Be ready for some disappointing news, Ferrari fans. Reports suggesting that Ferrari was coming to Austria with upgrades are apparently false.
Last month there were reports suggesting that Ferrari would have a drastically different car from the one we saw during winter testing.
They were supposed to introduce an upgrade to the engine and the gearbox along with the nose of the SF1000. However, 10 days before the season opener, a Ferrari spokesman claims that these are only rumors.
Now, however, they seem to be firmly behind Mercedes.
The Silver Arrows, on the other hand, confirmed that they have made some aerodynamic upgrades to the best car on the grid. This comes as a rude awakening to other teams and to those fans who thought they might get to witness a more competitive season this time around.
We’ll soon find out how big a gap actually exists between the likes of Mercedes and Ferrari when the season commences in Austria, on the 5th of July. (Disclaimer: Ferrari fans might not like the answer they get).
