Ferrari confirm further upgrades for Austria

Ferrari will bring more updates to the Austrian Grand Prix as the Scuderia look to fix the SF90's weaknesses after a frustrating French GP. Sebastian Vettel claimed that most of the new parts brought to Paul Ricard were eventually removed as the weekend went on.

Vettel finished fifth in Le Castellet from seventh on the grid, while Charles Leclerc took the final podium spot behind another dominant Mercedes one-two led by Lewis Hamilton.

However, Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto countered Vettel somewhat, saying that elements of the upgrade had remained on the car.

And Binotto hopes the Red Bull Ring, where long straights could help Ferrari close the gap, will also see more development on Ferrari's side.

He said: "We are happy to be getting back on track so quickly, because it's the best way to put ourselves to the test again to try and understand the elements that did not go according to plan in France.

"We have various test items to evaluate, mainly in order to give us a clearer picture as to why some of the updates we brought to Le Castellet did not work as expected.

"The Austrian track is very different to Paul Ricard. The first sector has long straights and braking in a straight line, while the second part is tighter, with a mix of low and medium-high speed corners.

"The forecast is for very hot conditions, so it will be a demanding weekend on the cooling front, both for the engine and the brakes, which means tyre management will also be very difficult."
