Just 30km away from their Maranello HQ, Ferrari’s revealed its 2020 Formula One season car and it didn’t disappoint. The imposing neoclassical Reggio d’Emilie theatre was the perfect backdrop for such an occasion, with fans draped in red flags waiting the entrance for Vettel and Leclerc to sign autographs and pose for photos.
Charles Leclerc shared the big reveal on his Instagram page, writing “New season, new car, new overall but same colour.”

Ferrari chief Mattia Binotto presented the focuses of the SF1000 build. After last year’s corner struggles, Binotto spoke of adjusting their aero concept and adding downforce. Secondly, the “packaging”. The SF1000’s very tight bodywork has produced a narrow and slimline car, an optimised version of the SF90 whilst maintaining its philosophy.
2021 looks like it could be the year of big change, however. During the evening, Binotto and CEO Louis Camilleri talked about 2021 technical regulations, explaining how it was a tricky balance of the 2020 campaign with the development of a dramatically different 2021 car.
Pre-season testing begins at the Barcelona Circuit on 19th February, with round 1 kicking off in Melbourne on the 13th March. The 2020 Monaco Grand Prix takes place this year on Sunday 24th May; 78 laps of the 3.337 kilometer circuit.
