Ferrari has come up second best in the last few tussles with Red Bull and is reported to bring in upgrades for the Spanish GP. It looks like a two horse race for the championship with Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc driving in a league of their own. It all started off with Ferrari getting quickly off the blocks in Bahrain and getting one over Max Verstappen in the early exchanges.

Red Bull has had to deal with their reliability issues which have costed them a handful of points in the first two races of the season. We saw both the Red Bulls of Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez not able to finish the race in Bahrain due to fuel pump issue. When we thought that was the end of their troubles, Max Verstappen retired out of the Australian GP due to an engine issue. This left him with a mountain to climb in his quest to defend his maiden title.

But, Red Bull has made a comeback in the scheme of things with two consecutive wins at Imola and Miami, courtesy of their upgrades. Ferrari and Charles Leclerc have not had any answers to the threat posed by the Milton Keynes outfit. The F1-75 is definitely been faster in the corners but a mile behind when it comes to speed on the straights, leaving it way too behind to try and overtake on the corners.

But, it has been reported that Ferrari will bring in some major updates ahead of the Spanish GP. Formula 1 technology expert Albert Fabrega said, “There is a pack coming to Barcelona, a big upgrade, apparently. You [don’t] know the upgrades that are big or small till you put them on the track. So we will see.”

“We are expecting Ferrari to step forward. Because as we see on the last race, Red Bull is a little bit ahead of them in all senses.

“So they need a bigger step, I would say, if they want to keep that momentum to Red Bull to try to stay on top and keep that that leading position that they are on Constructors’ [Championship], and also in Drivers’ with Charles Leclerc,” as reported by planetf1.

The Italian giants, Ferrari, will have to respond to the upgrades of Red Bull or else they might fall way behind in their fight with them. Let’s see how the F1-75 fares out at the Spanish GP against the RB-18
