Ferrari launches 2018 F1 vehicle

Lewis Hamilton

Mercedes have revealed the new vehicle they hope will claim a record-equalling fifth consecutive world championship double this year.

The SF71H's livery is more predominantly red than the recent years' red-and-white scheme.

Vettel added: "I don't think the halo will bother, I think it's much less intrusive than I thought".

The 2017 Mercedes and Ferrari were notably different design concepts, but Ferrari made clear at its launch that this year it has moved towards the longer-wheelbase philosophy favoured by its key rival.

"We all like divas, but sometimes she was a bit hard to understand and this is the area where we worked the most, trying to understand and preserve the speed in the auto and find more driveability".

"The amount of effort that has gone in, the attention to detail in so many areas, it's impressive".

Team Principal Maurizio Arrivabene said the vehicle was an example of "Italian excellence". "I think that's the answer we all want to get so we go from there".

The presentation, online and through social media channels, came on the same day that Mercedes were showing off their new F1 W09 auto.

And Hamilton, whose Mercedes team also broke cover with their new vehicle at Silverstone on Thursday, admitted he could not rule out the prospect of further fireworks this season.

The vehicle has now a longer wheelbase in the front to extract a more aerodynamic effect, and the sidepods have changed dramatically in comparison to last year's model. We have the sidepods and the radiator ducts which are even more aggressive, more innovative compared to past year. Vettel will team up with veteran Finn Kimi Raikkonen for a fourth successive campaign.

"When it looks nice, the speed is also there". We try to retain the strengths, and some of the strengths I would say are the aggressiveness of the concept we designed, a auto that was performing very well on low-speed circuits.
