Ferrari improve test facility
The team has already begun their improvement program with building work on a sprinkler system that will enable them to improve their wet-weather track simulations.
The new system will replace the current method of spraying water from trucks, and is the first of several changes to the Emilia-Romagna track, which is located close to Ferrari's Maranello factory.
The team is also concentrating on improving safety at the circuit by developing larger run-off areas, and they are also installing new pit garages and a mechanics' gym.
The new full-circuit water spray system will be fully installed by the start of April, after which the team will be able to test in full wet-weather conditions.
That will to ensure they are able to put in more impressive performances like their dominant one-two finish in Sunday's Malaysian Grand Prix.
