Despite the engine woes, Ferrari decided to design a new livery for their car. The SF1000s will be sporting a Burgundy with a matte finish.

Ferrari look back to their initial days with the first 125 F1s. These were the very first cars to be racing for the Prancing Stallion back in 1950. The color is reminiscent of their rich and storied history.

Ferrari Vice Chairman extends his gratitude to the FIA

Piero Ferrari, Vice Chairman at Ferrari, seems to be very enthusiastic and excited about the race at Mugello Circuit. He states that in addition to the car’s redesigned livery, the racers will have matching apparels as well.

The Ferrari boss expressed his joy and said, “Scuderia Ferrari’s 1000th Grand Prix is a very important milestone, therefore it had to be marked in a special way.

“That’s why we decided to run a unique livery on the cars for this event, with the SF1000s taking to the track at the Mugello Circuit in the Burgundy colour first seen on the 125 S, the first racing car to carry the Ferrari name.

“Even the look of the race numbers on Charles’ and Sebastian’s cars will reflect the tradition of the past, giving the impression of being hand-painted onto the bodywork, while the drivers’ race suits will also match the car colour.”

He also expressed his gratitude to the FIA for honoring the team that have been the most loyal and most consistent team over the course of the 71 years. Piero takes pride in Ferrari not missing a single Grand Prix throughout these years.

Although Piero boasts of the brilliant engines and mind-boggling strategies, Ferrari has endured a rather unfortunate tale in these avenues this season.

Looking into the Circuit

The Mugello Circuit poses a serious challenge to the racers with its esses and the two long straights. The setting is compatible with the SF1000s and both the racers will be looking forward to making most of it.
