Ferrari pushing through new concepts on 2019 car

Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto has revealed the Scuderia are already developing "new concepts" for the SF90 as they try to overturn Mercedes' dominant start to the 2019 season. The Silver Arrows have wiped the floor with the competition so far, scoring one-two finishes in every race so far.

Ferrari's pace in pe-season testing hinted at a return to red supremacy in F1, but the top of the standings remain as Silver as at any stage of the V6 Hybrid era.

Combining team principal and technical director roles, pressure has piled on Binotto just a few months into his tenure at the head of F1's most famous team.

But he remains calm ahead of this weekend's Monaco GP, where the Scuderia have been tipped to struggle, with fresh updates I the pipeline.

Binotto said: "Last week's testing in Barcelona and analyses carried out in Maranello confirmed just how much this year's tyres, which are very different to those we had in 2018, require different mechanical and aerodynamic settings to work properly.

"We are already working in Maranello on evaluating new concepts, as well as bringing some initial further updates here.

"This Grand Prix is celebrating its 90th anniversary, as indeed is the Scuderia, which makes this weekend even more special.

"It's a very different sort of race, where the track characteristics that can shake up the order could be jumbled up still further this weekend.

"As usual, qualifying will be very important because of the fact it's almost impossible to overtake. Of course, Monaco is Charles' home race and we know how much it means to him. It means a lot to us too."
