MODENA, Italy – With yet another season started where they get their ass whooped by Mercedes, Ferrari is desperate to improve their lack luster 2019 performance.  Newly named team principal Mattia Binotto wants to make a big impression in his first season and has elected to bring the updated engine for their SF90 four race weekends early to see if it will bring a much needed boost to the team.

While getting pressure from the Ferrari Board of Directors, Binotto went against his engine design team’s pleads against debuting the engine this early as not even a single test has been conducted.  During a heated team meeting, Binotto found his inner Bill O’Reilly and ended the meeting by yelling, “F@#% IT, WE’LL DO IT LIVE!” referring to the first engine tests being run during a live race weekend.
