Ferrari unveils new F138 car
MARANELLO, Italy -- Ferrari has unveiled the car the Italian team hopes will end a run of four years without a Formula One title.
The car's name -- F138 -- is a combination of the year and a tribute to the V8 engines that will be used for the last time this season, bringing an end to an eight-year run.
Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali called the launch "a starting point for a year with only one goal: To add to our wonderful history."
Ferrari has a record 16 constructors titles.
Force India launches its car later Friday.
This season begins with the Australian Grand Prix on March 17. Testing starts in Jerez, Spain, next week.
