Ferrari are arriving in Montreal, for the Canadian Grand Prix weekend with a heavily revised F14T which Italian media are calling ‘Version-B’.
Autosprint are reporting that the race at the circuit named after Ferrari’s favourite son, Gilles Villeneuve, is the do-or-die race for the team’s 2014 programme. A successful weekend would mean that the team will continue to focus on their current campaign, while another below par race will trigger full focus on the 2015 car.
Maranello have confirmed that they are taking substantial updates to Canada which should give them a boost, but are keen to stress that all is dependent on what their main rivals unleash at the same time.
Perhaps the biggest news is that as per Luca di Montezemolo’s promises and as confirmed recently by James Allison, Ferrari will be using “aggressive” engine maps to take more effective advantage of the electric charge of the MGU-H energy store and hence, in theory, should provide more power for Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen..
