Sep.21 (GMM) Ferrari will unveil yet another development of its blown diffuser layout on the streets of Singapore this weekend.

After encountering difficulties with the F10’s latest developments at Spa recently, the Italian team finally got the layout working optimally at Monza, where Fernando Alonso won from pole position.

“We now have a package that should work on all types of circuits,” the Spaniard is quoted by Auto Motor und Sport.

“We know Red Bull will be very strong at the next two circuits, but we should now be more consistent than we were before.

“Consistency is the key to this title,” said Alonso.

The next step, to be seen for the first time in Singapore this weekend, is a further integration of the diffuser and the gearbox and how the exhaust gases are directed through the rear bodywork.

“This race will be important but not decisive,” team boss Stefano Domenicali told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“The championship looks to be open right until the end, and the new scoring system helps us,” he added.

As for the new developments for Singapore, Domenicali is quoted by Tuttosport: “We need to avoid a repeat of what happened in Belgium, where our developments failed to give us what we expected because we weren’t able to test them.

“It’s impossible to predict what will happen because there are so many variables at play,” added the Italian.

He confirmed that the F10’s next developments are “aerodynamic” in nature, situated “at the bottom of the car”.
