Ferrari have released their new SF16-H challenger for 2016 with the express purpose of taking the fight to Mercedes. The shorter nose and retro livery add to the new look. Team boss Maurizio Arrivebene said:
“Normally I am not setting the objectives, my boss sets the objective for the team.
“I think this year, we need to push a bit more. We would like to fight until the end for the championship.
“I know that is not going to be easy, because our competitors are not sleeping, but we are committed to do our best.”
Ferrari’s chief brain, James Allison, said:
“Back in 2013, Ferrari was not at the right level, the championship, except for maybe doing pitstops.
“We’ve worked very hard on all of those areas. Last year was a decent step forward and we hope this car will be another good step forward to make us properly competitive.
“We have improved across the board. All our hopes are in this car, and we can’t wait to see it on the track.”
