Although Ferrari are keeping the exact details of the launch of their new car under wraps for the time being, the Italian team have confirmed they will unveil their 2011 challenger during the final week of January. The event will take place at the end of the month, before the first official test of the year gets underway at the Spanish circuit of Valencia on February 1.

Ferrari are hoping the as-yet unnamed car, along with their driver line-up of Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa, will help them return to the front of the field in 2011. They scored five victories last season, but ended the year third in the constructors’ standings - 102 points behind champions Red Bull.

The team also revealed that the new car passed a series of crash tests before the Christmas break, and confirmed Alonso and Massa will attend their annual ‘Wrooom’ media event at Italy’s Madonna di Campiglio ski resort next week.
