Ferrari planning a double show for 2021 launch

Prior to this, the team had been running tests on their older cars at their own track at Fiorano, with drivers such as Schumacher, Sainz, Leclerc, and Ilott, to name a few.

Will Buxton said, “Not a lot to report, except for the fact, that the team, although it hasn’t announced when its launch will be, as I understand it , are planning a two launch.”

He added, “The first part would be the drivers, the team bosses, and, you know, everybody important. The second part, later in the year, just before the test, will be the car itself.

“So, a bit of two-part tease from Ferrari”

The red team is currently filming content with their lead drivers, Leclerc and Sainz, at Imola with Ferrari’s road car.

Ferrari’s double launch will come somewhere close to February end and March beginning, where they will ramp hype the hype with the ‘Tifosi,’ Ferrari’s fan base, for the new season.

The injured horse

Everyone can agree to the fact that Ferrari’s 2020 season was their most horrible season since 1989. The Maranello based team finished sixth in the constructor’s championship, managing to score only two podiums throughout the season, one with Leclerc and the other one with Vettel.

Hopefully, bringing in the Spaniard, Carlos Sainz, from McLaren proves to be worth it, allowing the team to regain its rightful position at the front of the grid.
