Ferrari team leader Binotto said that they will continue to develop the 2020 car instead of switching to the 2019 car. Di Resta, the team's chief designer, said that they will redesign the rear of the car.
Usually F1 teams will release a brand new car every season. However, due to the financial crisis caused by the new crown epidemic, the FIA has adopted a "quota system" for the research and development of this season with the consent of all teams. This season there are only two teams per team. Quotas are used for major upgrades.
The "quota system" was determined before the start of the season, when Ferrari did not know how bad the SF1000 was.
Regarding the question whether the team should focus on the development of the SF1000 or return to the 2019 car, Ferrari’s designer Simeone Resta said, “It’s the team. And us. This is the designer’s job. It’s also my work with my colleagues. Work in progress. We are determining where to start the ongoing project (SF1000)," he said.
Di Resta revealed that the focus of the team’s research and development is on the rear of the car. "Our direction is to redesign the rear of the car. The reason for the redesign is that we believe that through the development of this area, the performance has been improved."
迪·雷斯塔（Di Resta）透露，车队的研发重点在汽车的后部。 “我们的方向是重新设计汽车的后部。重新设计的原因是，我们相信通过该领域的发展，性能得到了改善。”
There are rumors that Simeone Resta and the team leader Binotto have had a disagreement, and the latter is actually still the head of the team's technical department.
"The most important thing is to concentrate," Binotto said in an interview with German Sky Sports. "We must forget the rumors outside and focus on our work-ongoing research and development."
Another question raised by Sky Sports is whether Ferrari can simply abandon the 2020 car and use the more competitive 2019 car again. Binotto denied this.
"Even if the car is upgraded, the two cars are still quite different. You can't simply move the kit from one car to the other car, it won't work."
