Ferrari is the most recent Formula One team to reveal their 2024 rival.
The new Ferrari SF-24 Formula One car has been unveiled ahead of the 2024 season.
The SF-24, driver dungarees and team uniform are all decorated in a striking new livery that combines Ferrari’s iconic crimson red with white and yellow accents.
Max Verstappen and Red Bull’s present dominance in Formula One is expected to end when the Italian team’s new opponent leads them to their first world title since 2008.
Although Ferrari finished second to Mercedes in the previous race, it was capable of outpacing Red Bull’s superior RB19 for at least one lap.
For the fourth year in a row, Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc will be teammates; however, this will be the Spaniard’s last season with Ferrari, since Lewis Hamilton has chosen to switch from Mercedes to Maranello.
The goal of the SF-24, according to technical director chassis Enrico Cardile, was to develop a whole new platform. “In actuality, it may be claimed that the automobile has undergone complete redesign.
“We have taken the drivers’ hints and turned them into engineering marvels, satisfying their need for a car that is simpler to operate and, consequently, easier to abuse and push to the limit.
We haven’t imposed any design restrictions on ourselves other than to create a solid and genuine single-seater that replicates on the track what we see in the wind tunnel, using last year’s development path as a guide, which helped us advance our competitiveness by the end of the season.
The Singapore Grand Prix was won by Ferrari, preventing a Red Bull rout from the previous season. Sainz was the only driver who wasn’t a Red Bull driver to taste victory in 2023.
With three podium finishes in the last four races, Leclerc helped the Maranello team finish the season as Red Bull’s closest rivals.
Ferrari aims to increase high-speed performance and solve a weakness of their cars in recent years, tyre wear, with the SF-24 having almost 95% of the components from the SF-23 replaced.
Red Bull will be the tenth and last team to unveil their new challenger on Thursday, following Mercedes and McLaren’s official 2024 launch on Wednesday at Silverstone.
