Ferrari ambassador Marc Gené has given his opinion on the new Ferrari car for the 2021 season and has pointed out that from in Maranello they have created a new power unit that has nothing to do with that of last year.
As reported by lasexta.com, Marc Gene explained that the Scuderia is trying to return to having a similar performance to that of two seasons ago, adding the new SF21 will have one of the best engines on the grid:
“I do not think we have recovered everything we lost compared to 2019, but a large part yes. The car is an evolution, but the engine is new. Last year Ferrari had the worst engine on the grid, but in 2021 we will have one of the best. I don’t know if it will be as good as the Mercedes one, but it will be very good.”- says the Italian team’s test driver.
Despite the improvement he sees, Marc Gené is realistic about the dominant situation of the Brackley team and knows that the goal this year is third place in the constructors’ world championship, as Ferrari then hope to be able to compete with the German team in 2022.
“The ambitious but realistic goal is to finish third in the Constructors’ World Cup and to be often on the podium. To get closer, in short, to Mercedes. It would be a surprise if they did not win the World Championship because it has been a year in which there have been no drastic changes. We have a young team and what we want is to make a leap in quality. And if that happens, in 2022 we think about being able to fight for the title.” – Marc Gene concluded.
