Ferrari will trial a new version of its blown diffuser at this weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix.
The team’s last iteration was launch at the Belgian Grand Prix, and it took until the following round at Italy for it to bear fruit, with Fernando Alonso taking the race win after starting from pole position.
“We now have a package that should work on all types of circuits,” the double world champion boasted to Auto Motor und Sport.
“We know Red Bull will be very strong at the next two circuits, but we should now be more consistent than we were before. Consistency is the key to this title.”
The revision to the blown diffuser will show a further integration of the diffuser and gearbox, with respect to the direction of hot exhaust gases through the rear bodywork.
Team boss Stefano Domenicali is adamant that Ferrari will not repeat the same error as it did at Spa-Francorchamps.
“We need to avoid a repeat of what happened in Belgium, where our developments failed to give us what we expected because we weren’t able to test them,” he said.
