Ferrari unveils 2019 Formula 1 cars with vow to win

MARANELLO, Italy – Ferrari has unveiled its 2019 Formula 1 cars, machines the automaker hopes will end an era of Mercedes dominance on tracks around the world.

The team also, Reuters reported, says the cars were designed to end an era of Mercedes domination ”and shatter Lewis Hamilton’s dream of a sixth championship”.

The sport’s oldest and most successful team – though it last won an F1 season more than 10 years ago and was second in 2018 – presented the SF90 at its Maranello factory.

‘EXTREMELY EXCITED’

Lead driver Sebastian Vettel – five race wins in 2018 – was bold with his comment: “I’m looking forward to the season. I think the team is on the right path and hope we can continue improving.”

Ferrari chief executive Louis Camilleri said 2018 was the team best showing in a decade, but added: “I can assure you that we look ahead with strong commitment.”
