Ferrari will launch its 2012 car on February 3, Stefano Domenicali confirms

Ferrari logoFerrari will launch its 2012 Formula 1 challenger on February 3 at Maranello, team principal Stefano Domenicali has confirmed.

Speaking at the annual Wrooom event, Domenicali said that Ferrari also planned to hold an initial shakedown of its 2012 car either on its launch or on the following day, February 4.

Following a disappointing season in 2011, Domenicali admitted that Ferrari faced a new set of expectations for the new season but said his approach remained calm and relaxed.

"To take the new season with anxiety does not help, so it is useless to feel stress," he asserted.

"We do know the season is going to be important and delicate from many points of view, but this is part of the sport and this type of situation is part of the context in which Ferrari has been operating in.

"Clearly there are expectations we have to manage in the best possible way. The emotional side is important, especially in a team like ours, so my approach and the approach I have always had is of being calm, relaxed and determined - without feeling de-motivated if things should not go better at the start, and not being too positive if things go well at the beginning."
