Ferrari debut fire up of new F1-75

Ferrari has enjoyed "a very special moment" after firing up its new F1-75 for the first time at its factory in Maranello.

The internal 'launch' took place just after 4pm GMT under the watchful gaze of team principal Mattia Binotto and what the Scuderia has described as "strictly necessary staff due to the anti-Covid 19 security measures".

The introduction of Ferrari's power unit from the Russian Grand Prix onwards proved to be a gamechanger last season as it allowed the team to overhaul McLaren in the battle for third place in the constructors' championship.

It is anticipated if Ferrari has managed to correctly interpret the new aerodynamic regulations that come into force for this season then in tandem with the PU, it could again be in title contention this year.

The latest PU - 066/7 - was fired up for 30 seconds, which you can catch a listen to below.

Binotto said: "This is a very special moment, more than has happened in the past on similar occasions.

"The F1-75 is a completely new car. With this machine we complete a journey that we started together a couple of years ago, working as a team, united and determined."

The car is to be officially launched on February 17.
