Ferrari become first team to announce launch date for 2024 challenger
Ferrari will unveil the Formula 1 car they hope can help them take the fight to world champions Red Bull in 2024 on Tuesday, February 13.
The Italian team are the first to publicly reveal their 2024 launch date but they have chosen not to release any specific details about their launch plans.
The launch will take place just eight days before the start of pre-season testing, which runs across three days in Bahrain from February 21-23.
Team Principal Fred Vasseur says Ferrari are changing “95% of the components of the car” which finished third in the constructors’ championship behind Red Bull and Mercedes.
The 2024 campaign will be Vasseur’s second season at the helm of the Prancing Horse, and the third car built in Maranello to sweeping new regulations introduced in 2022.
Ferrari will, for a fourth straight season, field Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz, who was the only non-Red Bull driver to score a victory in 2023 when he triumphed in Singapore.
Both drivers are out of contract at the end of the season, with talks ongoing with both parties regarding an extension into 2025 and beyond.
