Italian-Dutch luxury sports car manufacturer Ferrari have been pressured to redesign their racing car following some challenges discovered during testing in February.
Mattia Binotto, who is the head of the team, said the team had been forced to revise their approach to the car’s aerodynamics following their checks into its performance flaws.
Her said work on understanding why the car was off the pace contributed to a major change of direction in terms of development.
After the redesign, the car will run in pre-season specification at this weekend’s opening race in Austria.
The Ferrari upgrade is due to make its debut at the Hungarian Grand Prix on 17-19 July.
