It is expected that Red Bull Racing and Ferrari will face another exciting battle at the Spanish Grand Prix. Although Max Verstappen finished the last two races winning, Marc Surer believes that Ferrari is the favourite for the weekend.

The Italian racing team had a strong start to the season with Charles Leclerc, but during the last GPs the team slumped a bit. However, Ferrari is coming to Barcelona with some major updates that should ensure it makes up a lot of time on Red Bull.

Surer has the expectation that the updates will make for a powerful Ferrari, which is why he labels the Italians as favorites. "They're bringing a big update that should make them the favorites again in Spain," the former Formula 1 driver let it be known in conversation with F1-insider.com. "The circuit was already suited to the driving characteristics of the Ferrari."

Red Bull also comes with updates

Ferrari is not the only team coming with updates, however, as Red Bull will also be making some changes to the car. Team boss Chrstian Horner previously revealed that Red Bull has saved as much as seven kilos in weight on the car.
