Two weeks ahead of the launch of its 2018 contender, Ferrari has fired up the engine that will power it, as well as the Haas and Sauber teams, this season.

The 2018 car is to be unveiled on Thursday 22 February, just four days ahead of the opening pre-season test at Barcelona.

Having mounted a strong challenge to Mercedes in 2017, certainly in the opening half of the season, Ferrari is seeking a significant step forward this year.

The Maranello outfit's 2018 contender is launched on the same day as rivals Mercedes, and fittingly the German manufacturer got the jump on its Italian challengers in terms of fire-ups also, releasing video of its 'ceremony' earlier this week

Though it is understood drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen were not present for the fire-up, which went according to plan, both have visited Maranello in recent days for their final seat fittings.
