The new car – named to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the reunification of Italy – will be given a brief run at the team’s Fiorano test track before being flown to Valencia in Spain for the first pre-season test, which starts on 1 February

Alonso will drive for the first two days in Valencia, with team-mate Massa taking over for the final day.

But a number of new parts will be added to the F150 between then and the first race.

They plan to run an updated 2010 car there before taking the new car to the second test in Jerez on 10-13 February in the hope the extra few days aerodynamic research will give them an advantage.

The next teams to unveil their cars are Renault, Sauber and Lotus on 31 January, with world champions Red Bull, Mercedes and Toro Rosso following suit on 1 February.

McLaren are the only top team who will not have a new car at the Valencia test.
