Ferrari sets February launch date for 2018 F1 car


Ferrari will launch its 2018 Formula 1 car on February 22, four days before pre-season testing starts at Barcelona.

The Italian team enjoyed a resurgence in fortunes this year, bouncing back from a disappointing, win-less 2016 campaign to win five races and fight for the drivers' championship with Sebastian Vettel.

Ferrari will launch next year's car on Thursday February 22 with an online reveal, before the car is taken to Barcelona early for a filming day ahead of testing starting on the following Monday - February 26.

Speaking at Ferrari's annual pre-Christmas media dinner in Maranello, its president Sergio Marchionne said he had no doubt the Prancing Horse will fight for the title again in 2018.
