Ferrari have unveiled their new car for the 2017 season.

The SF70-H was launched on Friday by Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen, who have won five drivers' titles between them.

The pair were winless last season, finishing fourth and six respectively in the drivers' championship.

Ferrari, who won their last drivers' title in 2007, finished third in the constructors' championship last season, behind Mercedes and Red Bull.

Much is at stake this season for a new technical organisation which Ferrari have talked up despite what many considered to be an ill-advised decision split with former technical director James Allison, who is now at Mercedes.

The same can be said for Sebastian Vettel, who is entering the final year of his contract after a season in which tensions between him and the team were very obvious.

If they are not regular winners, the fall-out could be intense. For Ferrari, only winning will ever do. But the pressure has been mounting in recent years because they haven't been doing it anywhere near enough - and not at all in 2016, for the second time in three years.
