Maranello – Ferrari officially launched the car they would rely on to navigate the competition Formula 1 2015 season, SF15-T. SF15-T is expected to help the Ferrari stand at racecourse.
Ferrari launched the SF15-T at their headquarters in Maranello, Italy, Friday (January 30, 2015). In this launch event, attended two riders who will sit behind the wheel of SF15-T throughout the 2015 season, Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen.
SF15-T is the first car designed entirely by Ferrari technical director James Allison. SF15-T is also the first Ferrari car in the era of new management under the leadership of President Sergio Marchionne and team principal Maurizio Arrivabene.
After last season did not win a victory, Ferrari hopes to restore their glory with SF15-T. Minimum target ‘Prancing Horse’ is to cut the lag from Mercedes.
“Last year we had a car that bad and can not win. I love cars this year in terms of aesthetics, but I do not know about the performance. I think this is really sexy,” says Arrivabene quoted Crash.
“Philosophy is made by Ferrari Enzo Ferrari, so that we do throughout the winter this is to raise team spirit and our passion has been lost. We have to work together to win, which is our target,” he continued.
“The rider must work together as teammates and the team. I want to avoid talking about the individual.. I want us to work as a team to work together and move forward,” says Arrivabene.
In order to comply with the new regulations, SF15-T has a nose that is longer than the car last year. SF15-T also adopt aggressive sidepod concept.
However, a more important change lies in the power unit. This section is one of the weak points of Ferrari in the 2014 season, which makes them unable to compensate for the Mercedes.
SF15-T will go down to the track for the first time in F1 official test held at the Jerez circuit starting Sunday (February 01, 2015) tomorrow.
