Scuderia Ferrari have officially unveiled their car for the forthcoming Formula One season. The big reveal was streamed online via their website on the 19th of February. This reveal comes just 3 days before the first pre-season test in Barcelona.
The new car, dubbed the SF16-H, has many dramatic upgrades over the 2015 counterpart. These include a newly redesigned nose cone, tapered rear end, and more white added to the bright red livery. The new name SF16-H was chosen for SF to represent Scuderia Ferrari, 16 to represent the year, and H represents the Hybrid power train which will run for the third consecutive season.
Ferrari have also released new team portraits of their 2016 drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen. These show only minor changes to the team uniforms with more of the Italian flag incorporated around the legs and arms.
Ferrari finished 2nd in the Constructors Championship in 2015 and took 3 wins over the season. They are hoping that this evolution of the car can provide more competitive results and knock Mercedes off the top spot.
The first on track action of the new SF16-H will be on the 22nd of February at the first pre-season test at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. Ferrari will be looking to use this test to gain as much information on the new chassis as possible.
