Ferrari will bring a new engine to BarcelonaMay 8, 2019
The best result of Sebastian Vettel this season remain two third places in China and Baku, but the driver Ferrari hopes to fight for victory in the upcoming Spanish Grand Prix of Spain. Optimism to the four-time world champion adds an updated engine, which the team will bring to Barcelona.
Sebastian Vettel: “I know the track in Barcelona – the rise before the third turn and the ninth turn are the most interesting sections. The third sector is not as complicated as before, but very important for lap times. It is necessary to act cautiously and not to be mistaken – in the third sector it is easy to spoil tires and lose precious tenths.
I have always performed very well in Barcelona with Ferrari, although we have never won there yet. It’s time to fix it. “
Charles Leclaire: “In Barcelona, a racer has little to do with anything. Each of us knows the track down to the smallest details, because most tests pass here.
I remember the February tests with a positive, although then the temperature of the air and asphalt was lower. Nevertheless, the track in Barcelona is indicative – if your car is fast on it, it will be competitive in the rest of the season. I look forward to the opportunity to get back behind the wheel of the SF90! ”
Mattia Binotto, Team Leader: “The time has come for the Spanish Grand Prix. At this race, most teams bring new items, so we are waiting for progress from rivals. Now we are lagging behind in the championship and should reduce the backlog. We know that the speed of the modernization of the machine will be key in this season. The team has already brought a renewed aerodynamic body kit to Baku, but we will also have several new products in this area in Barcelona.
In addition, we will have a new power plant, which we will present in Barcelona ahead of schedule, because initially we prepared the second specification for Canada. Shell, in collaboration with our team, has developed a new oil that improves engine performance. Everyone in the team makes every effort to prepare these new products. ”
