New Ferrari team principal Matteo Binotto described the team’s new design for the 2019 F1 season as an evolution of last year’s car.which was launched today in Maranello.
“Starting in 2018 we got really good achievements,” said Binotto, who replaced Maurizio Arrivabene in charge of the team last month.
“I think the car is a development of last year’s car, it’s not a revolution. I think we simply tried to push again, raise the bar, raise the level, tried to be as extreme as we could.”
Refinements in the car’s power unit has allowed the team to shrink its bodywork and improve its aerodynamics, explained Binotto.
“I think if you look at it in all the details, certainly we try really to push very hard, being innovative. The roll hoop is very narrow and very slim. If you look as well at the bodywork on the back, very slim I think.
“And that is thanks to the entire job, which you cannot see because it is below, in terms of engine installation, power unit installation, packaging. A lot of effort has been done and I think that the final shape is somehow the result of all this effort and we like it.”
