Start of a new era for Formula 1

Formula 1 is setting a new course in the 2017 season, which heralds a new era thanks to extensive rule changes. MAHLE Motorsport and Scuderia Ferrari will take on the challenge together, as strong long-term partners

Bigger, faster, more aggressive: Formula 1 will have a new look at the opening round of the season in Melbourne on 26th March. Changes to the regulations have resulted in the cars and tyres being made wider over the winter. This, in turn, has caused the lap times to fall by a few seconds at initial tests. This obviously also goes for the new Ferrari SF70H, which is charged with claiming more race wins and challenging for the title for the iconic racing team in 2017.

For more than 40 years, Ferrari has turned to the experience and expertise of MAHLE Motorsport in Formula 1. Looking ahead to the new season, the main focus when developing the engine parts was on durability. The new regulations stipulate that only four power units are permitted for the entire 2017 season.This will be reduced to just three in 2018. As such, it is all the more important for the individual components to be as reliable as possible. With its know-how, innovation and experience, MAHLE Motorsport is making a vital contribution in this regard.

Like last year, the seats in the two Ferrari SF70H will be occupied by former Formula 1 world champions Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Räikkönen. Over the course of the 20 races, between now and the season finale in Abu Dhabi on 26th November, they will be striving to present the team from Maranello with more success, as it reaches another milestone in 2017: Ferrari will be 70 years old.

Many of the chapters in Ferrari’s unique success story have been written alongside MAHLE Motorsport. The two companies have worked side by side since 1976, since which time they have won 13 titles in the Constructors’ World Championship. The two will also remain important partners in the future, as the partnership was extended as part of a long-term cooperation agreement.
