Ferrari prep Portimao upgrades as Binotto says development is ‘going in the right direction’ – Formula 1 RSS UK



Ferrari may be enduring their most challenging season since they finished a lowly fourth in the constructors’ championship back in 2014, but the Scuderia are working hard to claw performance back and will bring another upgrade to the Portuguese Grand Prix, according to Team Principal Mattia Binotto.

The team announced they took a “significant change of direction in terms of development” after disappointing pre-season testing pace and have therefore been upgrading their car at a rapid rate, having introduced ‘phase two’ of their upgrade package at the Eifel Grand Prix last week after bringing the first major update to Sochi.

After the Nurburgring race – which saw Sebastian Vettel finish 11th and Charles Leclerc seventh – Binotto said: “Of course, we are not satisfied with this result, but we continue to work on improving our overall performance level,”

“We saw signs of progress in qualifying, but the important thing is that the updates we are introducing seem to be going in the right direction, especially looking ahead to 2021. In the light of this, we should also have a few updates for the next race in Portimao.”
