Ferrari to Debut Advanced Diffuser at Singapore

Following Ferrari's great weekend at Monza, Fernando Alonso warned that his F10 car will be competitive in all the remaining rounds of 2010, no matter the characteristics of the 5 circuits left in the championship. The Spaniard made that assumption based on the latest developments secured by the Scuderia, who will debut a new diffuser step on the streets of Singapore this upcoming weekend.

We now have a package that should work on all types of circuits. 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 back then, in an interview with Germany's Auto Motor und Sport.

Needless to say, the 2-time world champion was referring to the races in Hungary and Spa, where Ferrari were not even close to the level of performance showed by Red Bull. Ferrari will try to avoid the situation in Belgium particularly, when their new parts did not work as projected prior to the race.

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,” team boss Stefano Domenicali was quoted as saying to Italy's Tuttosport.

He further admitted that the upcoming developments for the Ferrari F10 will have an aerodynamic nature, with most of the changes to be operated “at the bottom of the car.” As far as the Singapore step is concerned, the F10 will feature an evolved version of the rear diffuser, which will be better integrated in order to improve gas flow towards the rear of the bodywork.

The change will be aimed at creating some extra downforce for Ferrari, as it's a well-known fact that Red Bull Racing have been close to unbeatable on high-downforce circuits throughout the 2010 season.
