Ferrari continues to tinker with SF-24 and is expected to release 'extreme update'

The 2024 season has started well for Scuderia Ferrari. During the test days in Bahrain and in the first two races of the new season, the Italian racing team showed that it is virtually Red Bull Racing’s only competitor. Yet the SF-24 has not yet managed to outdo the RB20. This could change from the race in Imola in May. Ferrari would then introduce an improved version of the SF-24.

Ferrari drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz were already positive about the car, which is also called the ‘1.0 version’, in the first few weeks of the season. Team boss Frédéric Vasseur also seems to have found his niche with the team from Maranello. The promising results so far make the car a good basis from which further design can be done.

Upgrade expected in Imola

According to the Italian website formu1a.uno, an upgraded version of the SF-24 is already in the wind tunnel in Maranello. The first changes to the car would be introduced in April. The first few weeks of the new season have given the Italian racing team a good idea of ​​the car’s strengths and weaknesses. This way the cooling system would function properly. During the first race of the season, Sainz also managed to get four tenths closer to the Red Bull compared to last year.

The upgrades expected in April will be minor. The fully updated SF-24 is expected a month later, during the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix. This would include a new floor and new air inlets. With this, the Italian team hopes to get closer to the RB20. The RB19 is reportedly a source of inspiration for the updated SF-24. Red Bull introduced an update to the RB19 at the 2023 Hungarian Grand Prix, which included adjusting the radiator duct.
