The Ferrari SF90 is a Formula One racing car designed and constructed by Scuderia Ferrari to compete during the 2019 FIA Formula One World Championship.[1] The car will be driven by Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc.[2] The car made its competitive debut at the 2019 Australian Grand Prix.

In keeping with his tradition of giving his cars female nicknames (a tradition since he joined Toro Rosso in 2008), Vettel named his SF90 "Lina".[3]

The car was named SF90 to mark the 90th anniversary of Scuderia Ferrari.

Design and development[edit]

The new regulations for the 2019 Formula 1 season mean that the teams must adopt a new simpler front wing design and a higher and wider rear wing. The new engine cover on the SF90 is much smaller compared to its predecessor the SF71H in order to save weight and for aerodynamic purposes and adopts a much smaller triangular inlet. Ferrari adopted a matte finish to the car's livery instead of gloss to save weight.[4]
