The new Ferrari Roma Spider presented last Thursday, is ready to replace the Portofino M in Ferrari's lineup as the company's entry-level drop top. It uses the same 612-hp twin-turbo V-8 and 2+2 seating layout, but in the Roma Spider the heavy folding hard top will be replaced by a lighter, more traditional and old school soft folding top. The Portofino M, still one of the most loved Ferrari, was an evolution of the Portofino, before called California and CaliforniaT. Its linage goes all the way back to 2008, where the original California used a 4.3-liter naturally aspirated V-8 making 453 hp. Now Ferrari chose to change its own narrative, with this soft top edition on the Roma style car and a new price that will be slightly higher.
Despite starting from the 15th place on the grid, Verstappen (Red Bull) finished second only to his team mate Perez who easily won the Jeddah F1 GP. Third place for Alonso (Aston Martin) after he was reinstated on the podium even if he was penalized with 10 seconds penalty to not serve correctly a previous penalty. In fourth and fifth place Russell (Mercedes) and Hamilton (Mercedes) able to recover from the 8th starting place. Sixth and seventh place for Sainz and Leclerc and their Ferrari. Alonso had already celebrated his podium number 100 when the FIA announced the new penalty. After few hours, the FIA reinstated the 3rd place for the Spanish driver, after the Aston Martin team asked for a review. In a first moment the stewards said Alonso not served correctly the first 5 seconds penalty.
