8438 - Ferrari to launch on February 3

The car, which the team insists will be a complete departure from this year's F150 Italia, will be unveiled five days before the first test according to a Gazzetta dello Sport interview with Montezemolo.

Montezemolo told Sky Sports News that the team must do better in 2012.

"I was extremely unhappy with what happened last season," he said. "For us the main goal is, again, to be competitive and I have a lot of confidence in my people and their capability to react."

Montezemolo also revealed on that Ferrari's engine department had accomplished the "fusion of the first 6-cylinder engine" ahead of the introduction of V6 turbos in 2014.
