Ferrari Reveal the Numbers Behind the SF-15T

The 2015 Ferrari car for the Formula One series was revealed this Friday. The SF-15T will be driven by Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen in the upcoming season. Much like the other cars that have been released, the Ferrari machine has a longer front nose than last year's cars, per the new regulations in this category.

Ferrari's technical director, James Allison, said the team is trying to combat the "unacceptably large gap in our performance" last season as compared to the rival teams. The team will be looking for their first win since the Spanish Grand Prix in 2013 after going win-less last season.
