Ferrari has confirmed they will unveil their 2022 challenger on 17 February, although they are yet to reveal the new car's name.

After the new car is unveiled, the Scuderia will spend a few more days putting the final touches on their 2022 challenger before running it through its paces when pre-season testing commences at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Spain on 23 February.

Following the three-day test in Spain, Ferrari will get another chance to finetune their setup when they travel to Bahrain for another three days of testing, from 10-12 March.

Team boss Mattia Binotto says the Scuderia's new power unit has "a lot of innovation in it", giving fans hope that Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz will be able to take the fight to Mercedes and Red Bull in 2022.

As per f1i.com, Binotto said: "If I look at the 2022 car and the 2022 power unit, believe me, there is a lot of innovation in it. I think that the way that the entire engineering team has faced the new design, the new project, and the 2022 regulations, which were a big discontinuity, was certainly with a more open mind than before. I can myself measure it by looking at the car itself, the way it's progressing, and certainly with the amount of innovation we put in it."
