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.
