Sun, 6 January 2008, 03:28

Ferrari on Sunday launched and released photographs of its new car, officially designated F2008.

The major changes compared with the title winning 2007 racer appear to be an integrated nose-wing solution at the front, bodywork trappings around the side pods, a thinner profile around the engine and – as per the 2008 rules – higher cockpit sides for improved safety.

The project was internally codenamed the 659.

“All aerodynamic surfaces have been completely revised, however the current version will be replaced by a completely different configuration in time for the first race,” the team revealed from its headquarters in Italy.

Kimi Raikkonen will guide the F2008 through its first paces at Fiorano on Monday.
