Ferrari has announced that it will launch its 2013 car at its Maranello headquarters on February 1.

The car is being developed at the Toyota wind tunnel in Cologne while Ferrari updates its own wind tunnel over the winter. It will be launched on the same day that Force India unveils its 2013 car at Silverstone, while McLaren launches the day before and Red Bull two days later.

The launch comes just four days before the start of the first pre-season test of 2013 at Jerez on February 5.

Ferrari has retained the driver line-up of Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa for the fourth consecutive season.
