Ferrari has delighted fans this week by revealing a new yellow look for their home Italian Grand Prix as one of Formula 1’s most historic teams celebrates its 75th anniversary.
The team unveiled the special once-off livery which features a touch of yellow on the car – most notably on the front and rear wings and the engine cover.
As well as this, the team’s drivers, Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz, also showed off their new race suits and their paddock uniforms featuring the same yellow and black scheme.
The team is well known for making the most of its in-house celebrations with a revised livery in recent years – back in 2020 they ran a burgundy livery at the Tuscan Grand Prix to mark their 1000th Grand Prix.
Speaking about the thinking behind this weekend’s livery a spokesperson said it is “very much part of Ferrari history.”
Enzo Ferrari chose yellow for the famous Prancing Horse logo, as well as the fact that yellow and blue are the colours of the emblem of Modena – where their late founder was born and raised.
Ferrari remains one of the most successful teams to ever compete in the sport, and became an independent constructor in 1947, before entering their first F1 season in 1950.
They have featured on the grid ever since and have won a total of 31 world championships.
No red without yellow 💛
