Ferrari has pledged to adopt an “aggressive” approach at the Australian Grand Prix this weekend in an attempt to beat Red Bull.

Red Bull has dominated the opening two rounds of the 2024 campaign with Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez crossing the line in first and second place in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia respectively.

Ferrari has secured a duo of podiums with Carlos Ssainz and Charles Leclerc scoring third-place finishes at the first two events.

However, it has been unable to challenge Red Bull who has continued its commanding form that saw it win 21 out of the 22 races staged last year.

Ferrari prevailed at the Australian Grand Prix two years ago when Charles Leclerc enjoyed a successful weekend, winning by over 20 seconds.

As it looks to repeat its success from 2022, Ferrari Team Principal Frederic Vasseur has asserted that his squad is deploying an “aggressive” strategy in Melbourne to best Red Bull.

“After a busy start to the season with back-to-back races in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, we’ve now made the longest trip of the year to Australia,” Vasseur said.

“The Albert Park track is a favourite with the drivers and one where Ferrari has always enjoyed a lot of support.

“We expect to be front runners on this track which could produce a similar pecking order to the one seen in Jeddah.

“We intend on adopting an aggressive approach with the aim of putting pressure on the team that’s won the first two races.”
