The Ferrari SF1000 is a Formula One racing car designed and constructed by Scuderia Ferrari to compete during the 2020 Formula One World Championship.[1] The car will be driven by Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc.[2] The car was planned to make its competitive début at the 2020 Australian Grand Prix, but this was delayed when the race was cancelled and the next three events in Bahrain, Vietnam and China were postponed in response to the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic.[3][4] The SF1000 is now expected to make its début at the 2020 Canadian Grand Prix.

The pandemic also prompted the delay of technical regulations that had been planned for introduction in 2021. Under an agreement reached between teams and the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile, 2020-specification cars—including the SF1000—will see their lifespan extended to compete in 2021.[5]

Background[edit]

The car's designation "SF1000" refers to Ferrari's one thousandth Grand Prix entry, which was originally due to occur at the Monaco Grand Prix, however, due to the cancellation and postponement of several races its 1000th race is now expected to be Italian Grand Prix.[6] Sebastian Vettel continued his tradition of naming his cars, this time calling it "Lucilla".[7]
