F1 fans have let rip at the new Ferrari livery after a controversial move to include a green Mission Winnow logo on its engine cover.

Ferrari president John Elkann claimed the team has "learned the lesson" after the team's worst season in 40 years.

But fans were left unimpressed when Ferrari released its SF21 design on Thursday and appeared to add in some unwanted green in their famous colours.

The new paint job certainly had some fans fuming as the car goes from red to burgundy, before green is introduced on the top.

To make matters worse for fans, in a video presentation of the car, drivers Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc revealed the addition of the green was a last minute addition.

“Only one week ago, more or less” Spanish star Sainz said, about the green on the design.

“We didn’t expect the green."

“It was a last-minute change. I have to say I’m getting used to it, seeing it on the car," Leclerc said.

Fans slam Ferrari design

Fans blasted the green paint job as 'aggressive' and 'the worst' after the unveil.

Racing director Laurent Mekies agreed that "2021 is about the lessons learned in an incredibly difficult 2020 campaign.

"The last season has put us to the test both on track and at the factory.

"We have tried to learn from our mistakes and to improve in the areas where we were simply not strong enough.

"Of course, in context of frozen technical regulations and new financial regulations, there is a limit to how fast we can turn things around but nevertheless, we are trying to reconstruct our way back to the more competitive side of the grid."
