Now the launch date of the new car of the Italian racing team Ferrari has been published.
On Friday morning, a fire-up was posted on Ferrari’s social media channels that included the launch date. There are two dates where at the first launch the team can get a look at the new car. That’s supposed to happen on February 26th. On March 10th the new car will be presented to the public.
That makes Ferrari the sixth team to release the launch date for their new car. Now only Red Bull, Aston Martin, Alpine and Haas are missing.
Mattia Binotto, Ferrari’s team principal, also added shortly before the fire-up:
“Our 2021 season starts here. We can expect plenty of challenges along the way and we are determined to do better.
The car has been improved in all areas where developments are permitted.Mattia Binotto – Ferrari Team Principal
“We must work in a determined and focused way aware of where we were and where we want to go.”
Ferrari will have to prove themselves again as the 2020 season was their worst in 40 years. They want to tackle this endeavour with a new driver, named Carlos Sainz. The Spaniard moves from McLaren to the Italians and is expected to be good competition for Charles Leclerc.
The launch dates of the teams so far:
|Alpine F1 Racing||February|
|Ferrari||February 26th / March 10th|
|Alfa Romeo Racing||February 22nd|
|Williams Racing||March 5th|
