"The halo looks different but to be honest we tried it previous year and it wasn't a big difference", Raikkonen said. I think they are all waiting for us to say how it feels.

Finnish team mate Kimi Raikkonen, who is now 38 and out of contract at the end of the season, said it looked good despite the addition of the now mandatory halo head-protection device. For example I would mention we tried to develop the vehicle to be strong and performant on high-speed circuits, but also improve reliability.

Ferrari's new vehicle is painted in the traditional red livery, but unlike its predecessors with very little white.

"When it looks nice, the speed is also there".

"Our goal is to always be faster".

"We all like divas, but sometimes she was a bit hard to understand and this is the area where we worked the most, trying to understand and preserve the speed in the auto and find more driveability".


The new challenger has a longer wheelbase to move it more into line with rival Mercedes' design.

Vettel led the F1 drivers' standings until round 13 at the Italian Grand Prix a year ago but his and Ferrari's title challenge fell apart during the Asian flyaway races due to a combination of driver error and mechanical breakdowns.

"We can't wait to get out on the track to see how the auto performs and behaves".

However, closer inspection reveals plenty of significant changes to the chassis, with the vehicle having both a longer wheelbase than its predecessor, as well as an even more aggressive sidepod design, a revised cooling system and updated aerodynamics.

Raikkonen said "it's an excellent vehicle, and our aim is to be faster" this year than last, when the Ferraris trailed the Mercedes on the faster circuits.

Ferrari have not won the constructors title since 2008 with Raikkonen last winning the drivers title for Ferrari in 2007.
