Italy: On Thursday, Ferrari announced that its 2023 F1 season challenger, Project 675, will be revealed on 14th February.

The Ferrari car launch will take place one day after a presentation by Aston Martin, the team that was the first to announce its plans for the launch last week.

A brief statement from Ferrari read, “Ferrari’s 2023 car will be launched on St. Valentine’s Day, making 14th February next year a special day for lovers…of the Scuderia.”

The announcement by Ferrari adds that their car, which will compete in the 73rd season of the F1 World Championship, will go by project number 675 until its official name reveal, set for a later date.

Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz will lead the charge for Ferrari in the 2023 season, the third year in a row.

Frederic Vasseur, who will take over as Ferrari team principal on 9th January following Mattia Binotto’s resignation after the 2022 season, will lead the car unveiling ceremony.

Vasseur will lead a Ferrari team looking to continue its recent upward trajectory after Leclerc’s victory in Bahrain last season ended a two-and-a-half-year winless streak.

As a result of Ferrari’s inability to sustain a title challenge against Red Bull from its early-season pace, 2022 was a year of missed opportunities. After the Austrian Grand Prix in July, Ferrari didn’t win a race, but it managed to stay in second place in the constructors’ championship, ahead of Mercedes by a slender margin.

The Ferrari car for next year is said to have focused on two key areas where the team thought it lost to Red Bull in 2022. According to rumours, Ferrari has increased its top speed and aerodynamic efficiency while improving tyre management and degradation, the key areas where the team was caught lacking as it tried to keep up with Red Bull.

Ferrari will launch its car nine days before the start of F1 pre-season testing at the Bahrain International Circuit from 23 to 25th February. The season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix will take place on the 5th of March.
