Ferrari has unveiled its 2024 Formula 1 car, the SF-24, aiming to challenge Red Bull's dominance. While maintaining the traditional red color, the new design incorporates flashes of white and yellow, echoing the company's iconic logo.
Ferrari aims to capitalize on late-season progress in 2023, notably with Carlos Sainz securing a non-Red Bull victory at the Singapore Grand Prix. The team emphasizes creating a car that is easy to drive and reacts predictably, building on positive feedback from drivers in the final races of the previous season.
The SF-24 launch marks Ferrari's bid to close the gap to Red Bull, the reigning constructors' champions. Ferrari's strategic changes from the previous season continue, with a focus on enhancing race operation efficiency.
Team boss Fred Vasseur emphasizes the need for a more clinical approach and effective race management to achieve optimal results in every Grand Prix. Technical director Enrico Cardile highlights a comprehensive redesign of the SF-24, intending to create a new platform while building on the development direction adopted in the previous year.
The new car will undergo testing at the Fiorano circuit in Italy. Ferrari's ambition to challenge Red Bull extends beyond the car design, emphasizing bold race management decisions. The team aims to capitalize on lessons learned and improvements made in the 2023 season.
Additionally, the recent high-profile signing of seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton for the 2025 season has generated significant attention and anticipation for Ferrari's future campaigns.
