It is the 56th F1 car built by Ferrari, but time well tell whether they have managed to build a championship challenging model.

Ferrari have unveiled their challenger for the 2012 F1 season. It was revealed live on the internet after the Italian racing team canceled the live event due to the snowfall in the area. It is the 56th F1 car built by Ferrari, but time will tell whether they have managed to build a championship challenging model.

Ferrari designers have taken a similar approach to their McLaren counterparts, favoring evolution rather than revolution. The main changes highlighted include the front section of the chassis, the position of the exhaust pipes and the mapping for the electronic engine management.

The front wing has largely been carried over from last season's model with a few evolutionary changes, although we should expect even further modifcations when the first race kicks off. It is attached to the boxy front nose which even Ferrari has accepted as ugly. They state that their model's nose has a step in it that is not aesthetically pleasing but is required to abide by F1 regulations.
