The 2011 Formula 1 season is certainly one Ferrari would like to forget. Despite former champion Fernando Alonso giving it his best, in the end the Scuderia had only one win to show and a poor third place in the constructors’ championship.
Ferrari’s head of communication, Luca Colajanni, told Italian publication Autosprint that the 2012 car, upon which the Scuderia has focused its resources since August, will be revealed at the first official test of the new season on February 7 at Jerez racetrack in Spain.
Colajanni added that it will be “very different” from the F150o Italia – which doesn’t really come as a surprise, given that this year’s car was clearly inferior to the Red Bull and the McLaren.
“The new Ferrari F1 car will be presented in early February, in time to take part in the first test session ahead of the season”, he said. “At the moment it’s not important to say whether the new project is going to be extreme. For sure, it will be a clean break with the past, a very different program, because it aims to win and marks a change of mentality by the entire team.”
