According to Italian media sources, Ferrari's 2020 car will be officially named 'SF1000' when it is launched in Italy on Monday.

Sebastian Vettel, Charles Leclerc and the Maranello team's other key players will descend to the historic Romolo Valli theatre in Reggio Emilia on Monday to launch the 2020 car.

Eliminating problems

As in 2019, the 'SF' stands for Scuderia Ferrari, with the '1000' component of the official name in celebration of the sport's 1000th grand prix.
