Ferrari reveal tweaks to their livery for Italian Grand Prix

By on

Just days ahead of this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix, Ferrari have shown off a special, tweaked livery that will sport the cars of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz at Monza.

Ferrari carried over the colour scheme of their 2022 car for this year, which is predominantly defined by the red colour with the front and rear wing adorning black. Last year, Ferrari used a special livery on home soil at the Italian Grand Prix that saw the Scuderia add splashes of yellow to various parts of the car with which they celebrated 75 years of their car company.

Alongside red, yellow is Ferrari’s second colour as the background for their iconic prancing horse logo and as one of the colours of their home town Modena where founder Enzo Ferrari was born in 1898.

This year sees Ferrari introduce another tweaked colour scheme for their home race to celebrate their 2023 Le Mans 24 Hours victory. Yellow “V” stripes will be added to various elements of the team’s 2023 F1 car, the SF-23 including its nose and engine cover. Moreover Ferrari Carlos Sainz’s and Charles Leclerc’s race number will also be printed in yellow.

Ferrari returned to the famour 24 Hours of Le Mans this year and managed to take a sensational win at the Centenary edition of the historic race with the 499P driven by Alessandro Pier Guidi, who shared the number 51 car with James Calado and Antonio Giovinazzi, covering 342 laps of the French track.

Ferrari's history at Le Mans comprises 39 victories, including 29 class wins and 10 overall victories. The Italian brand achieved their first overall Le Mans victory in 1949 with Luigi Chinetti and Peter Mitchell-Thomson behind the wheel.

Fans that attend the Italian Grand Prix will be able to see some historic Ferraris including the 499P, the 296 GTE3 and the 2003 Italian Grand Prix-winning F2003-GA with all three set to be on display in the fan zone behind the paddock.

In addition to the tweaked livery, Leclerc and Sainz will wear special driver race suits for the upcoming weekend with their helmets and race suits sporting splashes of yellow.
