Ferrari plans to pull the wraps off their new 2016 F1 car next month, and according to reports from Italian media, it could feature a livery that contains prominent sections of white around the cabin.
According to Italian motorsports site F1 Analisi Tecnica, the new Ferrari F1 car, codenamed 667, features white around the cabin and on the hood and is reminiscent of the 1993 Ferrari F93A (pictured above). The F93A isn’t the only Ferrari to wear a color other than red, however, with Niki Lauda’s 312T and 312T2 also sporting large white sections.
So a Ferrari F1 car with white in its livery isn’t so uncommon, then. In fact, you could say it’s a big part of its past, as the 312T and 312T2 are two of the most recognizable and iconic Ferrari F1 cars of all time. Here’s to hoping the 667 turns out to be equally as successful as the 312T, which won four constructors’ championships and three drivers’ championships.
The 2016 Ferrari F1 car will debut during a live stream on February 19th.
