The sound of Ferrari's 2023 car was heard for the first time this morning in the vehicle assembly area.

The power unit, fitted to the car, was fired-up shortly after 11:00 in the presence team principal, Frederic Vasseur and several team members, including Vice President, Piero Ferrari and CEO, Benedetto Vigna.

The initial fire-up is always a very special moment for an F1 team, the first time that the power unit is brought to life when fitted to the chassis after months of work and development from the respective departments.

The noise from the V6 hybrid made itself heard for just under two minutes, followed by a round of applause from those present.

Then, as silence returned, the team got back to work on the car that will be officially launched on Tuesday 14 February in Maranello at 11.25.

"Maybe it's standard procedure but... the season starts in a month and they're just firing up the engine now?

OK, I know, I know, they know what they're doing. They're Ferrari. They haven't any engine problems lately...no none at all...zero...oh wait...

Yeah, I know it's just a publicity thing."

"So what?. It's all very very 'meh'. It could be any engine they please. What a boring exercise. Too much unsubstantial flim flam. "

"What's so spectacular about that sound, it could of have been recorded weeks ago when the engine was on the dyno. How can we tell if it sounds any different if it's mounted on a car's chassis. Why didn't they show the car, what secrets is anyone going to grab by seeing just the engine running on the rear of the chassis?

Just like today's Red Bull presentation, more publicity for publicity's sake."
