Ferrari has taken the wraps off its 2015 Formula 1 challenger.

The Maranello squad hopes the SF15-T will contend for the championship with four-time world champion recruit Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen behind the wheel.

The SF15-T, designed by James Allison, features a long flat protruding nose which resembles the design unveiled by McLaren-Honda earlier this week.

After a season without victory, the Italian team has undergone an extensive staff reshuffle during the off-season under new boss Maurizio Arrivabene in a bid to redress the team’s slump in fortunes.

Key departures have included engineering director Pat Fry and chief designer Nikolas Tombazis.

The changes followed the capture of Vettel as a replacement for double world champion Fernando Alonso.

New signing Vettel will debut the SF15-T at the opening pre-season test at Jerez, Spain which begins on Sunday.
