Ferrari reveals 2023 F1 car launch date

Ferrari will launch its 2023 Formula 1 car on Tuesday February 14th.

The “official designation” of the car has yet to be revealed, but it is being designed and developed under the project number 675. The 2022 car was project number 674, but raced as the Ferrari F1-75.

Ferrari has not issued any further details of its launch, although it is likely that it will once again be broadcast digitally as in previous years.

A shakedown at Fiorano on a promotional day, on which it’s possible to complete up to 100km, could follow although this has not been confirmed.

Ferrari is only the second team to announce its launch date following Aston Martin, which will hold its event at its Silverstone base the day before.

Given pre-season testing will be held in Bahrain on February 23-25, Ferrari and Aston Martin will not be the only teams to launch their cars in the week beginning February 13.

The new Ferrari will build on the strengths of its distinctive 2022 car, which only won four grands prix despite being, on average, the fastest car over a single lap.

But a combination of power unit reliability problems and operational errors meant that Ferrari was unable to capitalise on its 12 pole positions and fight for either the constructors’ championship or, with Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz, drivers’ title.

That has led to upheaval over the winter, with Mattia Binotto leaving the team and Frederic Vasseur agreeing to take over as general manager and team principal in January.
