Scuderia Ferrari have taken the covers off their 2020 Formula 1 car, the SF1000. Check out all the latest pictures from the launch!
Ferrari are the first Formula 1 team of 2020 to show off their new car, after livery reveals from Haas and Mercedes over the weekend.
Taking to the stage in the Teatro Romolo Calli in Reggio Emilia in Italy, race drivers Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc pulled the covers from the new SF1000 to reveal the Scuderia’s 2020 Formula 1 car.
While quite similar on an aesthetic level to the SF90, Sebastian Vettel pointed out that the new car is a refinement of the 2019 car and that there’s been a lot of work under the skin.
“It’s an incredible achievement and a lot of hours that goes into the car.”
I like it a lot. We had the opportunity to see it before [the launch] and to have a direct comparison with last year’s car and you can really spot the differences. Especially when it comes to packaging and the back part of the car.”
“We all at Ferrari, and particularly the F1 team are very conscious of the huge responsibilities on our shoulders and we clearly are very focused on the ultimate goal, which is victory.” said Ferrari CEO Louis Camilleri. “I believe we have the talent and determination to meet these ambitions.”
“With responsibility comes pressure, and we view this pressure in a positive manner, because it has the effect of uniting us and inspiring us to do ever better. I can assure you that we are more demanding on ourselves than anyone else could ever be.”
“This year is going to be interesting, we have tough competition with a long season, but it’s also important because, in parallel, we have to create and develop a completely new car in line with the new regulations that will govern Formula 1 in 2021 and beyond. So the team is going to be very, very busy.”
“I have every confidence that we have the people, the creativity, the discipline, the determination and work ethic they have which is the hallmark of this company and one which has been instilled in us by our founder, Enzo Ferrari.”
