"We know that the engines are frozen for the next four seasons. Therefore, it was important to start with a powerunit that has no power residue on the competition," says the Italian. "At the beginning of the past season we had 20 to 25 hp residue. Our first goal was to eliminate this residue."

"At the moment we do not understand the values ​​from the track not 100 percent. Although our GPS measurements are reasonably accurate, but not super precise. In addition, they are influenced by the weight of the car, and without this data estimates are difficult," explains Binotto.

 because of unclear rules: Ferrari is not testing in Fiorano with the previous year's car © Motorsport Images Whether Ferrari is allowed to drive with the SF21 in Fiorano, remained unclear shortly before the start of the test on the new Formula 1 season Ferrari this week a four-day test on its test track in Fiorano. In doing so, the previous year's car SF21 should be used, but shortly before the start of the test, the racing team had to change its original plans. The reason: It was not clear if you can actually use a car from the past year.

The tests can not be reliably assessed how hard the opposing cars are. Therefore, to win reliable data, waiting for the first race weekend. There are moments, "about qualifying or at the start of the race in which we know how hard the cars are. These are data we do not have at the tests."

"Then there is also the windshade effect. So you always have to pay attention to the tests that you only rated laps that have been driven without external influences. These are all reasons why we usually wait three to four races until we are waiting for three to four races Statistics put together. Because the more data is available, the more accurate the cut of calculations. "

, however, of course, all teams already analyze the winter tests - knowing that the numbers could deviate more from reality than at a later date in the season. And there was a pleasant level from Ferrari view.

"We have performed a calculation, and this first analysis has revealed that we are on the level of others from what we can see. We are certainly not back, and maybe we even have a tick more power" , says Binotto, but restricts: "This is still without guarantee."

pleasing: The encouraging data that Ferrari has won the test stands with the new PowerUnit, have confirmed the tests in Spain and Bahrain on the route. Thus, Ferrari seems to have left the long-term sequences of the Ferrari-FIA engines affair , which has taken place by 2019 and at the beginning of 2020 have left behind.

and also chassis side is bombotto optimistic: "I think we will be competitive next weekend. What we can not say is whether we are two tenths in front or two tenths behind. Red Bull makes a very strong impression on me, especially max. Maybe a Red Bull will be ahead of us and one behind us. But I do not know that. "

"I think we should be at a level that allows us to move in front, and even if we should have a backlog, this will not be insurmountable. I think we're talking about intervals that you are talking about four to four Five races can have caught up, "says Binotto and complements:" The starting position is good. How well, we have to find out now. "

Far from the quickest in its class, the RC instead prioritizes styling, comfort, and value.The RC dates back to 2014, and the car's age is evident in several areas. A series of updates did arrive with the 2019 model year, and the RC rolls into 2022 unchanged from last year. Surprisingly, given this shrinking segment, Lexus still fields a broad spectrum of RC models. They range from the turbocharged four-cylinder, rear-wheel-drive RC300 to the V-8-powered RC F, which, in Fuji Speedway Edition form, can reach six figures. In the heart of the lineup, you'll find a 3.5-liter V-6 in 260- (RC300 AWD) and 311-hp (RC350) strengths. Lexus has never offered a manual in this car.
