Since Ferrari was tapped by the FIA at the end of 2019, there is nothing left of the dominant force source. In 2020, it was not possible to burn Ferrari engines, but this season it is already much better. However, the Italians still lacked power compared to Mercedes and Honda.
That may change from the Turkish Grand Prix. The Italians are introducing another improved version of their power unit this season. Ferrari adopted a smart strategy by fully committing to engine development in 2020, before development was frozen.
Ferrari has so far used a mixture of new parts and parts from the 2020 engine for its engine. For the last parts, one time upgrade is allowed, which is done by the team according to Gazzetta dello sport You’ll do it in Turkey or at the latest during the US Grand Prix.
This update should ensure that Ferrari drivers Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc are further ahead and therefore able to compete with McLaren. The two teams are vying for third place in the World Constructors’ Championship.
The introduction of the new engine is accompanied by a net penalty as both Ferrari drivers are on edge. The Italian power supply is currently around 20 hp compared to the Honda and Mercedes engine. A new engine should fill this gap.
