Ferrari has revealed the dates for two launches ahead of the 2021 Formula 1 season, with separate presentations for the team and “improved” SF21.
The Italian outfit confirmed the first event regarding the team would take place on February 26, while the first look of its 2021 car comes just two days before pre-season testing on March 10.
It now means six of the 10 teams have announced their launch dates, with only Red Bull, Aston Martin, Haas and Alpine yet to confirm its plans.
Ferrari also released a short clip of it firing up the 2021 car at its factory in Maranello, with team principal Mattia Binotto addressing the team beforehand.
“Our 2021 season starts here,” said Binotto. “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.
“We must work in a determined and focused way aware of where we were and where we want to go.”
Ferrari is heading into this year aiming to bounce back from its lowest finish in the constructors’ championship for 40 years.
The controversy surrounding the legality of its 2019 power unit resulted in an FIA investigation, before a series of technical directives were issued and led to its performance dropping dramatically.
After deciding to partway with four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel after six years, the Scuderia has signed Carlos Sainz to partner Charles Leclerc in an revised driver line-up.
