The Ferrari F1 team launched their 2022 Formula 1 World Championship contender online at the Gestione Sportiva in Maranello.
The F1-75 is the 68th car built by the historic team and features a new shade of red developed by the Ferrari Style Centre.
The car was named in recognition of the Italian team’s 75th anniversary of its founding year and will take to the track for testing in a matter of days.
It will be piloted by Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz throughout the 2022 season, while Antonio Giovinazzi and Mick Schumacher will act as reserve drivers.
A statement released by the team explained: “The F1-75 has a completely new look, as a result of the Maranello engineers’ interpretation of the new technical regulations that come into force this year.
“The design phase was tackled with an innovative, unconventional approach. Among the elements that stand out, the lower nose, and the bodywork where particular attention has been paid to the packaging of the PU and its ancillary parts in order to achieve the best possible aerodynamic performance.
“This year also marks the return of ground effect after a forty-year absence, while the Pirelli tyres have increased in size to 18 inches, as from this season.”
Speaking about the launch, Team Principal & Managing Director, Mattia Binotto said: “The F1-75 is the expression of the talent, commitment and passion of each and every one of us.
“It is the end result of the work of a team that, like never before, has tackled the task with a new spirit and approach, pushing to the maximum in terms of innovation of every component, every detail, every solution. Striving to be innovative gave us an incredible boost in our daily work, on the way to producing this car.
“I am proud of the work that has gone into designing the F1-75. We know that expectations are high and we are ready to go up against our opponents. That’s the best part of this challenge and it’s what makes our work so fascinating. I would like the F1-75 to be the car that allows our fans to once again be proud of Ferrari.
“Our goal is to reignite the Prancing Horse legend and we can only do that by winning again. That will require a fast car and two great drivers and we have them.”
Laurent Mekies, Racing Director and Head of Track Area added: “Our race team is gearing up for the longest season ever and possibly for one of the most surprising seasons of the last decade. Different regulations, different cars, 23 races.
“It’s going to be an incredible challenge for all of us. Last year we had a good scrap for third place in the Constructors’ Championship and, as a team, we made significant progress.
“The coming season might hold some surprises. At the first race in Bahrain, there could be very little difference in performance terms between the teams, but then over the course of the year, we could see some teams and drivers make great progress. We will definitely have to manage our energy well, in order to stay fully focussed all year long.
“We can count on our fantastic team spirit and our desire to test ourselves against the strongest opponents. In our favour, we have the incredible talent and dedication of Charles and Carlos, who have worked hard all winter with the engineers to develop the car in the right direction.”
