Mattia Binotto, Ferrari, Nurburgring, 2020
Binotto says Ferrari’s upgrades are working as expected

Binotto said the upgraded SF1000’s performance at the Eifel Grand Prix showed reflected what they expected from their wind tunnel and factory work.

I think we were not expecting a lot of difference. It was a small upgrade, it was completing a package we started to introduce in Russia.

I think they were positive in the way that they were correlating well with what we saw at the wind tunnel and back at the factory and that we’re taking the car in the right direction. There will be some further upgrades over the remainder of the season which will be important, as well.

For us what’s key is to finish developing the car but more important is to make sure that the direction we take is the right one for next season.
