Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto says that the Scuderia are taking cues from Mercedes' W10 as they look to bring upgrades to their car which will help in their battle against the Silver Arrows. Ferrari's bold aero design for 2019 turned heads in pre-season, but has not delivered consistently yet on-track.
Both Ferrari and Alfa Romeo came up with front-wing designs markedly different to most of the rest of the field, with the new regulations for 2019 sending teams down differing paths.
However, Binotto says the rear wing will soon be changed, with Ferrari looking to their rivals for inspiration.
"A rear wing like the one Mercedes has is coming," he is quoted by Germany's Auto Motor und Sport.
Mercedes have taken one-two finishes in each of the opening three races of the season, despite Ferrari holding a distinct advantage on the straights.
Former Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg said during the Chinese Grand Prix, which saw Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc finish third and fifth, that he had spoken to members of the Ferrari team who claimed that the new rear wing would be in place for the Spanish Grand Prix.
Auto Motor und Sport have reported that the changes may also necessitate a change to the front wing on the SF90 in order to unlock its true potential.
