Ferrari 2024 F1 car launch – How did Ferrari get on in 2023?
It was a frustrating season for the Scuderia last time out, despite being the only team other than Red Bull to win a race.
Following a slow start, Ferrari’s season was summed up by some impressive showings in qualifying on Saturday which could not be backed up with supreme race-pace on Sunday, especially up against Max Verstappen and Red Bull.
That being said, Carlos Sainz managed to secure the only non-Red Bull win of the season with a terrific drive in Singapore.
Charles Leclerc secured five pole positions but could not claim a victory. The Monegasque has not won a race since July 2022.
