2017 Ferrari SF70H Confirmed10 Jan 2018
The 2017 Ferrari Formula 1 car is the final car confirmed for the main Ferrari feature at Europe's biggest pre-season motorsport show, Autosport International, this week.
The SF70H joins the 2004 championship-winning F2004, 2017 LMGTE Pro World Endurance Championship-winning AF Corse 488 GTE, FXX-K Evo and the 488 Challenge cars on the stage which will showcase the range of cars available through Corse Clienti, Ferrari’s exclusive client racing programme.
The 2017 Ferrari F1 car is named SF70H to mark Scuderia Ferrari’s 70th anniversary. The car collected five race wins, 20 podiums, five pole positions on its way to scoring a total of 522 points between World Champion drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen in the 2017 season.
Its 1.6 litre turbocharged V6 Ferrari engine generates close to 1000bhp when combined with the hybrid systems seen in modern day F1. The car hit the ground running in the new era of aerodynmic regulations, winning on its debut outing at the Australian Grand Prix in March.
The car joins a host of Ferrari drivers who are confirmed to attend the show. The 2017 World Endurance Championship GTE Pro champions James Calado and Alessandro Pier Guidi will be at the show on Thursday. The pair, who race for AF Corse, sealed the 2017 GT manufacturers' crown, claiming Ferrari’s fifth WEC constructors’ title (2012, 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017).
