Ferrari not giving up on car concept as it targets first win of 2019 after summer break

Ferrari's Jekyll and Hyde season continued at the Hungarian Grand Prix as the team's drivers finished over a minute off race winner Lewis Hamilton just one week after they had the pace to fight for victory Germany.

The dramatic swing in competitiveness from one weekend to the next would be surprising for any other team, but for Ferrari it is simply the reality of its 2019 season.

The problem is broadly understood and is rooted in the aerodynamic concept of this year's SF90 car. On circuits where a high-downforce setup is required, Ferrari has consistently struggled this year whereas circuits that feature high-speed corners and long straights have been its forte.
