Ferrari's 2012 F1 unveiling has been thrown into disarray by the arrival of heavy snow at its Maranello base.

While the white stuff is no stranger to the Scuderia's corner of Italy, the severity of the fall this time around has left the team with no option but to cancel Friday's planned unveiling of its 2012 challenger and revert to an 'online' reveal instead.
