Pat Fry Ferrari technical chief says that he is disappointed with Ferrari’s performance level at the moment, and he insist Ferrari still a lot of work to do. Fry also added Ferrari not expecting podium finish in early races.
The reporters asked where he felt Ferrari stood and if he was excluding podium finishes at present, Fry replied: “At the moment, I’d say yes. But I suppose I’m always slightly pessimistic.”
“I am disappointed by our performance level at the moment,” said Fry. “I think we’ve got a lot of work to do. The change we made last week to the exhaust position has put us a little bit on the back foot and we’re trying to optimise to that. We’ve obviously still got a lot of work going on at the factory and we’ll have new bits to test in Melbourne.”
“Testing is always hard to see exactly where you are,” he said.
“We knew historically what fuel levels people have run, so we’ve got an idea where they are, but if they’ve changed what they’ve done for the last two or three years, I could either be depressed, more disappointed or less disappointed, I don’t know.
“I think we’ve still got a reasonable amount of work to do.”
