The Ferrari SF16-H is a Formula One racing car[1] designed and built by Ferrari to compete in the 2016 Formula One season, during which it was driven by Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Räikkönen. The SF16-H was launched on 19 February 2016.[2] The "H" in the name of the car stands for "Hybrid".[1]

The SF16-H had a predominantly red and white livery, similar to that used on the Ferrari 312T and F93A.

In accordance with his habit of giving his cars female nicknames, Vettel dubbed his SF16-H "Margherita", in reference to Margherita of Savoy, the Queen consort of the Kingdom of Italy from 1878–1900.[3]

Ferrari eventually finished in third place in the Constructors' Championship. They also did not win a race all season, for the second time in three seasons.
