Ferrari became the first team to present their new F1 car for 2020 live after they showed their new car SF1000 at the Romolo Valli Municipal Theater near Modena.
The new car, marking the 1000th Formula One Ferrari race in its name, is a big evolution of its predecessor SF90 and Ferrari wants to end the period without constructors’ title since 2008 and without drivers’ title since 2007.
The car continues to use the high and narrow side air intakes first seen on the 2017 SF70H, which kicked off a new Formula One trend, but now no longer has additional openings on the upper side of the sidepods, which will further reduce air resistance and improve airflow to the rear end.
The engine cover is significantly closer to the power unit components for better aerodynamic efficiency and the car has unique ‘horns’ that extend on each side of the airbox above the driver’s head that are connected to the TV camera housings.
