F1: Ferrari reveals official name for 2015 car – the SF15-T

1 Comment

Up to now, Ferrari’s 2015 Formula One car had not received an official name. That matter has been settled.

From here on in, we can refer to the Scuderia’s newest machine as the SF15-T. The name is easy to figure out – “SF” for Scuderia Ferrari, “15” for the current year, and “T” for turbo.

Official launch for the SF15-T is set for Friday, with a track debut the following Sunday on the first day of Formula One preseason testing at Jerez de la Frontera, Spain.

Last week, a German media report said that team newcomer and four-time World Champion Sebastian Vettel (pictured above, from his first Ferrari test last year) will drive the car for the first two days of the four-day Jerez session.

He’ll then hand the SF15-T over to Kimi Raikkonen, the last Ferrari driver to win a World Championship, for the third and fourth days.

This offseason, Ferrari’s new chairman, Sergio Marchionne, has said that he expects a challenging 2015 season following a year of upheaval for the team. Its new principal, Maurizio Arrivabene, has said that they’re aiming for at least two victories.
