Ahead of the Emilia Romagna GP, Mattia Binotto made it clear that Ferrari would not bring any updates as it is a sprint race weekend. “I think it’s going to be a tough weekend as far as bringing updates and trying to evaluate them in Friday’s practice, because obviously you have to focus on qualifying in the afternoon. For us, there won’t be much at Imola because, once again, we believe it’s not the right place,” said the Ferrari team principal at the time.
What was certain was that Red Bull brought a pack of updates and clearly won the race, ending the weekend with Helmut Marko saying that “it was worth having the updates”.
Lagging behind direct rivals in this field, Ferrari will bring an update to the US. Mattia Binotto revealed that the team will assemble the F1-75 “some new parts”, but stressed that this is not a big upgrade package. This should happen in Barcelona. However, as the new Miami layout is a medium-low load circuit, the team will respond with some aerodynamic refinements and it is assumed that the evolution of the power unit – used by Carlos Sainz in Imola – will be mounted on the two-seater.
“We are quite confident that it will be efficient,” said Binotto, quoted by Motorsport-Total.com. Will it be enough to win the Miami GP debut?
