Ferrari will add updated components to its SF1000 for next week’s Eifel Grand Prix at the Nürburgring, but the developments will not be “major” according to team boss Mattia Binotto.
The Scuderia saw a slight improvement of its performance last weekend in Russia after implementing several upgrades, although Charles Leclerc, who finished sixth, was the sole points-scorer for the Italian outfit at Sochi.
The changes included a revised rear-wing endplate and a modified profile of the SF1000’s front cape section. More tweaks are in store for next week’s return of F1 to the Ring.

“We’ll have a few more upgrades at the Nurburging,” said Binotto. “I mean, not major, but still for us I think it’s important considering our level of competitiveness.
“Then we will focus mainly on the diffuser for the remaining part of the season, but when is not yet defined.”
Formula 1’s restrictive rules that will remain prevalent next year will leave little scope for significant development. But Binotto is confident that Ferrari will still be able to move forward with its current car.
“Obviously you have reduced opportunity in the wind tunnel due to regulations,” explained the Swiss engineer.

“But for us it’s still important to develop the current car in view of next year, certainly to understand eventually what’s wrong with this one and to address it for the future.”
