Ferrari present new car

5:49 am on 14 January 2009

Ferrari has presented a new-look 2009 Formula One car with team boss Stefano Domenicali recognising that new regulations would make it harder for the Italian team to defend their title.

Formula One has to contend with major changes this year including cost-cutting measures in response to the global financial crisis.

Ferrari have won the constructors' title for eight of the past 10 years but is eager to make up for missing out on the drivers' championship to McLaren's Lewis Hamilton last season.

Brazilian Felipe Massa, last year's runner-up to Hamilton, will give the new car its first proper run-out at the Mugello circuit north of Florence.
