Ferrari postponed engine upgrade
Ferrari has decided to postpone the engine upgrade planned for the coming US Grand Prix.
The Maranello based team still has four upgrade ‘tokens’ and Ferrari team boss Maurizio Arribavene had earlier said that there is a possibility of a new engine specification for the race in Austin. However, the final decision was to delay introduction of modified engine. It is thought that the new Ferrari’s power unit is the basis of the design for the next season.
“We still have four tokens left and plenty of ideas on how to spend them, both on increasing power for this season and also looking ahead to 2016 title assault,” said Lorenzo Sassi, Ferrari engine chief.
Ferrari became much more competitive during second half of the 2015 season and Sebastian Vettel still have very small chance to win championship title, but it is obvious that the Italian team must find a way to compete with Mercedes in the long run.
