Ferrari have opted to cancel the official unveiling of their 2012 car because of heavy snowfall in Maranello. The launch ceremony was due to take place in Italy on Friday morning.

“There was no let up from the snow last night, which continued to fall on Maranello and the surrounding area and the situation does not appear to be changing this morning,” the team explained on Thursday.

“The forecast is still bad both in terms of predictions of more snowfall and of a further drop in temperature. Therefore, the decision has been taken to cancel the presentation ceremony for the new car.”

Although they have decided to cancel the launch event, Ferrari still plan to publish pictures, interviews and technical analysis on their website on Friday.
