Ferrari will unveil the eagerly anticipated special livery that will adorn the SF-24 during the Miami GP. Ferrari has already given enthusiasts a glimpse at the unique livery, though. The teaser photo highlights the Ferrari's iconic red colour with what appears to be a startling blue front wing. This implies that rather than a totally blue design, the prestigious Italian Formula One business has chosen a compelling combination of red with faint blue highlights.  This choice is a repeat of a similar strategic one the team took in 2022. Scuderia Ferrari debuted a yellow-dash livery during the home race in Monza to celebrate the company's 75th anniversary. Similar to that, the drivers wore striking yellow racing suits and the car had its distinctive red with vivid yellow highlights.

F1: What's New?

A lot of Ferrari's teaser presentations focused on the front end, where Ferrari's red and soft blue tones blend beautifully. While keeping the car's mainly conventional colour palette, this deliberate divergence from the expected all-blue appearance adds some much-needed freshness.

In addition to the blue highlights adorning the front nose, Ferrari hinted that the wheel covers will get the same vintage blue treatment.

In honour of Ferrari's 70th anniversary in North America, this livery evolution includes the recognisable Azzurro La Plata and Azzurro Dino hues. Choosing this colour instead of their usual red celebrates a major aspect of their racing history. During the 1964 Formula 1 season, these colours were used to commemorate the legendary North American Racing Team (N.A.R.T. ), which once replaced the Italian Rosso Corsa.

Blue La Plata evokes memories of Alberto Ascari, the first world champion, who considered his blue gear talismans during his successful early 1950s campaigns.
