The SF71H was presented in front of a live audience at Ferrari's headquarters in Maranello, Italy, four days before the official start of F1's pre-season testing at Barcelona.
For the fourth consecutive year 38-year-old Raikkonen and four-time world champion Vettel, 30, will spearhead the Scuderia's campaign. The SF70-H's distinctive sidepod concept has been evolved into a more aggressive design this year and the rear of the auto nipped in around the power unit to aid airflow to the rear.
Vettel added: "I don't think the halo will bother, I think it's much less intrusive than I thought".

Drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen were both in attendance at Ferrari's Maranello base as the design was revealed - complete new halo cockpit protection technology. "The way the team has come out with a competitive vehicle at the beginning, the way we have improved both chassis and engine, on all fronts I think it has been outstanding. If you look at the body, it's a very narrow body and I think those are the main concepts of this new vehicle". "We maintained aggressive concepts", Binotto said.
Presenting the SF71H model on Thursday, Ferrari technical director Mattia Binotto said the main differences from last year's auto are a slightly longer wheelbase, more aggressive side ducts and "a very narrow body". "With this auto, it's designed into it so you shouldn't see it when you're driving".
