The apparent tributes to Ferrari's history in its 2022 F1 car

Ferrari has unveiled its bold new F1-75, which appears to take an outside-the-box interpretation of Formula 1's new 2022 regulations. A number of design cues that, unintentionally or not, draw attention to the past are among the curiosities in a concept the team hopes will end its lengthy title drought

Many feared that Formula 1’s all-new ruleset would prove too restrictive and result in 20 identikit cars. But as launch season has progressed, it’s become evident that the teams have defied that worry - and instead have come up with rather unique interpretations of the new formula. And Ferrari has arguably spawned the most radical design of the lot.

Ferrari’s F1-75 looks like an exercise in retrofuturism. One imagines that someone tasked its design team in the 1980s to come up with a 2022 design – and that Maranello’s present day work force discovered the blueprints, found they perfectly suited the brand new F1 regulations, and put it into production.
