Ferrari F1 will be the last team to unveil their machine for the 2021 season. Unlike other teams, Ferrari have done something innovative with their car launch. Most teams unveil their cars and showcase their drivers sporting the new racing suit on the same day, but not the Scuderia. They have opted to to dedicate a separate day for the unveiling of their personnel and a separate day for their car launch. Without much further ado, let us have a look at a few important things that fans need to know regarding the team’s staggered unveiling.

The Italian team endured quite the nightmare campaign last year. A team that is used to fighting at the front of the grid could only manage a 6th place finish in the championship due to their poor chassis and lackluster engine.

This season, however, they sport a new driver lineup and have apparently solved the engine issues as well as the car itself. But until the pre-season tests begin on March 12th, it’ll be difficult to say just how much they have improved. Although Sainz and Leclerc will soon be testing the new 2021 tires, albeit in an older machine.

Nevertheless, based on the optimism, they may be closer to the front this time around. The Tifosi would hope that their team competes for podiums on a regular basis.
