"We know very well that the characteristics of Monza are similar to Spa and Barcelona," he said, "which is less suitable for our car. I am sorry because it is the Italian grand prix, but I want to be a realist," Arrivabene added. "I have no intention to deceive the Tifosi -- I prefer to say things as they are."
Ferrari may, however, get a boost from an upgraded engine, benefitting from the exchange of perhaps two in-season development 'tokens'. "We might spend some tokens, but it will be very little, therefore it is not worth talking about a 'super power unit'," said Arrivabene. (GMM)
