After the two disastrous first rounds of the season, the German was able to find the connection in Budapest at least halfway and achieve a reasonably conciliatory result. "Austria one was an outlier, Austria two did not take place for us - and now we are here," said Vettel.
Fourth place in qualifying and seventh in the race: Is that an upswing to comprehend at? In any case, the traditional Italian Formula 1 team has extensively modified its SF1000 at the races in Russia and in the Eifel. Here we present the individual updates and how they work in detail.
Charles Leclerc, who ensured the mentioned Ferrari best performances at the Nürburgring, is impressed by the latest changes: "I think even the smallest update we made this weekend brought us in the right direction. "

wind deflector Ferrari did not "take a giant step" with the innovations on the car, "but we weren't looking for that either," says Leclerc. "It was a small step in the right direction and that is positive."Part one of the update package in Sochi
Ferrari had already used the first part of its upgrade package at the Russian Grand Prix in Sochi, namely a new front section including the adjoining air deflectors. Our picture shows the previous version and the new, smaller-scale solution.
Ferrari expects this to result in a more targeted flow of aerodynamically sensitive surfaces further back on the vehicle. Because these air baffles are also a little deeper than before, the arrangement takes up more air overall and can pass it on better. In interaction with the front wing, this improves the aerodynamic efficiency of the front section.
"I'm in no hurry": Vettel leaves the future open

Sebastian Vettel wants to take his time with the decision about his future after the fixed end at the Formula 1 team Ferrari at the end of the year. «It is realistic to be patient and to wait. It could take a few weeks or longer.
The approach is not new: Comparable aero parts were already found in 2019 on the VF-19 from the Ferrari customer team Haas. Ferrari picked this up for its latest update.Mercedes as a model for the rear wing innovation
The traditional team was also inspired by the rear wing upgrade, in this case from Mercedes. The end plates of the rear wing are now clearly based on the Mercedes model, with a serrated upper edge at the rear and larger cutouts instead of many small lamellas in the lower area of the end plate.
The second phase of the updates then followed at the Nürburgring, then no longer at the front and rear of the vehicle, but in the middle of the car. The core of these changes are the side wind deflectors in front of the side pods.
In the front, vertical element, the first incision was moved to the front (1) so that the flow to the entire component changes.New wind deflectors on the Ferrari SF1000
The upper boomerang part (2) has been given a stronger retaining strut (4) on the outside of the car. In addition, the lower boomerang is no longer attached directly to the upper one, but to a new, separate retaining strut (3). Overall, these struts are set significantly lower, with a new incision in the front area (3).
Ferrari has also rebuilt the front edge of the underbody (5), where individual "teeth" now protrude. These air baffles are intended to direct the air flow under the vehicle even more precisely.
In combination, the two updates from Russia and the Eifel should give the Ferrari SF1000 a better aerodynamic efficiency. Leclerc's Ferrari team-mate Sebastian Vettel, however, said at the Nürburgring: "Not a big difference."
