Ferrari is to bring aerodynamic updates to the Malaysian Grand Prix (Sepang).
Many F1 teams have switched their focus entirely to Y 2017, Ferrari elected to continue developing its SF16-H.
With millions of pounds of prize money at stake in the battle with Red Bull to finish runner-up behind MercedesAMG, Ferrari keeps pushing to improve its racecar until the end of the Y 2016 campaign.
Ferrari will bring several aerodynamic tweaks to its car for Sepang, which will be both track specific because of the cooling requirements of the venue but also aimed at increasing downforce.
Sebastian Vettel declared after the Singapore Grand Prix that he was confident Ferrari’s package had been improved recently and that its update push could help deliver strong results in the final stages of the campaign.
“I think if we get everything right [it can happen],” explained Mr. Vettel. “We know we have a strong package for sure.
“Some races we didn’t deliver all we could – some were up to us, and some because of stuff that happened. But for sure it didn’t end up so far the way we wanted, and we are not where we wanted to be.
“I think we believe in ourselves. For sure we are not entirely where we want to be in terms of raw pace, sometimes better or sometimes worse, but at tracks like Singapore it is generally more close.
“We expected to be competitive, and then there is always a chance to win or fight for a solid podium. Unfortunately it didn’t turn out for both of us.
“But we have confidence. There are some bits coming still. We are here to fight and that is what we are going to do.”
