Ferrari F1-75

Ferrari race cars have an unparalleled lineage, and every year, enthusiasts across the world wait on the edges of their seats for the brand’s latest Formula One challenger. For the 2022 racing season, Ferrari has unveiled the F1-75, designed from the ground up according to Formula One’s all-new technical regulations.

What Stands Out in the New F1-75 Design?

Ferrari F1 drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz Jr. will both sit behind the wheel of the F1-75 this season, and they’ve had nothing but good things to say about this bold and striking new design. New technical requirements from Formula One have given Ferrari a reason to think outside the box—and the results are sure to excite. 

Among the many features that stand out, the extremely sharp nose and the bold, sculpted side pods are the first to capture the eye. A deep red paint gives the F1-75 a particularly unique and aggressive feel. Where performance is concerned, the most significant change is the introduction of new ground effects, which increase downforce on the vehicle and reduce drag that might interfere with passing. The new 18-inch tires are expected to reduce overheating—and we also love how they look!

Ferrari F1-75 Specifications

Of course, the real star of this year’s Ferrari F1 show might be the hybrid powertrain, which consists of a 1.6L turbocharged V6 and two potent electric motor-generators. Take a closer look at the specs that will propel the F1-75 to victory in this year’s Formula One season:
