Ferrari have launched their 2017 machinery – the SF70-H
The car was revealed online and features a unique wing, attached to the shark fin – which has become somewhat of a staple of 2017 Formula One cars. The livery of the SF70-H features less white than was present on its 2016 predecessor, the SF16-H. The car is the 63rd single-seater designed by Ferrari to take part in F1.
Ferrari maintain the same driver line-up as last season for 2017. Four-time World Champion Sebastian Vettel is joined once again by 2007 Champion Kimi Raikkonen. The pair scored 398 points between them in 2016, and finished 3rd overall in the Constructors’ Championship. The Italian team failed to score a single win last year.
A year of regulation changes could give the Scuderia a clean slate for 2017, but will it be enough to beat Mercedes and Red Bull?
What do you think to the SF70-H? Will Ferrari score any wins in 2017? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
