Ferrari: We will no longer be the fastest on the plains next year thumbnail

Ferrari chief Mattia Binotto has revealed that the Maranello team will design their car for the season 2020 completely differently, as they seek to address the shortcomings that pestered them this season.

While Ferrari dominated the long plains throughout the season, Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel had significantly more problems in medium-speed and slow turns.

Ferrari's pre-season 2019 goal is to eliminate problems and design a new car in a way that will allow the Maranell team to fight Mercedes and Crimson Bull on all racetracks, regardless of their configuration.

“The new car will be designed differently because we want to greatly increase downforce. As a result, next year we will probably no longer be the fastest on the plains. I think we have learned a lot from this year's mistakes and will be able to use that knowledge to develop a new car. We expect to be much faster in turns than we were this year. ”
