As if it were a shopping list, Laurent Mekies, sports director of Ferrari, has specified, point by point, in an interview for the magazine 'Auto Hebdo' the aspects that occupy all the attention of the technicians of Maranello for try to boost the performance of the SF90.

"We have not progressed as much as we would have liked since pre-season, we are behind in all areas in absolute performance." We need to improve on certain types of curves, aerodynamics, our mechanical grip and the operation of the tires. The interaction between what The car and what the tires do is one of the main keys.

The track is more inspired in Baku and Bahrain, where we were better, but we must be cautious because everything is moving fast, as we have seen since the beginning of the season ",
