NEWS STORY
01/02/2022

The car which Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz will race in the 2022 Formula 1 World Championship will be called the F1-75.

The 68th car to be built by Ferrari to compete in motor racing's blue riband championship thus combines the name of the category with the number 75, which refers to the anniversary that the company is celebrating this year.

It was on 12th March 1947 in Maranello, that Enzo Ferrari fired up the engine of the 125 S for the very first time.

"Formula One, with its spirit of competition and innovation, has always been a fundamental part of Ferrari, driving the technological development of our road cars," said chairman, John Elkann. "This year, as we celebrate the 75th anniversary of our first production car leaving the factory, we honour that spirit by naming our 2022 F1 challenger the Ferrari F1-75."

The F1-75 will be launched online on 17th February at 14:00 CET (13:00 GMT).

"What would absolutely make my year would be to see a four way battle for the 'treasure'. Red Bull, Merc, Mc Laren and Ferrari all in there with gloves off...no pussyfooting around. Last season was an improvement but the comp. has a long way to go yet before we see a real and fairer confrontation."

"I am curious to discover what the more colloquial name of the car will be by season's end.
@Spindoctor - the more the merrier I say. Hopefully a real surprise packet straight out of the blocks would be good. Alpine would be a nice one and for Williams to be an awful lot closer too. "

"Me too Mr Noble! Let's hope we're going to see some ding-dong battles involving at least 3 teams. Let's not forget that McLaren were there, or thereabouts for some of last season too, then there's Alpine...."

"If they’d launched at 5:00pm (or 15:00 GMT, being 15:00 UTC in the new money (blame the French)) The date and time would have provided an echo of F1-75… Feb-17 @ 5:00pm… F175…

Anyway - brilliant historic reference, and I hope they are all over the podium next year. A three-way battle between them, Mercedes and Red Bull would be a brilliant season."
