Ferrari showed off their 2020 Formula One car with a theatrical show of pride and passion on Tuesday (February 11), assuring success-starved fans that it was also very different under the skin to last year’s model.
The SF1000 car, marking the Italian team’s 1,000th race this year, is the car Ferrari hope will end six years of Mercedes domination and dash Lewis Hamilton’s bid to equal Michael Schumacher’s record seven titles.
If the red car looks superficially similar to the 2019 challenger, team principal Mattia Binotto said appearances were deceptive as he addressed an audience at Reggio Emilia’s opulent Romolo Valli theatre.
Four-times champion Sebastian Vettel, on stage with Monegasque teammate Charles Leclerc, gave it his immediate seal of approval.
