Ferrari takes wraps off its 2019 F1 car, the SF90H, at Maranello

Ferrari has unveiled its 2019 Formula 1 challenger, the SF90H, the car with which it hopes to end its decade-long title drought.

Ferrari has not won a Drivers’ title since 2007 and last year marked the 10th anniversary of its most recent Constructors’ win.

It 2018 campaign was its most successful of the ongoing drought as it took six victories, but it ultimately fell short, missing out to Mercedes, while Sebastian Vettel was beaten by Lewis Hamilton.

Ferrari enters 2019 with a refreshed set-up, having appointed Mattia Binotto as Team Principal, with protégé Charles Leclerc recruited to partner Vettel in the driver line-up.

Leclerc, backed by Ferrari since 2016, impressed during his rookie campaign with Sauber last year, capping a rise that came off the back of successive titles in GP3 and Formula 2.

Ferrari has taken on title partnership from Philip Morris’ Mission Winnow project, with the branding featuring prominently on the SF90H, which has been named to reflect the 90th anniversary of Scuderia Ferrari's founding.
