Ferrari have revamped their car for their home race this weekend, adding yellow highlights and the manufacturer’s classic logo.
The ‘F lunga’ Ferrari logo appears in yellow on the F1-75s rear wing. Other aspects of the car’s livery have also been tweaked.
Yellow flares have been added to the front wing, license plates, halo, engine cover and rear wing endplates. The team says the changes are being made to this race only to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Monza circuit, which opened in 1922.
Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto said the track, which has hosted all the world championships since 1950, the Italian Grand Prix, was “a legendary motorsport venue”.
“I believe the Italian Grand Prix is special for all Italian teams, especially for us and for Formula 1 in general.”
The team will be hoping to deliver their first victory to the home fans since Charles Leclerc won the tournament three years ago.
“One of the reasons all teams love coming here is the fans. Tifosi are inquisitive and knowledgeable. They can be wild too and personally, I will never forget witnessing the track invasion from the pit wall after Charles won here in 2019. They give you all their love, support you even when things don’t go your way and push you to do better and better.
“It’s a very special feeling to see them rush to stand at the bottom of the podium and this weekend, we’ll do everything we can to give them the result they want.”
Leclerc, his team-mate Carlos Sainz-Jnr and the rest of the Ferrari crew will wear a modified yellow team kit this weekend.
