On January 20, BMW Sauber's F1.

09 will run for the first time at Valencia's Ricardo Tormo circuit.

Red Bull does not plan to begin testing its RB5 until February, and Force India will wait until March.

Ferrari to launch new car next week

By Jonathan Noble Monday, January 5th 2009, 16:12 GMT

Ferrari will become the first team to launch their 2009 car after announcing that their new challenger will be unveiled on Monday, January 12.

The reigning constructors' champions will reveal their new car at their Fiorano test track next Monday morning, with Felipe Massa tasked with driving it for the first time later in the day.

Ferrari's launch kicks off a frantic fortnight of car unveilings, with Toyota following on Thursday 15th, and McLaren the day after.

Renault, Williams and BMW Sauber will then unveil their machines the following week.

February launch for Red Bull's RB5
Red Bull have announced that their new car, the RB5, will make its track debut at the Spanish circuit of Jerez on February 9 - significantly later than several of the team?s rivals, who have already revealed January launch dates.

?Our strategic plan has always been to take full advantage of the later start to the 2009 season," said Red Bull team principal Christian Horner. "And we are using the time to ensure we have optimised the car as much as possible, within the regulation changes, to start on the grid in Melbourne."

February 9 it is then for Red Bull.

I can't wait to see the car from Maranello that will rape everyone this coming F1 season.

Ugh, as expected those wings look horrid. The cleaner bodywork looks fantastic, but those wings...

Those mirrors are pushing the regulations a bit. At which point does a mirror become more of an aerodynamic device than a mirror?

You're looking at that point.

And wtf, F60 ? Not F2009 ?

The car has been named as a way of celebrating the fact that Ferrari are the only team to have competed in each of the 60 years of the Formula One world championship.
