Maranello: Ferrari have unveiled the car the Italian team hopes will end a run of four years without a Formula One title. The car's name - F138 - is a combination of the year and a tribute to the V8 engines which will be used for the last time this season, bringing an end to an eight-year run.

Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali called the launch "a starting point for a year with only one goal: To add to our wonderful history." Ferrari last won the constructors' title in 2008 with Kimi Raikkonen and Massa, while Raikkonen won the team's last drivers' title in 2007.

Ferrari have a record 16 constructors titles. Force India launches their car later Friday. This season begins with the Australian Grand Prix on March 17. Testing starts in Jerez, Spain, next week.
