|Ferrari will be sucking Mercedes' exhaust fumes all year long|
Ferrari have reportedly made performance gains with their engine just in time for the Australian Grand Prix this weekend.
According to Autosport, the Scuderia have unlocked an extra 10HP on the power unit, despite initially aiming to have at least the same power as they had at their disposal last year.
With engine technical chief Corrado Iotti at the helm, a focus has been put on boosting performance at low and medium speeds, and number of new features have been developed with a lighter turbocharger system now in place.
Ferrari are also looking to bring more noticeable performance with further specifications of their engine, especially now there are just three power units available to use before penalties are enforced.
Only problem is – Mercedes gained a reported 50 HP and their engine makes over 1,000 HP.
