Ferrari has cancelled F1 car launch event for its 2012 car due to the climate situation at Maranello. Ferrari planned new car was due to be reveal at the team’s headquarters in Northern Italy on Friday morning, and track running planned in Saturday for promotional use. With heavy snow and cold temperatures worrying much of Europe, Ferrari has been forced to cancel the event
“There was no let up from the snow last night, which continued to fall on Maranello and the surrounding area and the situation does not appear to be changing this morning,” Ferrari said on its official website. “The forecast is still bad both in terms of predictions of more snow fall and of a further drop in temperature.
“Therefore, the decision has been taken to cancel the presentation ceremony for the new car, which was to have taken place at 10.30 tomorrow. The decision was taken because of the weather conditions and because of the difficulties that would have faced the 300 or so people due to attend from the team partners, the authorities and representatives of the media in their attempts to get to Maranello.”
