Ferrari presents new F1 auto, SF90, to challenge Mercedes

Earlier today, the Scuderia Ferrari team revealed their 2019 vehicle and livery, the SF-90.

Ferrari unveiled its 2019 Prancing Horse on Friday in Maranello, a auto which has been denominated as the SF90 in reference to the creation of the Scuderia by Enzo Ferrari in 1929.

The "Ferrar SF90" was launched along with a fairly new look Ferrari team for this season, with Sebastian Vettel now being joined by young Charles Leclerc as a teammate.

"I'm extremely excited to start this new adventure", he grinned, "obviously it has been a dream since childhood".

"Unfortunately, I'm not dressed properly and can't just jump in and drive off". I am looking forward to this year. If the German manufacturer wins another championship, it will match the record of six straight constructors' titles Ferrari won between 1999 and 2004. A year ago appeared to have been its best chance in recent memory to win again, but a series of mistakes from Vettel and from the strategy department cost the team dearly.

The past two seasons have held out the promise of Ferrari challenging Mercedes' dominance, with Vettel finishing runner-up to Briton Lewis Hamilton on both occasions.

His talent, maturity, race skill and speed was evident to all a year ago and we are sure great things await him in the future.

"It's an important milestone as we continue to be inspired and guided by the vision of our founder Enzo Ferrari".

Vettel, a four-time world champion, will spearhead the team's title bid this season, and is aiming to bounce back from a disappointing second half of the 2018 campaign which was marred by individual errors.

"Such a setback is never easy to swallow, but I assure you we look ahead with strong commitment and determination".

Since arriving to Ferrari from Red Bull in 2015, Vettel has struggled to seriously challenge Mercedes-AMG, which has produced five consecutive world champions.

The Maranello squad have already undergone a massive overhaul with Mattia Binotto replacing Maurizio Arrivabene as team principal.

"The auto we presented today is a evolution of the 2018 vehicle, the reason is because the 2018 auto was already a great auto", said Binotto. There will be much to learn for him at the start, he's got a good reference.

"We simply tried to push again, raise the bar, raise the level, and have tried to be as extreme as we could".

"Some changes like the front wing for the regulations".

The rearward flaps of the wing slope downwards from the centre towards the outside of the wing, with the intention of channelling air in aerodynamically advantageous ways and reducing the losses caused by the new rules.
