Scuderia Ferrari has confirmed that this Friday, it will reveal its 2016 challenger online at 14:00 CET.

In U.S. time terminology, that’s 8 a.m. ET.

Rumors have circulated on the Internets here in the last few days that Ferrari’s 2016 livery is set to feature a batch of white, in an homage to the past.

Here’s a potential rendering that’s made the rounds:

Ferrari used white in the 1970s to great effect and it came back again, briefly, in the early 1990s through 1993. But for the last 20-plus years it’s been all-red, all the time, with some black blended in as well.

The team’s tweet makes no mention of white though, with the hashtag #ReadySetRed at the end of it.

We only have a few more days to wait.
