Ferrari has revealed its unique livery for the upcoming Italian spectacular Prix at Monza in a stunning display that has left fans and critics alike speechless. The livery honours Ferrari’s recent triumph at the 2023 Le Mans 24 Hours as well as the brand’s extensive racing history. But it’s not only about the cars; the event promises special visitors, trophies, and a one-of-a-kind experience for Ferrari fans.
A Nod to Le Mans Victory
The SF-23 will have yellow V stripes applied across the nose cone and engine cover as a tribute to the 499P Hypercar, which won the Le Mans title earlier this year. Charles Leclerc (#16) and Carlos Sainz (#55) will also have yellow racing numbers instead of the standard white on a black background. This design choice is a nod to the 100th anniversary of Le Mans and Ferrari’s significant win there.
More Than Just Cars
The special livery extends beyond the cars. Both Leclerc and Sainz will don specially designed race suits and helmets that align with the new livery. The suits will feature the traditional Ferrari colours of yellow, red, and black, along with the “long F” logo. The helmets will be mostly yellow for Leclerc and black for Sainz, bringing a personal touch to the occasion.
A Walk Down Memory Lane
Ferrari has also revealed that the walls of the pathway going from the paddock to the pit garage at Monza will include artwork depicting the Scuderia’s achievements in Formula 1 and other racing categories. This serves as a reminder of Ferrari’s long-standing devotion to motorsport and its past triumphs.
Special Guests and Trophies
Antonio Giovinazzi and Alessandro Pier Guidi, the heroes of Ferrari’s Le Mans win, will be among the VIP guests at Monza. They will bring the winner’s trophy, adding to the festive atmosphere. The event will also include an exhibition of numerous Ferrari cars, including the Le Mans-winning 499P and the 2003 Italian GP-winning F2003-GA.
Merchandise and Fan Engagement
Fans may look forward to customised caps and t-shirts, as well as a limited edition of carbon fibre eyewear. These items will be part of an exclusive capsule collection launched in collaboration with Puma and Ray-Ban, further enhancing the fan experience.
The Italian Grand Prix at Monza is building up to be more than a race; it’s a celebration of Ferrari’s famous heritage as well as a glimpse into the company’s potential future. Ferrari is going all out to make this a memorable event, with special liveries, visitors, and merchandise.
