Arrivabene - Ferrari to Sustain 2015 development

Ferrari are poised to carry on developing the car throughout the remaining 7 races. This is according to Team Principle Maurizio Arrivabene who wants to see a "Gradual Development" in regards to the car's engine and chassis

"Now it's a kind of tactical decision on what we want to do with the rest of our tokens. For sure, we are still in development for this car, we don't give up and we will continue till the end of the season. 'Car', it doesn't mean engine, it means the overall car." 

Ferrari's updated Power Unit was proven to be a genuine success, as Kimi Raikkonen was only 0.350s of polesitter Lewis Hamilton - who also had an upgraded engine. Ferrari have 4 development tokens remaining and they will be used indefinitely before the season comes to a close in November. Arrivabene believes that the continuation of development throughout 2015 will without a doubt stand them in good stead for 2016. 

Ferrari have singled out 2016 as a year for where they can seriously mount a title challenge, rather than being "Catchup Artists"  - a phrase which was used by Ferrari Chairman Sergio Marchionne during the Italian Grand Prix.
