Ferrari first to launch 2009 F1 car

January 06, 2009 12:25 IST

Champions Ferrari will be the first Formula One team to reveal their 2009 car with an unveiling scheduled for their Maranello factory on January 12, the Italian team said on Monday.

Brazilian Felipe Massa, runner-up to McLaren's Lewis Hamilton in last year's drivers' world championship, will be the first behind the wheel at the team's nearby Fiorano track later in the day.

The wraps will come off Hamilton's new McLaren at that team's Woking factory in England on January 16, a day after Toyota launch their challenger on the internet.
