The F60 was launched in Maranello, the home of Scuderia Ferrari a couple of hours ago.
Highlights:
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) that was developed in conjunction with Marelli.
A new Brembo designed brake system is also another feature on the car as well as a longitudinally-mounted gearbox.
Other changes are in line with the new regulations for the 2009 season.


Toyota, fifth last season, unveil their challenger on 15 January, with McLaren's latest model appearing the following day. Renault and Williams reveal their new cars on 19 January, with BMW Sauber doing the same 24 hours later. Red Bull announced last week that their car will be launched much later than many other leading teams, on 9 February.

More pictures of the F60 are available out HERE.

BREAKING!! Ron Dennis has quit his position as McLaren's boss. More out HERE.

Highlights of Toyota's new TF109 F1 racer:
The front wing is wider and lower, while the rear wing is narrower and smaller. The aerodynamic winglets that festooned the bodywork in previous years have been prohibited to reduce the amount of downforce. Specs: 2.5L V8, 740hp, 1334 lbs
