Ferrari has revealed its special F1 Italian GP livery with yellow touches on the car after showcasing new overalls on Monday.
Much like last year, Ferrari will run a special livery for this weekend’s F1 Italian GP at Monza. It has incorporated the same yellow from 2022 but this time they have placed it at different spots on the 2023 car making it look much smoother and nicer.
The special livery was revealed on Tuesday, a day after Ferrari showcased the driver overalls of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz with yellow influence. Last year they ran a full yellow overalls but this time they have opted for a mixture of red and yellow.
They currently use the red and yellow combination on their Hypercar machine which also won the Le Mans 24 Hours this year. The Monza race will also have special guests with Antonio Giovinazzi, Alessandro Pier Gurdi and Antonio Fuoco in attendance.
“Last year in Monza, the historic company colour of yellow featured strongly in celebrations for the marque’s 75th anniversary and this year it’s back,” said the Ferrari statement. “The SF-23 livery will pay tribute to that of the 499P which won the world’s most famous endurance race, in the form of the yellow “V” stripes that run down the side of the Hypercar, featuring on the nose and engine cover. The two cars already have the Rosso Le Mans red colour in common, with a matt finish on the Formula 1 car and gloss on the endurance racer. The race numbers – 16 and 55 – will also be yellow.
“Charles and Carlos will have race suits specially designed for this race, featuring the Maranello marque’s colours of yellow, red and black and the “long F” logo which also features on the rear wing. Special helmets too: mainly yellow for the Monegasque and black for the Spaniard. History. The walls of the walkway leading from the paddock to the pit garage, will feature illustrations of the Scuderia’s milestones in Formula 1 as well as in other categories where owners have raced their cars.
“After all, the Scuderia was established in 1929 with the aim of helping gentlemen drivers to race at a high level, something which is still true today, thanks to the Competizioni GT department which supports competitors in GT races, as well as the Corse Clienti department which has run the Ferrari Challenge, the Prancing Horse’s one-make series, since 1993 and the exclusive XX Programmes and the F1 Clienti department.”
