When the workers at Ferrari started the day, they must’ve been quite optimistic, eagerly waiting to show their fans their challenger for the 2021 season. They would’ve expected to start their season off on a positive note; unfortunately, for the Italian team, the reactions to their car and its launch were anything but positive.

Firstly, to take all the excitement and thrill away from the launch, the 2021 Ferrari car was leaked online. This the second time a car has been leaked, the first one being with Williams. The world wasn’t kind to the Italians and made fun of them due to this blunder.

Then, Twitter was quick to drag the team through mud because of their new livery. While some love it others hate the design of Ferrari’s new title challenger.

The Maranello-based team had gone through a terrible season last year; they only scored 131 points and finished 13th in the championship. The team has brought Spanish driver, Carlos Sainz, who will pair up with Leclerc for the upcoming championship.

The team had a lackluster car last season that saw them struggle in races. However, the new challenger looks promising and hopes that their drivers will make the most out of the new car as they prepare for a new season.

The SF21 will be unleashed in Bahrain where it will see the track for the first time. The pre-season test will show how much the Scuderia have learned over the break and much further they need to go in order to have a better year. The 28th of March will see the car meet its completion for the new year of racing in Formula One.
