomed design with no ground-effect venturis and be powered by a 4.0-liter, unblown engine sourced from a production car.
This unit was inspired by the 3.5-liter F1 engine and reduced from 4.7 to 4.0-liters which gave a single cylinder displacement of 333 cc.
