Ferrari Set For A Late January Launch
Ferrari have announced that they will launch their new F1 car in the final week of January just before the first pre-season test, which starts on the 1st February in Valencia. Although the majority of the teams are expected to unveil their 2011 cars in Valencia. It is believed that Ferrari will follow tradition and reveal their new car at Maranello once again. The Italian team have yet to confirm an actual date for the launch, however the 2011 chassis did already pass a series of mandatory crash tests just before Christmas. Next Monday sees the start of the twenty first running of “Wrooom,” the team's traditional media event at Madonna di Campiglio in the Italian Dolomites. This event brings together the Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro drivers and their two-wheeled counterparts from the Ducati Marlboro Team, as well as members of the specialist media. For both Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa it is a chance for them to take up the reins once more in a relaxed environment and informal setting, whilst tackling some winter sports before taking on the usual challenge that brings the week to a close, when they get behind the wheel on the frozen lake in the Trentina region on Friday 14 January.
