Plenty of updates in Ferrari pipeline
Ferrari will introduce a few "interesting developments" to the F2012 at the Belgian Grand Prix.

After dominating at Valencia, Silverstone and Hockenheim, Ferrari were slightly off the boil in Budapest with Fernando Alonso only managing to finish fifth after qualifying in P6.

The Spaniard admitted afterwards that the lack of development cost the team and Technical Director Pat Fry says they learned a few lessons from their disappointment in Hungary.

"It's true we had a handful of parts that did not work the way we had expected: there's always a chance that can happen in work like this," Fry told Scuderia Ferrari Racing News.

"The positive aspect is that we understood the problem and everything is alright now: that way, we can use this experience to move forward rather than being left confused about it. In fact, we have a clear idea on the direction we need to take and we have already begun to work in this direction."

Ferrari, though, will step up when it comes to development ahead of the race at Spa at the start of September.

"We have a few interesting developments that we will introduce at Spa, a track which, from an aerodynamic downforce point of view, is quite special, as indeed is Monza," he said.

"In fact, we will also have an aerodynamic and engine package specifically suited to the Italian track. Therefore a lot of work has been done, but there is still also a lot to do: we must continue to keep up the pressure to a high level."

He added: "We have developed a few small parts for Spa in the wind tunnel, while also concentrating on other updates for Singapore." Planet F1
