Ferrari drivers hail 'aggressive' 2022 car design

With Ferrari unveiling a new look on their 2022 car, Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz have given the seal of approval.

Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz have praised the "aggressive" new look of the Ferrari after the team unveiled their 2022 challenger.

The drivers joined Team Principal Mattia Binotto to take the covers off the F1-75 on Thursday (17 February), and both were impressed by the design of the new car.

"I love it. I really, really like it," Leclerc said.

"I think I will love it even more if it's fast on track, but I absolutely love the look."

Sainz agreed, adding: "I think it looks aggressive. [It] looks radical. I think it looks beautiful also and, as Charles [said], I just hope it's fast."

A new look for the Ferrari bodywork

With new technical regulations coming into effect for the 2022 season, Binotto pointed out that the car is sporting several different characteristics, and drew attention to the front wing and nose as well as the inclusion of the new 18-inch tyres.

However, the team boss feels that the bodywork is where the car looks particularly different, something that Leclerc is a fan of.

"It definitely is [impressive]," Leclerc stated.

"I think this is my favourite part of the car itself. You can really see how much work there has been [on] this bodywork. It looks impressive. It looks extreme, and I like it."

Sainz added that the car's design is "out of the box" and that "it's what you want to see when you see a new car".

Ferrari adopt a revised livery for 2022

The livery is also slightly changed for 2022, with more black added to the team's signature red theme.

Sainz pointed out that this is a nod to the past, with Ferrari marking their 75th anniversary as a team. Leclerc, meanwhile, thinks that the new shade adds to the car's "aggressive" feel.

"I think it fits perfectly," the Monegasque said.

"It's a bit of a darker red. [It] looks a bit more aggressive but, for a car like this, I think it fits perfectly."
