Ferrari Need a good result in Germany

Ferrari are aiming for a substantial point haul in the German Grand Prix this weekend.

The Italian team has scored just four points since introducing its exhaust-driven diffuser package at Valencia two races ago. It will have further changes to its diffuser for this weekend’s race.

They expect the F10 will work well on the Hockenheimring and allow them to challenge Red Bull:

"The circuit characteristics, on paper at least, are more likely than recently visited venues to play to the strengths of the Ferrari F10, although it is fair to say that for a variety of reasons, the fact that the car has improved dramatically in recent races has been masked by a series of unfortunate and unlucky incidents, that have kept it out of the top places.

Nevertheless, on the stop-start track in Montreal and the higher speed street circuit in Valencia, it proved competitive and even if it could not match the Red Bull benchmark at Silverstone, here too at the English circuit with its high downforce, fast corner characteristics, the car was good enough for the second row of the grid.

The engineering team at Maranello has not eased up at all and there are further updates on the car this weekend, with changes to the diffuser and therefore everything points to another competitive weekend for Ferrari.

No matter how much progress has been made in terms of car development, there are no points awarded for technical excellence and it is clear that, this weekend and at the race in Budapest just seven days later, Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro must bring home a big points haul if it intends to be fully in the hunt for the championship title.

Ferrari are 113 points behind constructors’ championship leaders McLaren, with a maximum of 387 left to be won this year."
