Ferrari cancels F1 launch after snow hits Maranello

Heavy snow at Maranello has caused Ferrari to rethink plans to unveil its 2012 F1 contender.
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.

"It is still snowing heavily here in Maranello. Therefore, the launch ceremony of the new F1 car has been cancelled," Ferrari confirmed via its official Twitter feed, "Pictures, interviews and technical analysis of the new car will be available tomorrow on www.ferrarif1.com."
