Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto has ruled out copying Mercedes' 2019 aerodynamic design, despite the Silver Arrows' dominant start to the season. Mercedes have taken one-two finishes in all five races so far this year, and look set to do so again in Monaco this weekend.
Ferrari and their power unit customer team Alfa Romeo turned heads in pre-season when their 2019 car designs were unveiled, with both sporting noticeably different designs of front wings.
Altered aerodynamic regulations for this season had pushed F1's teams down different paths, but the signs suggest that Mercedes got it correct, while Ferrari have struggled.
However, Binotto believes Ferrari's concept remains sound and just has not yet been maximised to its full potential.
