Following a long factory lockdown amid Italy’s coronavirus epidemic, Scuderia Ferrari’s fabled headquarters at Maranello have now re-opened and work will gradually resume.
“On Monday we opened the F1 division,” test driver Marc Gene confirmed in an interview for Radio Marca. “Everything has been prepared for, with many corona tests.”
The Spaniard said Scuderia Ferrari will now work hard to improve its 2020 car prior to the expected re-start in Austria at the beginning of July:
“It has been two and a half months with no touching of the car. No engineers could look at the telemetry – nothing. But the car we had in Australia, which was already good, will of course be different. We have some areas to improve and hopefully we will do that for Austria. It looks like we will start there and still do 19 races.”- Long-serving Ferrari tester and ambassador Marc Gene concluded, as reported by the Spanish media earlier today.
