Sebastian Vettel: Ferrari “found some clever solutions” to packaging 2020 car

Sebastian Vettel has said that Ferrari “found some clever solutions” to making the packaging of their 2020 challenger, the SF1000, tighter at the back of the car in development for the upcoming season.

Vettel endured a tough 2019 at the Scuderia after being outlined as their number one driver before the start of the season.
 
12 months on through and he found himself out-performed by Charles Leclerc, who claimed two wins and seven pole positions, while the German picked up just one win in Singapore.
 
Under pressure for the upcoming season and with his current contract at Ferrari finishing at the end of the year, Vettel is confident with what the team have done for the SF1000.

"A lot of hours have gone into the car,” he said.

“We had the opportunity to see a direct comparison to last year and you can really spot the difference, especially down to packaging at the back. We found some clever solutions to do that. 

"It is also a little bit more red than last year, so I think it looks great.

"I think it is a step forward and I hope it feels like that when I drive it. There is whole team working right now to improve it."
