Russian Grand Prix – Rendezvous on the Black Sea

Posted: 25.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Smooth tarmac, high fuel consumption, every type of corner: that’s the Russian GP

Maranello, 25 April – Next weekend’s race will be the fourth running of the Russian Grand Prix. But if you think that single-seater racing is all recent history for the biggest country in the world, then think again. There was a project to build a Formula 1 car here when it was the Soviet Union, during the Cold War period. However, today’s link to the sport is the Sochi circuit. Despite the fact that its mountainous coast enjoys a mild climate, the town hosted the Winter Olympics in 2014 and since then it has welcomed the arrival of Formula 1. The track is 5.848 kilometres in length, making it a touch shorter than Silverstone and a bit longer than Suzuka and Monza. One of its standout corners is the wide semi-circular Turn 3, taken flat out by the new generation of F1 cars. The surface is very smooth, but the layout means fuel consumption is high, while the final sector has no less than six corners where traction is important. Pirelli is bringing along its three softest compounds, the yellow Soft, red Supersoft and purple Ultrasoft. To date, the Russian GP has not looked too kindly on Scuderia Ferrari, although last year, Seb Vettel was second fastest in qualifying. However, he then had to take a grid penalty and was later hit by Daniil Kvyat, while Kimi Raikkonen drove a great race to finish on the podium.

Ferrari 812 Superfast sets a new benchmark for performance and luxury

April 19th, 2017, Shanghai — Ferrari announced the first public debut of its most powerful production car to date, the 800-cv 812 Superfast today at Auto Shanghai. As the only manufacturer to have continuously produced sports car with 12-cylinder engines, the unveiling of this flagship V12 Berlinetta is particularly significant. This reveal of the 812 Superfast proudly represents a new chapter in the Ferrari story that began 70 years ago back in 1947.

Powered by a new 6.5-litre V12, the 812 Superfast represents the benchmark in the mid-front-engined sports car segment, achieving its maximum power output at 8,500 rpm, which ensures the kind of thrilling top-end performance that is exclusive to Ferrari’s V12s. Maximum torque is 718 Nm @ 7,000 rpm, a significant 80% of which is already available at 3,500 rpm, improving driveability and pick-up at low revs.

The 812 Superfast is striking for both its highly innovative design and aero package, as well as its unparalleled handling. It is the first Ferrari to introduce Electric Power Steering (EPS) which, in line with the Ferrari tradition, is used to fully exploit the performance potential of the car. The introduction of the Virtual Short Wheelbase 2.0 system (PCV) combines electric front-wheel steering assistance with the mechanical concept based on tyre dimensions and the rear-wheel steering. This is all integrated with the vehicle dynamics control systems, based on Version 5.0 of the SSC, with the aim of improving the agility and response time to steering wheel inputs. The 812 Superfast will be delivered to the customer in the fourth quarter this year with the price started from RMB 5,388,000.

Ferrari’s 70 years of unrivalled achievements were left in no doubt with a display of the LaFerrari Aperta and one of only 209 to ever be built. The limited-edition spider version – the most powerful naturally-aspirated spider from Ferrari – retains the same characteristic exhilaration as the coupé. All of the planned LaFerrari Aperta, have already been sold.

Completing the range of Ferrari models on display in Shanghai, were the iconic 488 GTB; the four-seater V8-powered GTC4Lusso T; and a dazzling expression of Ferrari’s sporty DNA with its retractable hard top, the California T. Showcasing the full extent of personalization on offer from the Tailor-made team in Maranello were two cars including a Verde coloured 488 Spider and, exclusively for VIP visitors to the Tailor-made showroom a Rosso Scuderia coloured 488 GTB inspired by the acclaimed Tricolore livery made famous by the Ferrari 458 GT2.

Beyond Auto Shanghai 2017, Ferrari is demonstrating its commitment to China with a wide range of ongoing 70th anniversary celebrations across China during the year ahead. After opening with Ferrari Owners Club of Hong Kong “70 Mile Rally” on March 18, from May 28 to 29, the world’s most popular track experience, “Ferrari Racing Days” will return to the Shanghai International Circuit allowing celebrations to continue for owners and enthusiasts. In August, owners will then have an opportunity to embark on an unforgettable seven-day journey setting off from Xining, Qinghai for an incredible 1,000 kilometres journey before arriving at the fabled Yu Men Pass. In a tribute to Ferrari journeys of years past, the expedition will retrace part of the magical route previously covered by the “15,000 Red Miles” in 2005. This year is sure to provide more milestones for the “Cavallino Rampante”.

 

 

Bahrain Test – Sebastian brings Bahrain test to a close

Posted: 19.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

After testing for Pirelli, a day dedicated to development

Sakhir, 19 April – This time there was no need to extend the test session: at 18h00 local time, (17h00 CET,) Seb Vettel parked the SF70H in the pits at the end of the day’s work. 67 laps were completed, the best in 1’31’”574, set on the Soft compound. Yesterday, the Bahrain GP winner had been testing for Pirelli, while today it was a normal programme of development for the season. “It would be nice to have done even more,” said Sebastian at the end of the day. “But today we had a few little problems in the morning, which is normal for testing and then, in the afternoon, we lost some time when there was an electrical black-out in our garage.” That’s not unheard of during testing, when so many sets of tyres are used that the tyre blankets can soak up quite a bit of energy. “In any case, driving this car is always a pleasure,” concluded Seb. “The times don’t mean much, given we don’t know what programmes the others are running.”

That marks the end of the first in-season test of 2017. The next one takes place in July in Hungary.

 

Bahrain Test – Antonio, a whole different feeling

Posted: 18.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Giovinazzi’s first drive in the SF70H; 93 laps in Bahrain

Sakhir, 18 April – “I enjoyed every single lap.” On every one of the 93 times that he sped past the Scuderia Ferrari pits, Antonio Giovinazzi must have had a big grin on his face under the helmet. It’s true that he’d already experienced a Prancing Horse Formula 1 car in Fiorano and is au fait with what Formula 1 is all about in 2017. However, the Ferrari he drove in that first test was the SF15-T, not bad for a first run but two years old. And when it came to this past winter testing and the first two GPs of the season, that experience came at the wheel of a Sauber.

But, truth be told, for an Italian driver, the first “real” day was surely this Tuesday in Bahrain. Antonio’s day began with a massage and some breakfast and that was followed with no less than nine hours of testing and even as we write, the technical debrief is still ongoing. Antonio showed maturity and professionalism at the wheel, setting a best lap of 1’31”984 on Supersoft tyres, although he spent more time running the Mediums and also when downloading information with his engineers. “To drive the car that won the last race and is leading the world championship, working with the Scuderia Ferrari engineers and mechanics, is not just a great feeling, it’s a dream I’ve had since I was little and racing in karts. And today it came true.”

The reality of testing however could be seen elsewhere, as Seb Vettel was working late into the evening, to make up for time lost earlier in the day, as he was at the wheel of another SF70H, working on a separate programme, tyre testing for Pirelli.

Bahrain Grand Prix – Sakhir, 16 April 2017

Posted: 16.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Maurizio Arrivabene: “Today’s victory was an important one, achieved thanks to the great efforts of all the guys at the track and back in Maranello. For the whole weekend, the team demonstrated courage, determination and a little bit of madness. This is all part of our DNA, characteristics which 70 years ago saw the birth of Ferrari. Courage and determination were needed to tackle a weekend like this, in which we expected to encounter a few difficulties in qualifying, which is why, based on good long run data on Friday, we prepared as well as possible for the race. In order to do this you also need to use some madness… Sebastian drove a really great race, demonstrating once again all his class. Kimi was caught up in traffic at the start and then he certainly wasn’t helped by the arrival of the Safety Car. The SF70H proved itself to be strong also in these conditions, at a track which requires above all power and good traction. The tyres worked very well, which allowed us to fully exploit our very good strategy. And now it’s time to concentrate on the next round of the World Championship, the Russian Grand Prix in Sochi.”

Mattia Binotto: “It wasn’t an easy weekend, because, as qualifying showed, Mercedes still has the upper hand on Saturdays and definitely more so here than in the previous two races. That means we must go through a lot of data and perhaps this will help us become stronger in the future. We are very happy about the race result: we definitely showed that today we had more speed than the Mercedes, especially on the Qualifying tyres. This can be seen by the fact that we have less tyre wear than our main competitors.”

Sebastian Vettel: “A great result thanks to all the team! At the start, it was important for me to get second place, and I managed. Also, we got everything right with the strategy. We decided to pit early and this tactics proved to be working. Towards, the end, I tried to manage the gap I had over Lewis. I expected him to charge through, of course I was concerned, with all the traffic ahead of me. But it the end it was all OK. The car was like a dream to drive today. I felt right from the beginning that we had the speed to win today. I had a good feeling yesterday already, and it was just confirmed today. The lap back to pits was so sweet, with all the fireworks around, and I really savored it. Tonight we enjoy the moment, but tomorrow we’ll be back at work. I haven’t changed my mind: to become world champion, you must first beat the Mercedes We’ll take it race after race.”

Kimi Raikkonen: “In a way, a lot of good things happened this weekend, but the end result is still disappointing. The car was working pretty nicely and to be honest I expected that. Today I had a bad start and because of that, the first two corners were really bad; obviously after that I was catching up, I got past Massa reasonably quickly. Then I did my pit stop, but I was unlucky with the Safety Car. The overall feeling was good, I was fast but obviously the time lost at the start did not help: we put ourselves in a difficult position. I feel that we are absolutely doing the right things, and in the big picture we are pretty much where we want to be, but we still need to fine-tune a few things; it’s all about putting the lap together. We need to start more at the front and then our races will be a lot easier. I am happy for Seb and for all the team.”

 

Bahrain Grand Prix – Scuderia Ferrari wins in Bahrain

Posted: 16.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Sebastian takes his second win from three races. Kimi is fourth

Sakhir, 16 April 2017 –Sebastian Vettel produced a gutsy drive this evening to win the Bahrain Grand Prix, having started from third on the grid. His victory was also down to the strategic calls from the Scuderia Ferrari pit wall. Kimi Raikkonen finished fourth, despite encountering a few difficulties. He fought back to finish just off the podium. After the first three rounds, Ferrari lead the Drivers’ Championship with Seb, on 61 points, and the Constructors in which it has 102 points. This is Seb’s fifth won in Prancing Horse colours.

 

Bahrain Grand Prix – Statement from Ferrari President Mr. Sergio Marchionne

Posted: 16.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

It is, of course, hugely satisfying to be back on the top step of the podium with Seb. More importantly, however, we are now completely confident that our victory in Melbourne wasn’t just a one-off and that we will be at the forefront of this World Championship until the last. We finally have a competitive car to count on and it is important to recognize the speed with which we implemented the developments demanded for each new race. All this is the fruit of superb work at the track and in Maranello, so my compliments not just to Seb for his achievements in Bahrain, but also to the whole team. Congratulations to Kimi too on a good race. That said, we are well aware we have a long road ahead and know that if we want to get to the most important finish-line of all, we cannot stint on our commitment and focus for a second.

 

Bahrain Grand Prix – “Tomorrow it should be closer”

Posted: 15.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Seb hopeful as car looks better for the race

Overall, it has been a good day. Yesterday I couldn’t get the right feeling, I kept sliding too much. We made some minor tweaks on the set-up and the car felt better today, I was quite happy with the balance. But in qualifying, after seeing what the gap was at the end of my first run in Q3, I wasn’t so happy, so I tried it all and maybe pushed a bit too much. This is a circuit where you can easily overshoot it. Today, we were losing a bit everywhere around the lap, perhaps more than usual down the straights. But tomorrow it should be closer, and hopefully we’ll have a tight race. The car feels good for Sunday.

 

Bahrain Grand Prix – “Not what we wanted yet”

Posted: 15.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Kimi: car has a lot of potential, difficult to unlock in qualifying

The car was good overall, I thought there was a lot of potential, but for many little reasons we never really got the time out of it. The final result is far from what we wanted, but that’s how it ended up today. I have been struggling to find the right set up: all in all it has been better here than it’s been the last few races, but in qualifying, when we start to push, it is not what we wanted yet. Tomorrow is another day, the grid position is not ideal and the race is going to be quite tricky. So let’s try to make a good start , make the right decisions and take the best out of it.

In track conditions that were different to those that will prevail during this evening’s qualifying, Vettel used one set of new Mediums and one set of new Softs, while Raikkonen ran one set of new Supersofts and one of used Mediums.

The German did 10 laps and the Finn 9. Qualifying begins at 18h00 local time, 17h00 CET. Temperatures: track 38°, air 37°

 

Bahrain Grand Prix – “We still need to do better”

Posted: 14.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Seb “not entirely happy” but car feels good on quick lap

I can’t explain why the car stopped altogether, but we were able to recover, restart the engine in the garage and, fortunately, it happened at the end of the lap. Today it was not our best day for us and we still need to do better. The car feels good on a single lap though, and as for race simulation, we can further improve for tomorrow. Overall, I am not entirely happy with my long runs, but they were OK after all, and we also were caught a bit in traffic. Now let’s see what tomorrow brings.

 

Bahrain Grand Prix – “The guys did a good job”

Posted: 14.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Kimi pleased with team fixing the car in time for P2

It’s far too early to say what we can do here and conditions were tricky today. We had an issue that stopped us in very early part of the first session; this issue had nothing to do with the engine, but rather with the turbo area. The guys did a good job in fixing the car in order to be ready for the second practice. The day could have been a bit better, but that’s how it goes. I like this circuit, but there’s nothing more special here than in other places. Obviously it’s very hot and this can be a little bit tricky for the tires. As usual on Friday there’s a lot of work to be done to be ready tomorrow.

 

Bahrain Grand Prix – Social comments – Kimi

Posted: 13.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Sakhir, 13 April – “You and me are in agreement, we think the same way about a lot of things and that’s the most important thing.” Kimi Raikkonen and his race engineer Dave Greenwood get on really well and not just when it comes to work. You can see just this on the eve of a Grand Prix in which the heat, the variations in temperature from day to night, management of the tyres and the car, are all vital elements of this weekend.

Posted: 13.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Sakhir, 13 April – Rhythm, braking, Bahrain peculiarities are just some of the words used by Seb Vette to describe the Sakhir track when talking to his race engineer, Riccardo Adami. We eavesdropped on their conversation round a small table as their chat revealed how when two people have been working together for a few years at Ferrari can develop an understanding that goes beyond just the technical details. To the extent, that in the end, it’s Ricky who surprises his driver…

 

 

 

Bahrain Grand Prix – The challenge hots up

Posted: 12.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Temperatures round the 40 degree mark in Bahrain

Maranello, 12 April – In a few days, Formula 1 faces a complete change of scene. From the metropolis to the desert, from the cold and damp of Shanghai to a sweltering Sakhir and temperatures around 40 degrees. The only thing the Chinese and Bahrain Grands Prix have in common is that they both first appeared on the calendar in 2004. The circuits have very little in common: while Shanghai is all flowing corners, the Bahrain International Circuit juxtaposes straights with hairpins and heavy braking. Engine performance, traction out of the corners and stability under braking make up the technical challenge here. After a good result on Sunday, Scuderia Ferrari has travelled to the small archipelago of Bahrain – it measures just 765 square kilometres – in the Persian Gulf. The first back-to-back races of the year have involved a demanding schedule, with all the work of packing up quickly and sending the freight from China in a very short space of time. The race is run at night, although it’s still hot at that time and afterwards, some of the team will stay on for two days of testing on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Chinese Grand Prix – Shanghai, 9 April 2017

Posted: 09.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Maurizio Arrivabene: “Today, on a track and in conditions which were very different from those we had in Melbourne, we proved that we have a strong car. Sebastian drove a very good race, and the fact that the safety car came out right after his first tire change certainly didn’t help. Perhaps, without that interruption, the result could have been even better. Now all the team is already focused onto the next race in Bahrain.”

Sebastian Vettel: “We can be happy with today’s results. The race was a lot of fun, very entertaining. Conditions were tricky at the start, you never know what can happen in those moments, so I was perhaps a bit too conservative. Then we chose to change tires since the track was quickly drying out, so that we could take advantage from the slicks; but luck was not on our side as the safety car came in right after. I can’t say how much this affected the final result, it was still a long way from there to the finish, but I think it had an effect. From then I had to work my way through the field, and I had a tense wheel-to-wheel fight with Ricciardo. I like this way of overtaking, when gaining position comes at a price and not simply by opening up the DRS. At that moment though, the gap to Lewis had widened, and I kept pushing to keep some pressure on him, while asking my engineer what pace was needed for me to catch him. I think that pace-wise we were a match today, sometimes he was faster, sometimes I was: if we can fight with Mercedes also in Bahrain that will be again good news. We can still improve.”

Kimi Raikkonen: “It was not a very strong race, the car felt good with fresh tires, but we seemed to lose the front very quickly and I was struggling; in a place like this that’s very tricky and gives a lot of laptime away. I feel that, even with that, we should have had a better result: maybe we could have changed the tires a bit earlier, but it’s always easy to speak after the race, now we have look at the data and understand. This result is far from ideal but this is what we have got today, hopefully next week we can make things better.”

 

Chinese Grand Prix – Scuderia Ferrari second in China

Posted: 09.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Seb takes the runner-up spot with Kimi fifth. The Safety Car was key

Shanghai, 9 April – Scuderia Ferrari leaves the Chinese Grand Prix with a further 28 points to its name, thanks to a second place for Sebastian Vettel and a fifth for Kimi Raikkonen. The race got underway on a damp track, with Seb making an early stop to change from Intermediate to Soft tyres, but immediately after that the Safety Car came out because of Giovinazzi’s accident and wiped out the advantage of that tactical move, as all the drivers had to come through pit lane. Seb then put on a show, passing Kimi, Ricciardo and Verstappen, before closing on the leader Hamilton. Right from next weekend, F1 is back in action at Bahrain’s Sakhir circuit.

 

Chinese Grand Prix – “This result is good news”

Posted: 08.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Seb on first row says there are ‘lots of chances’ for the race

Shanghai, April 8th – “Tomorrow is another day” said Seb over the radio, sending thanks to all the team at the end of his qualifying lap which yielded Position 2 on the grid.“It was a bit closer than in Australia, so a good session overall with lots of chances for tomorrow. We’ll see what the race can bring, with the different conditions and everything. Of course I would have liked to be even closer, knowing that the Mercedes would be very strong in Q3, as they proved to be. We had some luck with Valtteri, because when you’re a thousand of a second apart, it could be one way or the other. I was happy with my lap, even if I braked a bit too early for the last corner, hit the kerb hard and had to wait for the car to settle. That’s where I lost a bit of time, but not all the gap to Lewis. There wasn’t much more I could have gained. So this result on a totally different track, with conditions significantly cooler than Melbourne, is definitely good news. The confidence is there, I trust what the car is telling me and she seems to respond to what I tell her. It’s a good match but we need to improve further.

 

Chinese Grand Prix – “Not bad, but can do better”

Kimi after 4th grid place: details need to be improved

Shanghai, April 8th – Kimi Raikkonen had been consistently fast throughout qualifying, then lost out a little bit right at the end, where hundredths of seconds make the difference. He ended up with fourth on the grid. “I’m not that surprised from the result after strong performance in Q2, because in the end I was struggling a bit with the front end, especially in the first corners; in Turn 3 there was not much we could gain. It has been tricky to get everything right, with the limited running we had yesterday, and we’re still not 100 per cent where we want to be, up there in front. There are some details in the set-up that need to be improved, and as you push more they become more apparent, but it’s already better than in Melbourne. Handling-wise the car wasn’t bad, even though I had experienced understeer in the beginning and then, for whatever reason, it changed to oversteer. In Q2 I made two runs, because we had tires available so why not go out and see what the other cars were doing? Conditions will be different for tomorrow and there will be a bit of guessing for everyone if it rains, so we’ll see”.

Vettel second fastest, while Kimi starts from fourth spot

Shanghai, 8 April –Yet again it was all very close in the battle for qualifying for tomorrow’s Chinese Grand Prix. At the end of the session, Sebastian Vettel found himself in second place thanks to a lap in 1’31”864, which is 186 thousandths off the pole time, set by Lewis Hamilton. Kimi Raikkonen is on the second row, with the fourth fastest time of 1’32”140. The two SF70H cars comfortably made it through Q1, only running the Soft tyres, before switching to the Supersofts in the second and third parts. Qualifying took place in variable conditions, with a strong wind blowing. No rain fell, however that is on the cards for tomorrow’s race.

 

Chinese GP – Bad weather rules the day in China

Posted: 07.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Seb and Kimi complete no timed laps. Practice a wash-out for everyone

Shanghai, 7 April – Three laps in the first session, none in the second. Rain and fog, or more accurately smog, meant the medical helicopter was unable to fly, so that Friday’s practice was effectively cancelled. In the morning, Seb Vettel went out on track just twice, once with the extreme wet tyres and once on intermediates, just to get an idea of the track condition. Kimi Raikkonen did a single lap on the extreme wets, but there was no point in doing more. In the afternoon, the entire field stayed in the garages, with the circuit in constant contact with the Shanghai city airport, but as landing there was deemed impossible, the start of the session was repeatedly delayed until there was no time left as the finish time of 15.30 approached.

Vettel’s main concern was for the fans: “A shame about today, especially for the people who came here to watch, but what else could we do? Over the past few days, there have been so many fans and so many messages from people saying how delighted they were with the result in Australia. Let’s see what we can do tomorrow and let’s hope we have the right set-up, otherwise it will be difficult. However, I’d add that I’m confident we can do it and tomorrow the weather will be better.”

Kimi’s comments were equally succinct: “Today we learned nothing: after the installation lap we wanted to go back out on track, but the session was interrupted. It’s a shame, but it’s the same for everyone. You can’t change the weather and sometimes things like this happen. It was not an ideal day, but even if we had run today, it would have been in the wet and tomorrow it’s not due to rain. So we must wait and see what the weather will be and how things will go.”

 

Chinese Grand Prix – A fresh challenge in China

Posted: 06.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Kimi and Seb: “One race at a time, let’s just try and do well”

Shanghai, April 6th – A new challenge awaits Scuderia Ferrari drivers in China, where teams were welcomed by heavy rain on Thursday . “This circuit is completely different from the one in Melbourne, more of a ‘normal’ track”, says Kimi. “It’s way too early to know how things will go, we haven’t run a single lap yet and the conditions may change very quickly. At the last race in Melbourne the car was feeling good when we were running. The team was very happy for Seb’s win , it was a great result also for all those working at home. We have a good team, but we have only done one race, the season is long, and the tracks are all different. We have to keep doing a good job , improve things and minimize mistakes”.

As for Seb, winning in Melbourne hasn’t changed his feet-on-the-ground attitude: “The real expectations we have is to try and do well. Good conditions and good luck will be important, as well as the set-up of the car. If we can be close to Mercedes that means we can be close to the top: we will just try to do well and then we will see what it will be. We are working better as a team and have improved from last year. We did very well in Australia, but that was only one race. Still, we have potential and can do better”.

 

Chinese Grand Prix – Shanghai: the countdown begins

Posted: 05.04.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Scuderia Ferrari, the winner of the first ever GP held here, is already in China

Maranello, 5 aprile – It’s now a classic on the calendar, but when it was first held in 2004, it caused quite a stir. A Formula 1 race in China would have been unthinkable a few years earlier, even in a city like Shanghai which was the first to open up trade with the West. For the record, Scuderia Ferrari won the maiden event with Rubens Barrichello. Thirteen years later, Scuderia Ferrari is again in Shanghai having travelled there directly from Australia. On arrival, the team encountered spring-like changeable weather and the forecast for the weekend includes a bit of everything including the chance of rain. The Shanghai International Circuit is interesting and demanding, running clockwise, with a very long 1.170 kilometre-long straight and corners that give the tyres a hard time, especially the front left. For this event, Pirelli is providing the Medium, Soft and Supersoft compounds. Shanghai also kicks off the first “back-to-back” of the 2017 season and once the race is over, it will already be time to prepare for the next round at Sakhir in Bahrain, the following weekend.

Australian Grand Prix – Melbourne, 26 March

Maurizio Arrivabene: “A good result today that could have been a great one if we’d managed to get Kimi on the podium too. When we launched the SF70H we referred to it as “Our Ferrari” and indeed today’s win reflects all the effort and hard work put in over the past few months, both in Maranello and at the track. As for Sebastian, he did a great job, as did the whole team in fact. It’s a shame that Kimi struggled in the early stages to get into the right rhythm. Our car went very well on track: it was well balanced and consistent performance from the tyres meant we were able to adopt an aggressive strategy. This is only the first race of the championship: there are still 19 to go and we must maintain a high level of concentration at every Grand Prix, avoiding distractions and, already as from today, we are looking ahead to the next Grand Prix in China.”

Mattia Binotto: “Happy? Yes, definitely. It’s on the track that you reap the rewards of your collective efforts over the winter. It was a busy period during which everyone doubled their energy and effort. We still have 19 challenges ahead of us and today’s race shows how the slightest thing can make the difference between being in front or being behind. Therefore, we must continue to push as hard as possible on development. As for this Melbourne weekend, it was already clear in qualifying that there is little that separates the teams and we knew the race would be very close. The GP was all decided at the pit stops: at that moment, we probably had less tyre degradation than our rivals towards the end of the stint and that meant we were able to stay out on track for longer. From then on, it was a case of bringing home the car in terms of reliability. Seb did an excellent job, while Kimi definitely had a more complicated race, partly because he started from a bit further back on the grid. However, he managed to hold onto this position to the finish and his lap times in the final part of the race showed what he was capable of.”

Sebastian Vettel: “It’s been a great day for us. The team has been working so hard at the track as much as back at the factory. It’s a great feeling. “Grazie mille”, you can’t say much more. The last months have been really intense, it’s been tough to get into the rhythm. It’s just the beginning and there’s still a lot of work going on. This is one of many steps and we have to enjoy what we do. It’s great to see people smiling. Now we have to reset to go to China and try to do a good job.”

Kimi Raikkonen: “In the first stint I struggled a bit with the Ultrasoft tires, but once I switched to the Soft compound the car was behaving really nicely. It was not the most exciting race for me, most of the time I was fuel saving, but when I was pushing the car was fast and I got a really good feeling. Fourth place is a bit disappointing, but we scored some points and Seb’s win is a great result for the whole team. We learned a lot from this weekend: we start from here, with a good package and we pretty much know what we have to do to make the car better.”

It was about time. I am delighted for the team and for our tifosi who stood by us throughout this whole period. We’ve been waiting for this victory for almost a year and a half. Hearing the Italian national anthem again was very moving.

Sebastian  delivered a great race and I am sure Kimi  will be soon up there battling alongside his team-mate. Of course, this victory is something to share with the entire team, both at the circuit and back in Maranello, because teamwork is the only way to achieve major goals.

Congratulations to Antonio for his debut in Formula One.

Now, however, it is absolutely essential to remember that this is not the destination but the first step on a long road that must see us all focused on improving each and every day.

Raikkonen fourth. A great job from the entire team

Melbourne, 26 March –Ten years on from Kimi Raikkonen’s victory at Albert Park, Scuderia Ferrari has returned to winning ways in Melbourne, in the first race of the season. Sebastian Vettel crossed the finish line in first place after 57 laps, in a race whose key moment came on lap 23, when a perfectly executed pit stop for fresh tyres saw him rejoin the track ahead of Lewis Hamilton in the Mercedes.
This is Scuderia Ferrari’s 225th Formula 1 victory, Seb’s 43rd and his fourth with the Maranello team.
Thanks to his fourth place finish, Kimi Raikkonen brought home a further 12 points, so that Scuderia Ferrari now has a total of 37 points in the Constructors’ Championship.

Seb 2nd and Kimi 4th in qualifying in Melbourne: “A great recovery after yesterday”

Melbourne, 25 March – “If we look back twelve months, the progress we have made is clear to see,” said Sebastian Vettel. “We are working well as a team, having had a great winter; a winter of changes, but all for the best.” There are no points given out after qualifying and the 2017 championship has only just begun, but having Seb Vettel on the front row in the SF70H, with a gap to pole down by half a second, does nevertheless mean something. And with Kimi Raikkonen right behind in fourth place, it shows that the overall picture is encouraging. “Good recovery” said Seb over the radio, immediately after posting a time of 1.22”456, which secured him second place on the grid. He was referring to the work of the team that had managed to fix what needed to be fixed in terms of set-up, after Friday’s free practice. As for Kimi, whose best lap was a 1.23”033, his usual honesty meant he didn’t disguise his slight disappointment at being on the second row. “I made life complicated for myself right from the first session: I never managed to put all the sectors together and that cost me lap time. But the car feels strong and I just have to do better.”

 

Australian Grand Prix – Friday for learning

Seb and Kimi working on car balance

Melbourne, 24 March – The first day of a new world championship is always a special event, but for Scuderia Ferrari, practice in Albert Park was simply an opportunity to work through a planned programme. For the SF70H that meant mainly working on set-up and balance. Sebastian and Kimi tried all the specifications of tyre that Pirelli has supplied here, starting on the Soft before then using the Super and Ultrasoft in the second session.

The dirty track conditions and the different fuel loads used make it impossible to give an accurate assessment of the relative performance levels. As Vettel explained at the end of practice, “on Friday, it is always difficult to say much. Anyway, it was nice to be back in the cockpit again. In the first session, we had a few small problems which slowed us down a bit, but things went better in the second one. As for the balance, today wasn’t bad, but there is still room for improvement. The lap times don’t mean anything. Only tomorrow will we find out what the score is.”

Raikkonen expressed pretty much the same sentiments. “We can be pleased, because overall the day didn’t go badly. We learned a lot of things and now we know in which areas we have to improve. As for performance, you cannot compare it to winter testing, partly because this is a bit of an unusual track and doesn’t produce a clear picture of the situation.”

Seb completed 45 laps over the two sessions (10+35,) while Kimi racked up 16 in the first part and 30 in the second.

Melbourne, 23 March – I think nothing is certain. There is a lot of work ahead of us and the car seems to work well. We’ve done a lot of laps, so I think we can be happy but there is no certainties. Nothing has to be taken for granted and the year is long, it’s still March. I don’t know which expectations we have from the outside but inside we have none. We hope to be very high up. That’s our target and we know there’s a lot of work ahead of us. We will focus on the single steps and we have to keep pushing.

 

 

Farewell John – The great Surtees, 1964 World Champion with Ferrari, has passed away

Posted: 10.03.2017 / Source: Ferrari

Maranello, 10 March 2017 – Ferrari has lost one of its greatest drivers. John Surtees has passed away in his native England at the age of 83. Born in Tatsfield on February 11 1934, Big John, as he was fondly known, won the Formula 1 World Championship in 1964 with Ferrari, becoming the only driver in history to claim both the F1 and motorcycle grand prix world titles. Surtees raced in 111 Formula 1 Grand Prix, 30 with the Scuderia Ferrari, delivering six victories, four of which were with the Maranello team between 1963 and 1966. Aside from his outstanding Formula 1 performance, Surtees contributed several victories to Ferrari’s success in the 1963 and 1965 World Sportscar Championship. All at Ferrari send their heartfelt condolences to his family at this sad time.

Ferrari’s Anniversary Celebrations get underway

Posted: 10.03.2017 / Source: Ferrari

With re-enactment of 125 S driving through the Maranello gates

Maranello (Italy), 10 March 2017 – On March 12 1947, Enzo Ferrari fired up the 125 S, the first car to bear his name. That test-drive on the streets of Maranello marked the start of modern Ferrari history. The then-modest factory quickly grew into one of the great internationally-renowned Made in Italy icons. Now, exactly 70 years later, on March 12 2017, Ferrari launches its official celebrations for this milestone anniversary.

To coincide with the official start of the celebrations and to commemorate the events of 70 years ago, Ferrari is also releasing a special video featuring a re-enactment of the first 12-cylinder to sport the Cavallino Rampante on its bonnet, the 125 S, driving through the factory gates on Via Abetone Inferiore and, in doing so, symbolically passing the baton of the Ferrari legacy to the LaFerrari Aperta.

125 S, the first Ferrari
This was the first car to sport the Ferrari badge. Its 12-cylinder engine, vital to powerful performance, was designed by Gioacchino Colombo with Giuseppe Busso and Luigi Bazzi also contributing to the project. On March 12 1947, the 125 S, still an unbodied steel rolling chassis, roared to life for the first time and the great Ferrari adventure began. Two months later, on May 11 1947, the car made its track debut at the Piacenza Circuit. At the wheel of the 125 S (the S referring to its sports car-type bodywork) was Franco Cortese. Enzo Ferrari dubbed this maiden outing as “a promising failure” after the car was forced to pull up with a fuel pump problem whilst leading the race. However, that moment of failure was short-lived as just nine days later on May 20, Franco Cortese drove the 125 S to victory in the Rome Grand Prix, completing the 40 laps of the circuit and the 137 kilometres of the race at an average speed of 88.5 km/h. This was the first of six victories the 125 S delivered in 1947, the most notable of which was the Parma Grand Prix with Tazio Nuvolari doing the driving.

LaFerrari Aperta, 70th anniversary icon
Technological excellence, performance, style, exclusivity. Ferrari’s unique core values are brilliantly represented by the car launched to mark the 70th anniversary of the foundation of the company. The LaFerrari Aperta is the new limited-edition special series model dedicated to our most loyal clients and also the spider version of the acclaimed LaFerrari supercar.

Maranello’s latest supercar effortlessly combines extraordinary performance with the unique exhilaration of open-top driving. It is equipped with the same hybrid power unit as the coupé: an 800 cv 6,262cc V12 engine (specific power output of 128 cv/l, compression ratio 13.5:1) coupled with a 120 kW electric motor for a total power output of a 963 cv.

A “Driven by Emotion” Anniversary
In the course of 2017, over 60 nations will host events crafted to treat clients and enthusiasts of the marque to a string of unique experiences as part of the “Driven by Emotion” concept, one of the cornerstones on which the Ferrari story was founded and has flourished. “Driven by Emotion” is a tribute to the importance placed by the Cavallino Rampante on emotion throughout the last 70 years: be it in terms of delivering the most riveting and rewarding driving experience possible, Ferrari’s universally lauded and acknowledged styling, or innovation via the astonishing pioneering technological solutions revealed by each new Maranello model.

Thus, March 12 marks the start of the anniversary events with Australasia opening the programme. The LaFerrari Aperta will be present at each stage as the symbol of the 70th anniversary.

The anniversary celebrations culminate in Maranello on the weekend of September 9 and 10, but will also be flanked by other initiatives paying homage to Cavallino Rampante history, not least special exhibitions and the first “Cavalcade Classiche”.

A special website has been created to flank the celebrations as they unfold throughout the year as well as to introduce the pivotal moments and individuals in the company’s history. The www.ferrari70.com site goes online on Sunday, March 12.

Kimi: “Thanks to the whole team”

Posted: 10.03.2017 / Source: Ferrari

“There’s a good feeling but it’s too early for predictions”. A thought for John Surtees: “He had racing in his blood”

Montmelò, 10 March – “There’s a good feeling with this car and that’s the most important thing. We have been reliable for almost all of these days of testing and that is another good sign of the great work the team has done over the winter. We are starting from a stronger base than last year: but it’s really too early to say how fast the car is compared to the others. Perhaps even Melbourne won’t give a 100 per cent precise picture of the situation, because the first race is always a bit unusual. We might have to wait until China. Either way I’d like to thank everyone in the team, because they have always managed to step in and sort out all the small problems that testing is supposed to resolve.”

These are the words of Kimi Raikkonen, at the end of his second day’s work which wraps up this year’s winter testing at the Montmelò circuit. He put in 111 laps in his SF70H today, during a programme that included a race simulation. The attempt was interrupted at about 4pm by an electrical problem, when he was still about 15 laps from the “chequered flag”. Having been brought back to the pits, the Ferrari went out again with just under 20 minutes left of the day.

Having learned the news of the death of John Surtees, who won the 1964 Formula 1 world championship at the wheel of a Ferrari, Kimi wanted to remember him like this: “I met him a few times, he was very easy-going and it was very easy to get on with him. And you could tell that he had passion for racing in his blood. So this is sad news and my thoughts are with his family.”

Over the four days of testing this week, the SF70H has completed a total of 488 laps in the hands of both Kimi and Seb, equal to 2271.64km.

Winter testing ends for Seb

Vettel finishes his test runs with a race simulation

Montmelò, 9 March – Sebastian Vettel finished his winter testing today with a full grand prix simulation shared out between morning and afternoon, and a series of other tests that brought today’s total of laps completed to 156. In addition to the 168 laps he put in on Tuesday that makes a total of 1,508km for the German Scuderia Ferrari driver during this second week of testing.
Vettel said: “The important thing is that we have completed a lot of laps and, compared to the same time a year ago, we feel better prepared because of that. At this point lap times don’t mean anything: we followed our programme and made progress but there’s still room for improvement.”
The race simulation took place in two phases – using Soft, Super Soft and Ultrasoft tyres during the late morning before covering a race distance (66 laps) with two sets of Soft tyres and one set of Mediums in the afternoon.
Tomorrow it will be Kimi Raikkonen’s turn to take to the wheel of the SF70H for the fourth and final day of winter testing. Then preparations will begin back at base for the first race of the world championship at Melbourne. The cars will leave from Maranello next Thursday.
