Scuderia Ferrari to take 'aggressive approach' in Australia

Scuderia Ferrari to take 'aggressive approach' in Australia

Scuderia Ferrari director Frederic Vasseur believes his team can fight for the lead at the Albert Park track this weekend at the Australian Grand Prix. Ferrari did well.

Given the characteristics of the Australian track, Scuderia Ferrari expects the SF-24 to be competitive, so the Maranello team approaches the third round of the year with the firm intention of putting Red Bull under pressure, having won the first two races.

“The Albert Park circuit is one of the drivers' favourites, and Ferrari has always had great support here. » Frederic Vasseur announced ahead of the Australian GP.

“We expect to be at the forefront of this path where we can create a hierarchy similar to the one seen at Jetta. »

“We want to adopt an aggressive approach to put pressure on the team that won the first two races [Red Bull Racing, ndlr]. »

In the first two rounds of the year, Ferrari scored two podiums: Carlos Sainz's third in Bahrain and Charles Leclerc's third in Jetta.

Last year in Australia, Charles Leclerc retired after a collision on the first lap of the race, while his team-mate Carlos Sainz was ranked twelfth after receiving a five-second penalty for the collision.

Ahead of the 2024 Australian Grand Prix, Scuderia Ferrari is second in the Constructors' World Championship with 49 points, 38 less than Red Bull Racing.
