New Upgrades on their way, focus on 2024

In an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport, Fred Vasseur laid down the timeline for the next upgrades. He said Ferrari will introduce their new upgrades in Qatar or Austin. This will leave them with 5 or 6 races to gauge their performance.

Fred Vasseur said that Ferrari has stopped its development on the SF-23. The development parts are in the pipeline. This means that all of their resources are now focused on their 2024 F1 challenger. The main focus is to make a car where the driver doesn’t always have to be on the limit. This is important given the frequent crashes Charles Leclerc has had this season trying to outperform the car.
