Ferrari F1 Car

Ferrari SF16-H F1 Car

The Formula One season will begin next week with the Australian Grand Prix on March 19th. For this season Ferrari has a new competition machine in the SF16-H and it looks like it could be very potent.

In fact it may be able to give the Mercedes F1 car a run for its money. Add that to the fact that former champion Sebastian Vettel will be driving for Scuderia Ferrari from the beginning of the season and they should be much more competitive.

Ferrari has a history of success in Formula 1 and anything less than a championship this year will not be thought of fondly in Maranello. It has been since 2007 that a Scuderia Ferrari driver last managed a driver’s championship and 2008 since they last took home the manufacturer’s crown. Ferrari is not happy with such a long absence of championships and will look to rectify that this season.

We’ll follow the F1 season and see if they can come out on top. Until then we’ll just share this video of time lapsed footage showing the SF16-H race car as it gets its sponsorship stickers applied. It is amazing the team that it takes and all the work involved to get the car looking just right for the all important sponsors.
