A couple of significant anniversaries were celebrated during the 2019 FIA Formula One World Championship season, the first being that it marked the 70th running of the Formula One World Championship itself. But 2019 was also a special year for the championship's longest running team, Scuderia Ferrari, as it was 90 years ago, in 1929, that the company was established by Enzo Ferrari and his associates.
The designation of the team's 2019 car, the SF90, was a celebration of this anniversary and the Maranello marque decided to honour this achievement in a suitable manner at the first race of the year in Melbourne, Australia. Over the Australian Grand Prix weekend, the SF90 livery, the drivers’ race suits and some of the team’s track equipment bore the logo celebrating 90 years of the Scuderia, as can be seen on Bburago's excellent pair of new models, on the sides of the airbox behind the driver's head and on the front wing endplates.
New driver, Charles Leclerc, scored two wins in his début season (including a win at Monza) alongside seasoned campaigner, Sébastien Vettel, who added another victory to the tally. The drivers finished 4th and 5th respectively overall.
Bburago's brace of beauties correctly wear a sublime matt red finish and the graphics are all there, including the special "90 YEARS" logos. Detailing is very good and the models represent excellent value, with driver figures included.
Don't just buy one, splash out and get both - they look absolutely superb together, don't you think?
