The Miami Grand Prix (May 3-5) will be the opportunity for Ferrari to celebrate its heritage on the other side of the Atlantic. On the occasion of the 70e anniversary of its arrival in North America, the manufacturer is preparing a series of events with the aim of highlighting “ all aspects of the Prancing Horse » from April 28 to May 5 with the highlight of the meeting of Formula 1.

On this occasion, the SF-24s of Scuderia Ferrari will sport a special livery where the blue color will be visible with two different shades: Azzurro La Plata and Azzurro Dino. These make “ reference to Ferrari's rich heritage " and " revive memories of historic victories, emblematic figures and skillful mechanics from Maranello who proudly wore them during the first triumphs of the prancing horse."

Indeed, in the past, the workers' overalls were blue and even those of the drivers, notably in the 1970s like Clay Regazzoni or Niki Lauda in 1974.

A nod to NART

This choice of Azzurro La Plata and Azzurro Dino colors is far from trivial since they recall the 158 Ferrari 1964 of the NART (North American Racing Team) in F1, importer of the trans manufacturer's cars.alpine to promote the brand in Canada, the United States and Mexico at the end of the 1950s. The 158 had nothing of a Ferrari in appearance since it appeared with a gray and blue dress adorned with the number 7 with John Surtees at the wheel and not the traditional red.

The Scuderia is raising the temperature with a livery that could mark the occasion. But to discover it, we will have to wait a little longer since it will be directly presented on Florida soil in a few days. So be patient...

The “Azzurro La Plata” color, which is very reminiscent of Argentina, would have been more appropriate for a return of the Argentine GP to Buenos Aires or for the Brazilian GP, ​​the only South American race on the calendar!
