The last car for the 2021 season has been reveal, after a forgetful season in 2020 finishing 6th in the teams championship, Ferrari unveils its 2021 car, the SF21, with a little bit of change in its livery we can see a red matte changing colour at the back of the car matching the Ferrari 125s (first Ferrari vehicle) colour, Mission Winnow is back as a sponsor, with a controversial green colour in the airbox, after being almost or completely absent last season. Weichai is also back in the team, they were at the 2020 pre-season testing but when the season started we saw the chinese brand removed from the car. We can see new sponsors in the team, Richard Mille replacing Hublot, Giorgo Armani and Estrella Galicia 0,0 the spanish brewery.
The SF21 will be driven by Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz, Leclerc finished 8th last year with two podiums and Sainz 6th place with one podium.
Mattia Binotto said about the new challenger: "The car was born out of last year´s car, due to new regulations.
“So it was partially frozen, but we tried to improve it in all of its areas, wherever it was possible.
“The aerodynamics was revised, and it has a completely new power unit.”
Enrico Gualtieri, Power Unit Director for Ferrari, added: "Along with the chassis engineers, we have worked considerably on the layout of the power unit, trying to make the overall project for the car as efficient as possible.
“We continuously worked on the internal combustion motor aiming to increase its thermal efficiency…
“We have put enormous energy into this project but at the same time we`re already working hard on the power unit for 2022.
“It will debut next year, and it´ll be even more important because it´ll be with us for at lear three years of races.”
The F1 pre season testing in Bahrain its two days away where we will see its performance on the track.
