Valentine’s Day is just over a month away, but the thoughts of the many Ferrari fans in Italy and around the world are more focused on the presentation of the new Formula 1 car for the 2023 championship than on Valentine’s Day. The name of the Maranello team’s new challenger is for now an acronym, 675, but the name of the new Ferrari single-seater that will have to help Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz in the hunt for the 2023 world titles is still a mystery.
In the meantime, however, more concrete information is starting to leak about what could be the location of the highly anticipated unveiling.
In recent weeks, rumors had circulated that the chosen location could be Imola, effectively following the setting up of the Prancing Horse for the presentation of the spectacular 499P, the car with which the top management of Ferrari will be looking for glory in the world endurance championship and the 24 hours of Le Mans. Now, however, it seems that a different and more ‘traditional’ path will be taken for Formula 1.
According to what was reported by the Italian daily newspaper Corriere dello Sport, in fact, the first Formula One racing car of the Frederic Vasseur era – although obviously built under the management of its predecessor, Mattia Binotto – will be shown to the world in Maranello. Then, to optimize times, the new car will hold its first filming day of the year at the Fiorano circuit.

It will be the first taste of the track for the new single-seater which two weeks later, from 23 to 25 February, will be engaged together with all the other cars in the official pre-season testing session at the Bahrain International Circuit. The F1-75 was probably the best looking car seen on the grid last year. Ferrari fans hope that its successor will also be the fastest.
