Big numbers for the launch of the 62nd single-seater built by Ferrari and there was also plenty of traffic on social media.

Facebook on the Friday hit 6.2 million users, with 2 million interactions and 700,000 views of the videos of the day.
The Scuderia site saw its page visits increase tenfold, while on ferrari.com they quadrupled. This success was shared by other sites and on-line magazines from around the world, who put out the launch show live and recorded, with the first part focusing on the very first impressions of the new born Ferrari from those who will be experiencing it first hand.
