There Ferrari appears in Monza circuit for the weekend of Formula 1 2022 Italian GP with an obvious novelty: the helmets and overalls of drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz are yellow (which is also present in the paintwork of the single-seaters, in the paddock, in the hospitality caravan and on the walls of the Maranello team’s pits). For the home race weekend, therefore, the Cavallino team decided to replace the traditional red (who will return from the next round of the F1 World Championship) and is dressed entirely in an unusual color that has always been part of the Scuderia’s history.

The novelty is so evident that it is inevitable to ask why Ferrari drivers are wearing yellow helmets and overalls today at the Monza GP. Obviously, behind the choice of the Maranello team, there is a special reasonthat is, celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Monza circuit in which in 1933 (still under the aegis of Alfa Romeo) he won his first car race.

To honor the centenary of the Brianza racetrack, in fact, Ferrari has decided to ditch the now-iconic red to dye yellow modena the helmets and costumes of the drivers, but also parts of the F1-75 livery with which Leclerc and Sainz take to the track in this Formula 1 Italian GP. color that has a close connection with the Scuderia founded by Enzo Ferrari: yellow, the color of the city of Modena that gave rise to the Drake, has always been present in the official emblem as a backdrop for the black Prancing Horse (borrowed from the family emblem of Italian war hero Francesco Baracca).

As happened in Mugello in 2020, on the occasion of its 1000th Formula 1 GP (at the time it was the pantone red that replaced the traditional “Ferrari red”), also for the centenary of the historic Monza circuit, the italian team chose to celebrate the special event with a chromatic change (switching this time to canary yellow) that certainly doesn’t go unnoticed.
