Mattia Binotto says Ferrari have changed their car design for 2020!

Ferrari boss Mattia Binotto says that his team have changed the focus of their car for 2020, concentrating more on downforce rather than pure speed. Ferrari had by far the most powerful engine and their straight line speed was better than rivals Mercedes and Ferrari, although they struggled elsewhere on the tracks.

The Italians won just three races in 2019 as Mercedes ran away with both titles for the sixth year in succession. Binotto and the rest of the Scuderia will be desperate to get closer to the Silver Arrows and disrupt their party.

He told Motorsport.com: “Our car next year is aiming for a lot more downforce. And by having more downforce, more drag. We are not expecting to be as fast on the straight as we have been.

"We have changed, by quite a lot, our power unit, in terms of architecture, the cylinder.

"It's quite a big review just to show that here again, there is much that can be done. The change we are looking for next year is quite significant changes on the engine itself."
