Ferrari set 20-30 horse power boost in Barcelona
The Italian out Ferrari F1 is preparing to boost more horse power in Spanish Grand Prix.

Reports are doing the rounds that the Maranello team will debut an upgrade for its turbo V6 ‘power unit’ in June for the race in Canada.

But Germany’s Bild newspaper said a new specification will in fact make its bow in Barcelona in just under three weeks’ time.

The report said it could boost Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen’s 2015 car to the tune of 20-30 horse power, giving the SF15-T “almost as much power as Mercedes”.

Team boss Maurizio Arrivabene told Italy’s La Gazzetta dello Sport: “I want to thank all the people in Maranello who have been part of this work.

“It has been not only about developing the engine, but every single part of the car, realising in three months what normally would have taken six.

“I do not know if we will catch Mercedes, but I definitely like the idea of being able to put pressure on them,” he added. (GMM)
