If Mercedes showed the world its new colors at the Royal Automobile Club in London, Ferrari unpacked the SF1000 at the Romolo Valli Theater in Reggio Emilia (Italy), about 30 kilometers from Maranello. An iconic enclave because there was born in January 1797, 223 years ago, the 'Tricolore' flag adopted by unified Italy. Be the vehicle with which Sebastian Vettel, looked with magnifying glass by the Tifosi, and Charles Leclerc will try to close the hegemona of the silver arrows. An act that was attended by hundreds of fans.

The rear zone is the one that presents more changes compared to the SF90 of 2019; It is much narrower and reveals new features in the engine cover, where a kind of tiburn fin that crowns the car starts.
