Scuderia Ferrari have revealed the brand new Ferrari SF71H today, joining big rivals Mercedes in the revealing of their new 2018 Grand Prix challenger... Featuring a slight redesign of the colour scheme used in recent seasons as the Prancing Horse return to the traditional all red livery of Ferrari past, the new SF71H is a striking and surprisingly neat looking racing car, one in which the Italian legends will be keen to see push the Maranello one step closer to a considered championship challenge in the year ahead. "The SF71H represents an evolution of last year’s car, which was already a good project," explained Technical Director, Mattia Binotto. "We’ve tried to retain the strengths. Our strengths I would say first is aggressiveness in some of the concepts. "We designed a car that was somehow performing very well on low speed circuits, but we knew we had to work on new areas of development. For example, trying to develop the car to be strong in performance on the high-speed circuits, but also on reliability. "What has changed? The main difference is we have a slightly longer wheelbase compared to last year. We have the sidepods, the radiator ducts which are even more aggressive and innovative than what we had last year. Overall, the entire team did a fantastic job in terms of packaging to be very tight. If you look at the body it’s a very narrow body." Just hours after the launch of arch rivals Mercedes, the potential two front runners of the coming season are out in the open, ready for testing to begin in Barcelona next week..
