Ferrari ‘doing level best’ to become competitive in F1

Technical director James Allison insists that Ferrari is doing all it can to become a contender for victories in F1 2014.

Ferrari technical director James Allison insists that the team is doing all it can to become a regular threat to F1 pacesetter Mercedes.

“Every season is dominated by the efforts back at the factory to try to improve the package,” he told the team’s official website, “If you’re in front, you work to stay in front and, if you’re not, then your efforts are aimed at moving your way up the grid.

“Currently, we’re doing our level best across every aspect of the car: mechanically, aerodynamically, electronically, every single component, set-up-wise, everything we can do to try to improve is being done. In recent races, we have brought more upgrades than usual to the track and this has improved our position marginally, but we just need to keep fighting the same fight.

“We have upgrade plans race by race. If we do a good job with all of those, it will start to tell and we will start to see Ferrari run more consistently relative to the opposition. But it’s not an easy fight – and it’s a fight that never ends.”
