Ferrari says it is trying to understand why its F1-75 has struggled for performance relative to its nearest rivals in recent grands prix.
Ferrari has fallen adrift of Red Bull in races following Charles Leclerc’s victory in France and has also had to battle an improving Mercedes team.
Ferrari is now only 30 points ahead of Mercedes in the battle for second in the Constructors’ Championship.
Charles Leclerc fell away from Max Verstappen through the course of the Dutch Grand Prix, going on to classify third.
“We just didn’t have the pace,” said Leclerc. “We weren’t quick enough. So this is the main focus at the moment, to try and bring back the speed that we had at the beginning of the season.
“We seem to have lost it, a little bit of pace in the in the long runs especially.
“I think everybody is obviously improving but in the last races, we’ve been struggling more a bit more in race pace.
“Now Mercedes is also in the fight and they are very quick. They were extremely quick today, especially on the harder compounds.
“I think our pace on the Soft was really good at the beginning. We had used tyres, Max was on new, so I think the difference was more or less what we expected. But then, on the new Medium, we were slower than expected, for sure.”
Ferrari boss Mattia Binotto added that “it is three races where we have not performed on a Sunday and we should, and no doubt I think not only Red Bull but Mercedes is faster than us.”
