Title hopes over, Ferrari explain why 2019 upgrades will continue

Title hopes over, Ferrari explain why 2019 upgrades will continue

Mattia Binotto has explained that Ferrari will not give up on developing its 2019 car, in the hope that it will help them produce a machine capable of winning straight from the off in 2020.

Ferrari's billing as pre-season title favourites has fallen flat this year, with Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc yet to win a race heading into the summer break.

Although their chances of ending a title drought stretching back to 2008 are in tatters, Binotto says upgrades will still be put on the SF90.

"Hopefully what we can do is to have more downforce at a similar level of efficiency. I think that should be the two objectives," he said.

"I think the direction of development is that more downforce is acquired, and I will not at least put in that equation the efficiency. I think we should simply put more downforce and be as efficient as we can.

"And then we need to use properly our downforce, which is in how can we set up and have a proper balance on the car - still here I think there's areas where we can improve and we should improve.

"I think that whatever we can do in the current season will be to the benefit of the next one, so I don't think we should stop at any stage the development on the current season, because again, I think [it] can be passed over [to 2020].

"But we need to organise ourselves for 2021, no doubt. We've got now some responsible [people] in the technical department, and together with them we need to carefully take our decisions relative to the priorities."
