Scuderia Ferrari have decided to adorn the SF-24, and their drivers, in specific shades of blue for the upcoming Miami Grand Prix on Sunday, May 5, to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Ferrari’s presence in North America.

The car itself features splashes of Azzurro La Plata and Azzurro Dino across its still very recognisably red body, while drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz make the most of the celebratory blue make-over with some very stylish racing suits and helmets, mainly in Azzurro La Plata.

The same colour was also seen on Ferrari drivers’ racing suits in the 1960s, including those of John Surtees, Lorenzo Bandini, Ludovico Scarfiotti and Chris Amon. The legendary Niki Lauda also wore a primarily Azzurro La Plata coloured racing suit in his inaugural season with the Scuderia.

“The upcoming Miami Grand Prix will be one to remember in the history of our team, as in Florida we will be celebrating our heritage through a unique livery, rediscovering two colours that are part of our history,” said Ferrari Team Principal Fred Vasseur, adding that “it will also be a very special race, as we are glad to welcome the arrival of our new title partner HP.”
