2007 F1 champion Räikkönen is also behind the wheel in the first day of official preseason testing today with Giovinazzi taking over tomorrow.
The C38’s distinctive front wing and nose design has created a lot of intrigue, including that the wing’s elements slope down to the endplates.
“The livery brings out last year’s features in a stronger and more edgy way,” said Vasseur. “I would like to thank everyone who has worked towards creating this car for their relentless enthusiasm for our team’s mission and our sport.”
“Since joining the team last year, I have seen progressive growth on all fronts and am very pleased to see the result of the hard work completed over the course of this winter,” added the team’s technical director Simone Resta. “We have set ambitious targets for this season which brings along a significant change in regulations – mainly from an aerodynamic point of view.”
