Ferrari make plans for 2013 car launch

Ferrari has announced its plans for the unveiling of its F2013 challenger for the upcoming new F1 season, as well as breaking ground on new facilities at Maranello.
Ferrari will reveal its 2013-model car in early February at their headquarters in Maranello, the team announced on Wednesday.

The new F2013 will be unveiled "in the very first days of February" before the first official pre-season test for F1 teams, due to be held at the Jerez circuit in Spain from February 5.

The car will be shipped to Jerez for its first public shakedown immediately after being formally unveiled at Maranello.

Meanwhile, the team has also got started with building work at Maranello on a long-term project to expand facilities for the F1 operation

According to a team press release, the first excavations for the foundations of a building that will house the offices of the management, engineers and administrative staff along with the working areas of the team has now got underway in the New Year, after the team ironed out the last planning details with the local district officials.

The building will replace a former car park located between the team's current facilities and the Cavallino restaurant, with the company aiming to create a bespoke environment customised to the need for the F1 operation and also hoping to retain the team's "Best place to work in Europe' title recently received from the Financial Times.

The team also confirmed that its traditional "Wrooom" media and team-bonding event will this year be held in the Dolomites at Madonna di Campiglio from January 14-18.

Among those attending will be drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa and team principal Stefano Domenicali, who will be meeting up with and taking questions from representatives of the media from all over the world.

They have upgraded their aero department with the addition of two very good people. In addition they are now using the Toyota wind tunnel. The regs on the front wing test have been further tightened. This will be Ferrari's best chance to Finally get it right. The Bulls ears are pinned back as far as the FIA can get them.

At the 2010 season opener, Massa qualified on the front row and Alonso on row 2. 2011 season opener saw Alonso qualify fifth, one and a half seconds off pole, the season was blighted by tyre warm up issues in qualifying. 2012 season opener saw both cars fail to advance out of q2 with unrestricted drs use.
