Excitement continues to build ahead of the 2019 Formula 1 season and Ferrari have ramped up the anticipation after sharing a video of the team's 2019 challenger being fired up for the fist time. McLaren did likewise this week as teams preparations for the year to come reach the closing stretch…
Maranello has seen a host of changes ahead of the new season as Ferrari look to improve on another pair of runners-up spots behind Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton in 2018, Sebastian Vettel falling short yet again.
Alongside Vettel in the driver line-up is Monegasque prodigy Charles Leclerc, who will become Ferrari's second-youngest driver in history when the lights go out at the Australian Grand Prix in March.
Changes have also been made at the very top of the team, with Mattia Binotto replacing Maurizio Arrivabene as team principal.
Binotto previously led the Scuderia's technical team and was seen as a chief architect in Ferrari's ability to close the gap to Mercedes in the power stakes last year, and arguably nudge ahead for spells, although the team could not capitalise fully.
