    smart thing to do....the more time we have focusing on 2020 and getting a head start, the better.....this year's lost anyway, sadly it was lost as soon as it started in OZ
    I'm hoping that the SF1000 proves to be a championship winning car, maybe even a BEAST!!!

    They have been doing it for the past few years when season seems to go away from them. Sadly, we seem to lose out on in-season development, ALWAYS.

    Same old story then, but dare we hope that Binotto has been playing down some small differences which may make the SF90 more competitive and doesn't want to shout about it? It has been reported that they have learned a lot in recent races and now know what some of the problems have been and are addressing them. The design of the front wing was the biggest mistake and not easily rectified, but what if all of a sudden we're back on track, making the tyres work, and can use our 'superior' power unit to the max? Unlikely, I know, and if it rains as predicted, my theories and hopes will go straight out of the window!

    I would absolutely love it if the Ferrari was even just a tenth of a second faster a lap than the Mercedes, but I just don't see it happening. I really hope I'm wrong.

    I thought we had no upgrades:

    An overview of the SF90’s bargeboard region which is now made up of a collection of surfaces that all improve performance and efficiency.

    Same old story from Ferrari....they either bring updates that don’t work, or in this case, NO updates at all....in a way is better to NOT waste money on a car that was a TURD from the beginning of the year....so mind as well save money and try and work hard on next years contender....this year was lost in OZ before it even began...

    Sad but true

    Not on 2020, Majorly it’s for 2021 project where regulations gets changed.
    Rumour is that siesta, costa will extensively work on 2021 project after summer break 2019.

    Unless the money is spent trying to get the cars right , it would be worse. What gets done this year a far as spending on the cars goes to next year. What worked or did not. Don't do it twice! Drivers pay before results ! There's 50 million reasons right there that should be changed. How do you make a multi year contract ? Fans in general don't even know how much the rest of the team big shots get paid. Results don't seem to count there either.

    "The aerodynamic updates of Ferrari for Hungary will be seen particularly ahead of the sidepods (front), with solutions that have been validated in the CFD and wind tunnel.

    Ferrari also analyzed the reliability of the power unit after the recent failures."

    Must improve rapidly though, Mark Hughes said Mercedes aero upgrade in Germany was worth half a second!!

    Yet Hamilton was only 0.3s ahead of Max in qualifying. Somehow doesn't add up.

    Mercs upgrade for German GP is a failure. Thought they sorted cooling issue, but car was unstable a bit.

    With the exception of gremlins, the car does look like it has greatly improved, considering where it was in Australia.

    Agreed. Mercedes seemed to have easily the fastest car at Silverstone, but never dominated in Hockenheim.

    Mercs strength is DF & front end limited. This is where ferrari lacks, they seem to struggle on long-run pace at front end limited tracks. With current FW philosophy, it’s even more where rear end of the car is unstable.

    The only way the lack of updates and allowing Red Bull to catch up is acceptable, is if we abandoned this concept and went to an inwash design next year.

    The other thing is, if we continue down this development path, LeClerc will continue to be faster than Vettel.

    Hopefully Aldo Costa will come and set this thing straight.
