Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) plans to bring a significant F1 engine upgrade later this season when it introduces its final power unit component of the Y 2021 campaign. Ferrari has not yet made all the changes it wanted to make with its power unit.
The timing of the introduction is not clear, but Ferrari team Boss Binotto confirmed that it will not happen before the Italian Grand Prix next month.
Looking ahead to the prospects after the Summer break, starting at Spa, Boss Binotto said: “It will be a difficult race for us, because we are seven tenths short of the best and most of these tenths, at least 60 per cent, comes from the engine.
“We lack this compared to the best and therefore we consider ourselves to be behind Mercedes and Honda to date.
“On a track like Belgium, if you look at our simulations, it’s a track where the engine matters a lot and on a qualifying lap I think the difference will be significant.”
