Ferrari and Midland launching tomorrow

The Ferrari and Midland F1 teams will be launching their 2005 efforts tomorrow. Ferrari will unveil its car in Maranello while Midland will use Red Square in Moscow. Midland may upstage Ferrari for launch venues but the Silverstone-based team is not about to upstage Ferrari on the race track, although in 2006 the team will be using the same engines as the Ferrari factory team. The Russian event will inevitably lead to much speculation about more Russian involvement in the sport. Whether this potential is going to be exploited in the immediate future is difficult to know as several previous attempts to give Russia a higher profile in racing have all failed.
