Ferrari are hard at work preparing for their Friday team launch and the unveiling of their new car on March 10. As a result it seemed like the perfect time for CEO John Elkann to drop in for a visit.

Ahead of the team's online presentation on Friday, Ferrari CEO John Elkann told those at Maranello that commitment and dedication is needed if the Scuderia are to get back to their winning ways.

The Prancing Horse endured a miserable 2020 campaign, failing to win a single race while finishing sixth in the constructors' standings. While Charles Leclerc return, Carlos Sainz now sits in the team's other seat following Sebastian Vettel's departure for Aston Martin.

With teams preparing to hit the track for pre-season testing in Bahrain in two weeks time, Elkann met with the team at Maranello on Thursday in a bid to boost spirits as preparations ramp up.

"The most important thing this season will be to demonstrate our will to win, through our commitment and dedication," Elkann stated via Ferrari's official website. "We will have to pay attention to every little detail: it all adds up.”

Friday's team presentation will take place at 14:00 CET with the new car being unveiled on March 10.
