Ferrari: New rules have been a 'gamechanger' says Binotto

Ferrari aim to 'raise the bar' with 2019 F1 challenger they hope will beat Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes

The new auto, called the SF90 to reflect Ferrari's 90th anniversary in 2019, features a radical front wing design to meet new regulations this year, the aim of which is to allow cars to race closer together by reducing the turbulence experienced by a vehicle running behind another. The only elements allowed to shine around this beauty are presumably the drivers.

Before joining Ferrari, Vettel monopolised the world title for four consecutive years with Red Bull from 2010 to 2013. "The atmosphere is good, and I think things are moving in the right way".

Leclerc has become the second youngest Ferrari driver in their long history and was emotional after his first official day in the office, paying tribute to two hugely important figures in his life. "That's my mission and the reason why I am here".

Kimi Raikkonnen, who finished third in the driver's championship in 2018 and was Ferrari's last champion driver in 2009, swapped seats this year with Ferrari-newcomer Charles Leclerc, who drove for Sauber-Alfa Romeo last year.

He impressed fans across the globe with his performances in his debut campaign in 2018 whilst racing for Sauber, even outperforming his teammate Marcus Ericsson. "It's a dream since childhood. I'm not nervous", he said.

"I'm extremely excited, I see the vehicle completely assembled for the first time", said Vettel, 31, who along with Leclerc wore a black suit with the Ferrari crest. I am pretty sure it will be an wonderful season. That's code for "Watch out Seb, I'm coming for you".

Two Men Arrested For November Double Murder In Miramar
The Sun Sentinel reports the victims had recently moved from Vero Beach to Miramar and were trying to forge their own rap careers. Both victims were aspiring rappers themselves who recorded under the names YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy , respectively.

The Scuderia is under new management this season with Maranello engine guru Mattia Binotto replacing ex-Philip Morris marketing supremo Maurizio Arrivabene as team principal.

Mattia Binotto replaced outgoing boss Maurizio Arrivabene, who was criticized previous year for failing to capitalize at tracks that favored Ferrari. Binotto has been with Ferrari since 1995, most recently as technical director. He knows how to build a vehicle. "It is not a revolution. I think we simply tried to push again, raise the bar, raise the level, tried to be as extreme as we could".

"Such a setback is never easy to swallow, but I assure you we look forward with strong commitment and determination".

Ferrari chief executive officer Louis Camilleri said: "Vettel remains as hungry as ever and I know he is totally devoted to achieve his and our ambitions and he knows the entire team will give him all their full-hearted support".

"He knows the Scuderia inside out". He is very much a team player - decisive, talented and determined to make a difference at all levels.
