Ferrari unveils new SF70H car for upcoming 2017 Formula One season


FERRARI have taken the covers off the car they hope will end Mercedes’ recent dominance of Formula 1.

The car, named the SF70-H, was unveiled online ahead of the team’s filming day at their Fiorano test track when Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen will each drive the car for the first time.

Ferrari’s new challenger features a distinctive mini wing across the top of the shark fin-shaped engine cover, which has been a feature on most 2017 cars revealed so far. The sidepods are also aggressively shaped with high, narrow air inlets.

“The lengthened nose and the arrow-shaped wing are a consequence of the regulations, as is the obvious fin on the engine cover and the more complex aero appendages ahead of the air intakes on the sidepods, whose unusual shape was designed in harmony with the front crash structure,” said a Ferrari statement.
