F1: Seb Vettel, “Our SF1000 ‘definitely a step up from last year'”


Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) has been clear that the goal it’s SF1000 racer is to increase downforce, with last year’s SF90 known to have very low drag but less cornering might than its Mercedes counterpart.

Sebastian Vettel, when asked whether he had felt that up in downforce during his 73 laps in the SF1000 Thursday en route to P5 in the classification, he replied: “Yes. Enough? We will see, but it’s definitely a step up from last year.

Obviously I had some laps and you feel very quickly the characteristics of the car in some places,” he added, “in other places I think there are some similarities to the 2019 car, but I think it’s still very early days. We’ve still got plenty of stuff on the list still to go through for the next four days to try and see what the cars doing, how it will respond to certain set-ups and windows where we use the car.

Obviously we had a clear plan of what we wanted to achieve with this year’s car, and it is going in that direction, but now I think it’s up to us to really explore the car back to front and see how it responds on track.”

Charles Leclerc subbed for his team mate on Day 1 of the test, but Mr. Vettel will now spend Friday in the car, as he looks to build up even more of a rapport with the SF1000 before Week 1 draws to a close in Spain.
