The wraps have come off the car that Ferrari hopes will wrest the Formula One world title back from McLaren, as the Scuderia became the first team to unveil its 2009 contender.

Built to the latest set of F1 regulations, the car looks markedly different to those of recent years, with the wider and lower front wing and narrower, taller rear clearly visible in the initial studio-based images released from Maranello ahead of the car's official unveiling.

The car has been dubbed the F60, departing from the expected F2009 moniker that would have built on recent years, and is expected to hit the track, albeit later than scheduled, for the first time on Monday 12 January, with Felipe Massa at the wheel.
