Ferrari officially presents their 2022 F1 contender, the F1-75

Ferrari has officially revealed its 2022 championship contender, the F1-75 to the world ahead of the 2022 Formula 1 season.

Ferrari has unveiled their 2022 contender, the F1-75, which honors the Italian manufacturer’s 75-year history while also aiming to return the Scuderia to championship victory.

The launch event that was held at the Italian outfit’s Maranello factory on Thursday afternoon, featured Ferrari drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz with team boss Mattia Binotto also gracing the event.

Ferrari’s F1-75 was perhaps the most anticipated Formula One vehicle ahead of the 2022 season, as it debuted today with a red and black livery evocative of the team’s late 1980s and early 1990s F1 challengers.

The all new car now wears a deeper red robe with black front and rear wings, as well as black accents on the lower bodywork. The new livery further emphasizes the noticeable, but expected, lack of Philip Morris International or Mission Winnow branding.

In comparison to Aston Martin and McLaren’s 2022 concepts, the F1-75’s concept which was overseen by David Sanchez with the support of chassis engineers Enrico Cardile and Fabio Montecchi, boasts a narrow nose and what look to be smaller sidepods.

“We have tackled the challenge of this project with an innovative approach,” said Scuderia Ferrari boss Mattia Binotto.

“Because apart from the requirements of the completely new technical regulations we believe that we had to take on this exercise with an open mind.”

“It called on all our know-how our creativity and above all our commitment. This is what I would call a brave Ferrari because we have interpreted the rules thinking outside the box.”

Ferrari is on its longest winless streak since the early 1990s, having gone two seasons without a victory and without winning a championship since 2008.

After a bad year in 2020, when it finished sixth overall, it improved in 2021 to finish third in the Constructors’ Championship, beating out McLaren. Over the course of the 22-race season, it earned five podiums and two pole positions.
