Ferrari have unveiled their new car ahead of the upcoming 2020 season

F1 End of Season Testing in Abu Dhabi - Day Two

The new Formula 1 season is creeping ever closer with Ferrari today revealing their brand new car for the upcoming year.

The Italian giants will be desperate to improve on a 2019 that saw them win just three races all season, despite having some of the best drivers in the circuit behind the wheel.

Former World Champion Sebastian Vettel was a bit of non-event in the end but Charles LeClerc showed immense promise and could be a real force to be reckoned with this season.

However, the question on everyone's lips is whether or not Scuderia can get any closer to the high flying Mercedes.

With Lewis Hamilton at the helm of their famous Silver Arrows, Mercedes have been simply unstoppable, building a mini-dynasty in the sport over the last few years.

However, the folks at Ferrari are confident that their new challenger has all the attributes needed to finally dethrone Mercedes.

In a glitzy ceremony complete with DJ, orchestra, conductor and even a choir, the Italians dramatically unveiled their new SF 1000.

Unsurprisingly, it's red - but while that was expected, the design team have to be commended for what is a very good looking piece of engineering.

In LeClerc, Ferrari has one of the brightest prospects of recent times and he could quite easily go on to be one of the greats.

The car certainly left a lot to be desired last time out but their new machine really does look like it means business.

Ferrari will be hoping to send a powerful message to the rest of the field with pre-season testing soon to get underway in Barcelona later this month.

Whether or Mercedes can be caught, is another thing entirely.
