Scuderia Ferrari start the 2019 Formula 1 season with confidence. A changed lineup, with Charles Leclerc joining after a season at Sauber and a new boss in long-time insider Mattia Binotto, has taken the team back to their racing roots and brought back a more open atmosphere. The car looked the pick of the field in testing but with some reliability niggles. Sebastian Vettel is gunning for a fifth title, and should be the main focus but cannot afford any errors, while Charles Leclerc can hope to become Formula One’s 108th race winner since 1950.
