"Ferrari wisely mounts its paddles on the column" ??

I hesitate to question the gurus at Ferrari, but this doesn't sound like a good idea. Yes, you can't turn a street car lock to lock with 1 turn, but I, like every tracker I know drives almost exclusively 9&3 on my street car. At Thunderhill, it's 100% 9&3. It would be a nuisance to drive 9&3 and have to let go of the wheel to grab a column mounted paddle and it would be dangerous to shuffle-shift.

Granted, mid turn shifts are not all that common, but if we're only shifting in a straightline, then the whole point is moot and it makes no sense to relocate the paddles to the column anyway. Maybe I'd like it if I was ever rich enough to try it.
