The new machine, which will be driven by Ferrari’s all-world champion driver line-up of Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen, features, amongst other things, a distinctive long flat nose and revised sidepods.

Technical director James Allison said the team aimed to address the “unacceptably large gap in our performance” last year, when Ferrari failed to win a race for the first time since 1993.

“We’ve tried to make sure the weaknesses we felt were particularly notable on the ’14 car were put right for the 15 car,” he said.

“That’s been done through a lot of work not just in the wind tunnel but also in the design heart of the company to try and find radiator designs that were fundamentally more efficient. So for every square centimetre of radiator we’re able to extract more cooling this year than last and therefore able to close the car down at the back significantly.”

“I think all the cars on the grid this year are going to be more appealing around the front,” said Allison

“Because after after a few years of trying I think we’ve finally invented a regulation that gets what we wanted from a safety point of view but also doesn’t create the rather unappealing features of the last few years”.

“So I think everyone will look a lot prettier from the front and the 2015 Ferrari is, I think, nice in that regard.”
