errari have unveiled the car they hope will challenge for the Formula One world title for the first time since 2008 next season.
The Italian manufacturer came third behind Mercedes and Red Bull in last year’s constructors’ championship, 12 months after their worst finish for four decades.
But team principal Mattia Binotto said on Thursday he is hopeful that the F1-75 will return one of the most successful teams in the sport’s history to former glories.
“The results have not lived up to what is expected of the Ferrari name,” said Binotto, adding that the latest creation means “fans can once again be proud of Ferrari”.
Calling it a “brave Ferrari”, Binotto said that the team had been “thinking outside the box” with the F1-75 in response to the big changes in F1 regulations.
The new Ferrari, the seventh car launched from the 2022 grid, has a new red and black livery.
And driver Charles Leclerc said: “It looks impressive, it looks extreme. This season is going to be a very important season for the team. It’s a good opportunity so the expectations are very high. We’ll achieve great results through the season.”
In what will be his second season alongside Leclerc, Carlos Sainz Jr said: “Now it’s time to take the team to a different level. We want more success in 2022 so let’s go and get it. It looks aggressive, it looks radical. I hope it’s fast.”
