Ferrari will not ignore qualifying pace

Formula One News » Ferrari will not ignore qualifying pace

Ferrari designer Pat Fry has told Autosport the team will not neglect qualifying pace even though long-run pace is becoming more and more important and is expected to become even more important during 2014.

“We’ve shown reasonable race pace and on all the tyre types we have used so far we have performed well,” said Fry
“However we still have a way to go to be quickest in qualifying and we are working very hard on that at the moment.
“We’ve been concentrating on the longer runs, even if they are not as long as in the past, because this year we expect more pitstops during a race.

“However, we have not ignored our qualifying pace. I am sure there is more to come on this front, as we learn more about our car and start getting the best out of it.”

“The key will be to try and move our car development programme forward quicker than the other teams do,” said Fry.
“It’s a tough cycle that will last all year and we need to at least match our 2012 development pace if we are to perform better in qualifying.

“So far we have worked well, all the way through from design to manufacture, improving on how we did things last year in terms of actually getting new bits onto the car. Also, our aero correlation is better.”
