Ferrari have unveiled the car they hope will end their title drought and Mercedes’ F1 dominance in 2019.
The new Scuderia challenger, the SF90, was launched by Sebastian Vettel and new team-mate Charles Leclerc, radiating the classic Ferrari red as well as splashes of black, and adorned with the iconic prancing horse.
Although the Maranello team’s 2019 challenger is an evolution of last year’s SF71H, Binotto says a lot of work has gone into aggressive design concepts.
He cites the extremely narrow airbox, plus the tight packaging around the rear of the car that has been helped in particular by Ferrari’s plan to run a unique double-stacked exhaust system.
“In 2018 we got really good achievements, and this car is a development of last year’s car,” said Binotto.
“I’m really excited and I can’t wait to get in,” said Vettel.
“I’m looking forward to this year, I think the team is on the right path and hopefully we can continue improving.”
