According to Schmidt, a huge quantity of adjustments have actually been made in multiple areas, with the MGU-K, battery as well as electronic devices all new as well as the system being transformed from 400 to 800 volts.
He thinks that with such upgrades, the Scuderia are significantly on their back to the top of the field finally and also will certainly get there if they remain on the very same path next year.
“Ferrari gets on the way back to the top, especially if they currently gain in power,” he said.
“Next year they will most likely be able to change the combustion engine, the MGU-H and also the turbo-charger once again.
“They have actually already shown this year they get on the best course and I assume if Ferrari takes care of to make a similar action next year, they are additionally engine-wise back on the degree of Mercedes and Honda.”
That would certainly be a massive increase for Mattia Binotto and also co, with their engine being their major weakness since they were located to be breaking guidelines in that department back in 2019.
Even without the upgrade though, Carlos Sainz still took care of to end up on the podium last break in Russia.
