Ferrari's F1-75 roars into life
Ferrari have fired up their 2022 Formula 1 car the F1-75 for the first time on Thursday at the team’s headquarters in Maranallo.

The F1-75 is the 68th F1 car produced by the famous Italian team, and the name it carries gives tribute to the 75th anniversary of the first Ferrari production car, the 125S, that left the factory in March 75 years ago.

The F1-75 carries the hopes of Ferrari and their Tifosi, of returning to the team’s winning ways, and the rough patch they have been going through over the past few years.

Despite having a mini-recovery in 2021, achieving third in the Constructors’ Standings, the fact remains that Ferrari’s last win was in 2019 at the Singapore GP with Sebastian Vettel. Their last F1 Drivers’ Champion is the now-retired Kimi Raikkonen, as they have last won the Constructors’ Championship in 2008, with Felipe Massa missing out on the Drivers’ Crown by one point to Lewis Hamilton, on the last lap of the last race in Brazil.

After firing up the F1-75, Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto said: “This is a very special moment, more so than at similar occasions in previous years.

“The F1-75 is a completely new car and is the culmination of a journey we all started together a few years back, working as a united and determined team.”

The F1-75 official launch takes place on 17 February at 14.00 CET.
