Scuderia Ferrari has revealed its new car for the 2016 Formula 1 season, the SF16-H, incorporating a retro livery with a white airbox as predicted last month in the Italian press.

After enjoying a year of resurgence in 2015 that saw Sebastian Vettel claim three race wins, Ferrari has set its sights on mounting a greater challenge to Mercedes for both titles in 2016 with its new car.

The SF16-H features a white airbox as had been reported last month, in a throwback to the livery used on the Ferrari 93A and other cars during the 1970s and 1980s such as the 312T.

The car was launched sporting a revised design at the front of the car, featuring a shorter, ‘stubby’ nose as used by Williams throughout 2015, and also a push-rod suspension system.

After a change in the design of the power unit, the rear of the car is also more tightly-packed in a bid to improve its aerodynamic efficiency.
