Introducing the new Ferrari SF15-T



Ferrari have officially unveiled the SF15-T, the car the team hope will return them to winning ways in 2015.

The new car, which will be driven by Ferrari's all-world champion line-up of Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen, is noticeably different in appearance to last year's F14 T.

"Last year we had an unacceptably large gap in our performance," technical director James Allison told Ferrari's website. "We've tried to make sure that the weaknesses that we felt were particularly noticeable on the '14 car were put right for the '15 car."

Like other 2015 cars, the most obvious change from last year is at the front where a long flat nose has been introduced in response to recent rule changes. However, Allison says the rear of the SF15-T received similar attention: "The back of the car is something that is noticeably different from the 2014 car. We have been successful in pulling the bodywork much tighter to all the stuff underneath the skin. That's been done from a lot of work, not just in the wind tunnel, but also in the design part of the company to try to find radiator designs that were fundamentally more efficient.

Another crucial area of development for the Scuderia over the winter was on their power unit, which struggled against the might of Mercedes in 2014.

"We had a number of issues with last year's power unit," explained Allison. "Early on in the season the power delivery was not particularly sophisticated so it was tough for the drivers to get the throttle response they wanted. That improved a lot during the season and we've taken it a step further for the SF15-T.
