Milan - Ferrari have canceled Friday's official launch of their new Formula One car because of the adverse weather conditions affecting the north of Italy.

Heavy snow has been falling since Tuesday afternoon and Ferrari have now decided to cancel the ceremony and will simply publish pictures and technical details online.

A team statement on Thursday said: "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."

The bad weather has already seen four Serie A midweek matches postponed.
