Ferrari reveals 2019 Formula 1 car launch date

Ferrari has announced that its 2019 Formula 1 car, codenamed internally 670, will be revealed on February 15. Team principal Maurizio Arrivabene revealed the news during the Autosprint award ceremony of Caschi d'oro. "The group led by [technical director] Mattia Binotto has been working on next year's single-seater for months now," said Arrivabene, who was accompanied at the ceremony by new signing Charles Leclerc. The engines are already running on the test benches and there are parts of the car that are already in production. The parts more related to the performance will arrive at the last moment, even if the tension increases because the time is less and less. "On February 15 we will present the car and everything must be ready for that day. Of course, it is early to give an overall picture of the car. Simulations are being done and we are working on the simulator, but the real test bench is only the track. That's where you confront yourself, comparing the data you've collected during the winter period, and especially where you confront yourself with others. The technicians are working hard to complete the car by February 15. We have some information from the guys who work on the simulator, but it's still too early to talk about performance."
