Photographer notices new Ferrari paint for 2015

New paint on the SF15-T gives the car no lustre.

Ferrari has reportedly added a coat of new paint to its Formula One car for 2015.

After a dire 2014, the fabled Maranello team underwent a radical personnel shakeup and emerged at the opening winter test at Jerez apparently much more competitive.

But that pace is not what caught photographer Alex Galli's eye at Jerez, according to the Italian publication Omnicorse.

"The colour (of the SF15-T) is very nice because it does not reflect," he explained.

"I think it is a solution designed for the sponsor names to be read in any environment. But what really amazed me was when the rain stopped and the sun came out.

"In those conditions all the other cars had a mirror effect, while on the SF15-T that did not happen.

"Also, the drops of water on the bodywork create many reflections, but on the Ferrari they seemed to just slide away," said Galli.
