Ferrari team principal Maurizio Arrivabene insists his team will not switch focus to 2016 and remains committed to winning three races this season.
The team remains Mercedes’ closest rival, but they’ve been unable to mount a challenge for victory following Sebastian Vettel’s win in Malaysia earlier this year.
However Arrivabene is convinced that more success will follow in 2015 and he’s not willing to give up on his pre-season target of three wins.
“I don’t want to start like my predecessors in the past to talk about now we are concentrating on next year’s car,” he said.
“We have a certain team that are working for next year’s car, but the team is working for this year’s car.
“We are not going around the world to do racing and go on vacation. We need to do always our best and we need to sooner or later to catch Mercedes, not in 2020, but this year.
“We want to win three races, and I am still here: we want to win three races.”
Vettel currently sits just 49 points adrift of championship leader Lewis Hamilton and just 39 points off second-placed Nico Rosberg.
