Ferrari unveil their 2009 car, the F60

Monday 12th January 2009

Ferrari became the first team to unveil their 2009 challenger when they launched the F60 at Maranello on Monday.

The Scuderia, who will be keen to wrestle back the World title from McLaren this season, put the new car on display, revealing many of the new odd looking 2009 regulations.

In keeping with the rules the 2009 contender features a long front wing with a short, high rear one as well as sidepod mounted mirrors. The slick Bridgestone tyres are also in evidence.

The F60 has also been fitted with Ferrari's Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS), which has been developed in conjunction with electronics supplier Magneti Marelli.

A new Brembo designed brake system is also another feature on the car as well as a longitudinally-mounted gearbox.

The car will be shaken down by Ferrari's runner up in the 2008 Championship, Felipe Massa, later today.
