Ferrari launches 2018 SF71H

Ferrari is targeting its first Formula One title in a decade after unveiling a striking 2018 car.

The SF71H is the 64th single-seater car designed and produced by Ferrari to compete in Formula 1®.

For the first time since 2009, the Ferrari features an extensively red livery following the loss of major sponsor Santander. The halo, which is mandatory this year, has a red fairing and a Ferrari badge placed on the front.

Rule changes introduced last season led to the introduction of significant aerodynamic modifications and wider tyres, all aimed at increasing performance. Therefore the new 2018 Ferrari F1® car has been created to make the most of the experience gained last year.

Compared to 2017’s SF70H, the wheelbase has been changed slightly, with the side dimensions also revised along with the cooling system.

The suspension follows the tried and tested practice of using push-rods at the front and pull-rods at the rear, however, their design has been updated based on experience gained during the first season running the wider tyres.
