Sebastian Vettel says there is more to Ferrari’s problems than simply an underperforming engine.

Team boss Mattia Binotto said last week that the Maranello-made power unit is up to 50 horsepower down on the Mercedes engine in 2020.

He said work on a completely new 2021 engine is looking “very promising”.

Quadruple world champion Vettel, who is switching to Aston Martin next year after being dumped by Ferrari, is quoted by Globo: “In terms of engine power, yes we lost some performance compared to last year. Regarding the car, we took a small step forward this year.  Last season, our car was very efficient – we had a lot of downforce without a lot of drag.

“This year we have more downforce but also more drag – and that is a big problem.”
