Why blue?

Scuderia Ferrari has introduced two new shades of blue to their F1-challenger: Azzurro Dino and Azzurro La Plata. This choice is influenced by two factors: the recent partnership with HP, which uses blue as its main color, and a celebration of Ferrari's 70 years in the United States.

Ferrari's connection to blue goes back 1952, when Alberto Ascari competed in the Indianapolis 500 Miles driving a Ferrari 375 Special featuring a blue nose. During the 1960s, drivers like John Surtees, Lorenzo Bandini, Ludovico Scarfiotti, and Chris Amon wore blue race overalls, a colour also worn by factory staff and mechanics.

Clay Regazzoni was the last Scuderia Ferrari driver to sport a blue racing overall in 1974, although the pit crew continued to wear blue outfits in subsequent years.

When Ferrari first made its mark in the United States seventy years ago, Luigi Chinetti was their representative. He competed with many sports cars under the N.A.R.T. (North American Racing Team) banner, featuring cars adorned with blue and white stripes in various championships.

Where's the blue?

Some Ferrari fans might have anticipated a fully blue livery, but it predominantly remains the classic red. The blue accents are noticeable on the wings, engine cover, halo, rear-view mirrors, race numbers, and wheel covers.
