MARANELLO, Italy(AP) Ferrari has unveiled its completely overhauled Formula One car in a low-key Internet presentation after the full launch was canceled due to a snowstorm.

The car is named the F2012, which marks a return to the team's traditional jargon after last year's car was called the F150 in honor of the 150th anniversary of Italy's unification.

Having won only one race last year, Ferrari began working on the new car midway through last season, with a heavy emphasis on improved aerodynamics.

This year's first test session is next week in Jerez, Spain, while the opening race is in Melbourne, Australia on March 18.
