The SF1000 is the seventh Ferrari car built to race in Formula 1’s hybrid era, which began in 2014. Its name reflects the fact that, when we get to the ninth race of this year, the Scuderia will have taken part in a thousand World Championship Grands Prix. The technical regulations being largely unchanged for the 2020 season, and the SF1000 was designed as an evolution of its predecessor the SF90. In fact, the SF1000 was a significant step down for the Scuderia. Charles Leclerc started the season with the promising 2nd place at the Austrian Grand Prix, but then was able to finish in the podium only once (at Silverstone) in 17 races of the season shortened due to COVID-19 pandemic. Leclerc finished the championship in eighth, scoring 98 points. Sebastian Vettel finished the season only 13th with 33 points. To mark the team’s 1000th Grand Prix at the Tuscan Grand Prix, the SF1000 appeared in a burgundy livery in honour of Ferrari’s first racing car, the 125 S. The celebration became not very successful – Leclerc and Vettel were classified 8th and 10th, respectively.
