Ferrari has announced that it will launch its 2011 car in the final week of January, ahead of the first official test of the year that starts in Valencia on February 1.
Although a majority of outfits are expected to unveil their new challengers in Valencia, which is the first of four pre-season tests, Ferrari is expected to follow tradition and reveal its new car at Maranello once again.
The team has not committed itself to a set date yet for the launch, but has confirmed that the car has already passed a series of mandatory crash tests.
Ahead of the launch, Ferrari duo Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa will make their first public appearances of 2011 at the traditional media ski camp event, Wrooom, which takes place at Madonna di Campiglio in Italy next week.
