Ferrari has revealed a stunning matte red and black SF90 as the Scuderia launched their 2019 campaign.

The 2018 runners-up unveiled their car in front of team personnel, academy drivers and loyal fans as they submitted their challenge to Mercedes for the 2019 world championship.

The Maranello squad welcome Charles Leclerc to their 2019 line up – from the former Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team – in just his second season of Formula 1. The team will also be led by a new name this year as Mattia Binotto takes over the role from axed leader Maurizio Arrivabene.

Ferrari takes a refreshed approach in 2019 joining forces with the Mission Winnow project pioneered by long-time Ferrari partner Phillip Morris. The new vision focusses on continually improving and evolving in all aspects of motorsport as Binotto pressed.  “It’s simply looking ahead. Just do what you need to do and try to do it your best.”

CEO of Ferrari, Louis Camilleri also addressed the event adding the importance of Ferrari’s 90th anniversary. “This year is an important one for we celebrate our 90th anniversary as the Scuderia Ferrari was born in Modena in 1929. It’s an important milestone as we continue to be inspired and guided by the vision of our founder Enzo Ferrari.

“We fully understand as a team we carry the hopes, expectation and pride of an entire nation and millions of fans across the world. It’s a responsibility we gladly accept. Last season was our best in the last ten years, yet we fell short of our objectives. Such a setback is never easy to swallow, but I assure you we look ahead with strong commitment and determination.”

Sister team Alfa Romeo Racing are the final team to officially release their 2019 product in the pitlane of the upcoming Barcelona pre-season test on February 18.
