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.

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.
