Ferrari technical chief Pat Fry says his biggest aim is to make the team more "creative"in its design thinking to help lift its form against rivals.
Having replaced Aldo Costa following a staffing reshuffle last month, Fry has been evaluating the way Ferrari works in its push to close the gap on Red Bull Racing. Fry said on Saturday that there will be changes to the way Ferrari's wind tunnel program was utilized starting next week, but he believes that there was the necessary brain power already at the squad to help it achieve its aims.
"We are looking at trying to change the way we work," said Fry. "There are a lot of very clever people at Ferrari. We are just trying to give them space to try and come up with ideas and be more creative, I don't think there will be any [staff] changes."
When asked about what changes he had made since taking on his role, Fry said: "The main focus in the last three or four weeks is that we made some changes in April, and we continued with those.
"We are trying to look at the way we run the wind tunnel, and we are trying to change that and that will be happening in the next week or so. Plus, the way we use simulation tools to work out exactly what is better. We are trying to build a foundation to make those decisions."
Although Ferrari has hopes that the blown diffuser regulation tweaks for Silverstone may transform its chances of winning the title, Fry says it is hard to predict exactly what will happen at the British GP.
"I think it is going to be very hard to say what is going to happen until we get there," he said. "The engine mapping changes here are relatively small compared to the changes for Silverstone, but it really just comes down to how much people have been using it. Everyone has been exploiting the blown diffusers, but to what level I really don't know, it will be interesting."
He added: "I hope we will catch them up, but whether it is a landmark race or not I don't know."
