Ferrari set to splash some yellow on F1-75 for Monza


Ferrari is determined to shine bright at its home race at Monza next weekend, perhaps with the help of a splash of yellow on its F1-75.

The Italian outfit has just released on social media its exclusive "Giallo Modena" special edition t-shirt that Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz will be sporting at the Italian Grand Prix.

So could the one-off team kit pre-announce a revamped livery for the Scuderia's F1-75?

There has so far been no official indication that such a scheme is in the works, but Ferrari is expected to add a special touch to its car for its home race in its 75th anniversary year.

And yellow being the historic color of the city of Modena, blending in a ray of sunny inspiration to help spur on the Scuderia's chargers next weekend seems timely given its recent run of disappointing performances.

While the Scuderia's machines have always been draped in red since the start of the F1 World Championship, and indeed well before, yellow Ferraris have also been a big part of the House of Maranello's history.

But they were usually machines entered by Belgium's legendary Ecurie Francorchamps founded by Jacques Swaters, although Belgian ace and four-time Le Mans winner Olivier Gendebien was entrusted with a yellow works 156 'Sharknose' at the 1961 Belgian Grand Prix.

Later on, several Ferrari F1 cars and sportscars raced by Jacky Ickx often sported yellow racing lines in tribute to the Belgian.
