Ferrari will not resume 2021 car development

Ferrari has reduced the likelihood of resuming 2021 car development to catch up with the battle for third place in the constructors’ world championship.

Ferrari has reduced the likelihood of resuming 2021 car development to catch up with the battle for third place in the constructors’ world championship.

While locked in the team’s battle behind title contenders Red Bull and Mercedes, Ferrari has vowed to stick to its almost exclusive focus on preparing a new car for the all-new 2022 rules.

However, McLaren took a new floor to Austria in addition to other less aerodynamic parts – and Lando Norris duly shone in both the qualifier and the race and finished in third place.

“We took a step forward,” Norris confirmed.

“I was – what – fourth in quali and two and a half tenths from pole (in the first race in Austria), and now we were second and a half tenth from pole.

“The car was definitely better and nicer to drive,” he added.

When asked if Ferrari should now respond with its own update, team manager Mattia Binotto replied: “I do not think so.

“McLaren made that stronger impression in Austria, that’s true, but that may change again on a different track,” he added.

“I think the outcome of our fight depends not primarily on the development, but on the characteristics of the circuit. So I still see this as an open fight.”

In addition, Binotto said Ferrari will not be too bothered if the Maranello-based team comes to the end of the season and is still behind McLaren.

“Finishing third or beating McLaren is not the priority for us,” the Italian insisted. “We have been focusing on the development of the 2022 car for a long time now.”
