Ferrari reveals 2023 upgrade plans

While some teams have already shifted focus over to their 2024 cars, Ferrari is persisting with developing this year's SF-23.

Ferrari Team Principal Fred Vasseur has said his team will continue to develop this year's SF-23, though any major upgrades will not be seen at the next two Grands Prix in the Netherlands and Italy.

Ferrari has had a disappointing 2023 season and sits fourth in the Constructors' Championship with 191 points, with Charles Leclerc's second place in Austria the team's best result so far this year.

But while teams such as Mercedes have largely shifted development programmes over to their 2024 cars, Vasseur noted that Ferrari was still focusing on both this year's and next year's vehicles.

"We have still some upgrades to come before the end of the season, but the project for the '24 car is a different project, and even if we have some carryover from one car to the other, the projects are completely different," Vasseur said in response to a question from RacingNews365.com.

The Frenchman added, however, that any significant updates to Ferrari's 2023 car would not come until after the next two Grands Prix, citing the contrasting requirements of the Zandvoort and Monza circuits.

"We won't have big upgrades next weekend, because [Zandvoort and Monza are] two different tracks, and so they will come a bit later," said Vasseur.
