Ferrari is hoping its Russian Grand Prix upgrades are a « small step » that will help it move away from its « bottom » performance in Formula 1 in 2020

The Italian team has arrived at the Russian GP with a small batch of corrective updates for the SF1000, having identified aspects of this year’s car that can be tuned to compensate for some of its inefficiencies. number of pieces expected in upcoming races

The larger and more visible of these updates is inspired by Mercedes, with its latest rear wing update using an upper rear cutout with serrations (red arrow) that alters the vortex formed at wing tip

This solution was first presented as part of the extensive upgrade package that Mercedes presented in Germany last season It was later assimilated by Racing Point and Red Bull

The end plate is also much thinner in the rear section to accommodate much thicker wash strikes (blue arrow), while the hanging portion of the end plate now only has three sections , instead of the seven used previously

Ferrari sporting director Laurent Mekies has said he hopes the recent tough races are « at the bottom » for the team – and now they can work methodically to improve

When asked if the rate of progress this season has been as fast as expected, Mekies said: « The trajectory was definitely not where we wanted, otherwise we wouldn’t have been in this situation

« We hope we have hit rock bottom which means it didn’t go the way we wanted at all

« But I think we are very aware and very aware of what we need to tackle and the weaknesses

« These new parts are not going to increase the car’s lap time, but they do help to understand if we are able to modify the characteristic that we don’t like on the track, and that’s what we need to do. test very carefully

« This is one of the many small steps that will be part of our promising recovery journey »

Mekies expects other small improvements to be tried in future races, as he admitted there was no instant fix to the SF1000’s performance issues.

« We have a few things on the car that stem from the fact that we have identified areas for improvement, and there are a few more to come next week [at the Nürburgring], » he said.

« Again, like I said, these are not simple lap time elements These are elements to indicate that we are working on the right things with our car characteristic
