After what ended up becoming one of the most dramatic and controversial Formula One seasons in recent history, Ferrari is already gearing up for the 2014 season and they’re set to drum up the hype with the debut of their 2013 Formula One race car.

Set to be unveiled on February 1, Scuderia Ferrari has prepared a countdown teaser ahead of the race car’s live online debut.

It’ll be interesting to see what kind of changes Ferrari has up its sleeves after star driver Fernando Alonso came so close to dethroning reigning and defending champion, Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel. At the same time, Ferrari president, Luca di Montezemolo, acknowledged the need for the team to cost cut in line with the FIA’s objective to remain financially and economically viable in the long run.

Be that as it may, we’re still very interested to see what’s lying under that red sheet. If Alonso came within a controversial non-penalty by Vettel of winning the title last year, we’d be surprised if Ferrari doesn’t have a car that puts the Spaniard over the hump.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Is that a cover over a Ferrari or just an abstract way of revealing a pleasant surprise?
