Ferrari will hope that the new car will end a run of four years without a Formula One title. Ferrari last won the constructors' title in 2008.

Maranello, Italy:

Ferrari has 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 Felipe Massa, while Raikkonen won the team's last drivers' title in 2007.

Ferrari has won a record 16 constructors titles in their illustrious history.

Force India launches its car later on Friday.

This season begins with the Australian Grand Prix on March 17. Pre-season testing will start in Jerez, Spain, next week onwards.
