Slick, untreaded tyres are also being reintroduced after 11 years on grooved tyres, and teams have the option of employing a kinetic energy recovery system (Kers).
Ferrari were the first constructor to unveil their new car for 2009, and its F60 model has been run briefly by drivers Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikonen at their Mugello test track.

Ferrari has traditionally tested its cars more than other teams because it has its own circuit.
"This means we have to completely change the way we are working," said Domenicali, adding that Ferrari are reluctant to make predictions about the new season, which starts at the end of March in Melbourne.

"For sure, this year will be a very difficult championship."
