Ferrari’s 2006 Formula 1 car, the 248 F1, made its track debut at Fiorano today.

Said Jean Todt at a news conference in Mugello: “We will go into this season with a great motivation, great humility and also a great determination to get back to the top. “We have the team, we have the means and we have the drivers so there is no excuse not to return to where we were and this will be our aim.”

“How nice it is to do a launch with the new car running outside, a very pleasant background,” said technical director Ross Brawn amidst screams from the V8 engine.

“The car was quick straight away and reliable,” said Felipe Massa. “We have good expectations for this year but we will see when all the cars are together and we can compare properly.”

Michael Schumacher also gave the new car an initial thumbs up.
