Ferrari F2001 Information and Pictures

The new F1 car - named the F2001 - was launched in Maranello on the 29th January. The car will defend attacks on Ferrari's Drivers' and Constructors' World Championship crowns. The car was presented by Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo, Sporting Director Jean Todt, Technical Director Ross Brawn, Engine Director Paulo Martinelli, Designer Rory Byrne and the three drivers - Michael Schumacher, Rubens Barichello and the Test Driver, Luca Badoer. Around 700 members of the Ferrari world Club and Ferrari Clubs from all over Italy were arranged in the grandstands to make up the name "F2001" (See Pictures). This year the team will feel under extreme pressure to keep their position as number one.

Forza Ferrari!
