Ferrari launched their 2014 car today, in an online unveiling that showed off their take on the nose. Having seen McLaren’s single point, and Lotus with a double strut tuning fork style front, Ferrari have gone for a third option. Their nose dips down but remains wide, merging with the front wing and ending in an open duct at the very tip.

Stefano Domenicali said: “I think this year the technical challenge is, as far as I can remember, the biggest one we’ve seen… We have a total new powertrain, a new set of regulations that are very interesting but need to be looked at in depth. The last couple of years, the changes we’ve done in our organisation are very important.”

Meanwhile, Fernando Alonso talked up their chances of a championship: “I think Schumacher won in the fifth year with Ferrari, I’m in the fifth year now so hopefully I can repeat some of the success he had. In the last few years we’ve had some opportunities… this year we’ll try again and hopefully this year will be the good one.”
