Ferrari say they will make a significant step forwards with their car at the next race in Canada.
Technical director James Allison said the team will bring a significant upgrade for the race at the Circuit Gilleneuve in two weeks’ time.
“In Monaco, we continued to analyse the areas in which the F14 T can be improved,” he said, “and now we are looking ahead to the next race in Canada, where the package we will use there is a good step faster than the car we raced last weekend”.
However he cautioned that other teams may make gains of their own: “While our development programme has progressed well in recent weeks, it is hard to predict exactly what this will mean for the competitiveness of the F14 T, as we do not know what steps our competitors plan to bring to Montreal.”
“So any improvement has to be seen in relative terms, hoping that the track will deliver an answer worthy of all the efforts we have made so far.”
Ferrari are in third place after the first six races, behind Mercedes and Renault-powered Red Bull.
