Ferrari’s contender for the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship was designed not only to consolidate the Scuderia’s 2017 strengths but also with the specific intention to negate rival Mercedes’ noticeable advantage at the high-speed circuits. In the words of Ferrari Technical Director, Mattia Binotto, whilst speaking about the SF71H at its launch, ‘If we take stock of what we did last year, in low-speed tracks we always did well while in circuits where the speed was higher we were suffering a little more. So aerodynamic development was sought in that respect….’ To this end, the SF71H was designed with a longer wheelbase, an evolution of bodywork design around the sidepods and a more honed rear-end. These improvements were joined by a much larger airbox opening, due to a repackaging of the cooling system along the centre of the SF71H.
Driven by World Champions Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Räikkönen, the SF71H took two wins in the first three Grands Prix of the 2018 season. It also set two new track records in Bahrain and Shanghai during qualifying. At Silverstone, a notoriously high-speed track, Vettel’s win showed that Binotto’s design ambitions for this 2018 contender had not been in vain.
This fine 1:18 scale model of the Ferrari SF71H has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops with the co-operation and assistance of Ferrari regarding original finishes, materials, archive imagery and drawings. The use of supremely accurate digital scanning of the original car has allowed us to perfectly recreate every detail at scale. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
Every Amalgam 1:18 scale model is supplied in a luxury black box with a protective outer carrying sleeve. Each model is mounted on a polished black acrylic base protected by a clear acrylic dust cover. The base holds a booklet containing the certificate of authenticity along with information and collateral material about the car. The model title and original branding is displayed on a polished stainless steel plaque mounted at the front end of the base.
