The Ferrari team is doing everything possible to cross the mark of 1000 horsepower in the season 2018 and not to lag behind in the field of power of the engine from Mercedes.

Italian journalist Leo Turrini announced that the team from Maranello is doing everything possible to keep up with Mercedes in this area.
“Many efforts have been made to reduce the weight of the engine because one of the advantages of Mercedes in 2017 was just the lower weight of the unit, wrote Turrini blog Quotidiano. – However Ferrari have made uspehav this direction.
On the test stand under load the motor gave out 1000 horsepower, although Mercedes already has overcome this mark”.
