Ferrari Have Just Unveiled A Retro Burgundy Car To Mark Their 1000th F1 Grand Prix

Wow. This is just a thing of beauty.

The Tuscan Grand Prix this weekend will mark Ferrari's 1000th Formula 1 race.

And to celebrate the momentous occasion, the legendary Italian race team has unveiled a new look to its cars - and to say they're special would be an understatement.

This weekend at Mugello, Ferrari duo Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc's SF1000 cars will be a burgundy colour - a change from of their iconic crimson red tints that have been carving history on the track for over 70 years.

The team's founder Enzo Ferrari first competed in F1 at the Monaco Grand Prix back in 1950 and his team has raced in every event since.

And now, to mark their 1000th race, Ferrari's cars have received a lick of paint to pay homage to their cars of old.

"Scuderia Ferrari's 1000th Grand Prix is a very important milestone, therefore it had to be marked in a special way," Ferrari vice chairman Piero Ferrari, son of Enzo, said.

"That's why we decided to run a unique livery on the cars for this event, with the SF1000s taking to the track at the Mugello Circuit in the Burgundy colour first seen on the 125S, the first racing car to carry the Ferrari name.

"Even the look of the race numbers on Charles' and Sebastian's cars will reflect the tradition of the past, giving the impression of being hand painted onto the bodywork, while the drivers' race suits will also match the car colour.

"It's a tribute to our origins: to our starting point for the amazing Ferrari story, characterised by an endless desire to compete."
