Maurizio Arrivabene believes Ferrari will have "a good package" of updates at the Spanish Grand Prix.

The start of the European season traditionally sees teams bringing their first major upgrades to the cars, with minimal changes having been made during the opening four flyaway races.

While aware Mercedes is likely to be bringing new parts to its car too, Arrivabene is keen not to put pressure on Ferrari to make a big step forward in Barcelona but says the team has been working hard on a major update.

“I heard that a lot of teams are coming with new things," Arrivabene said. "We are now preparing as all the others some solutions for Barcelona. I don’t really like to talk about this because afterwards you create expectations and so on.

"We are doing all our development step by step but I think in Barcelona we are going to take finally a good package.”

Ferrari has enjoyed a strong start to the season, with Sebastian Vettel winning the Malaysian Grand Prix and Kimi Raikkonen finishing a close second to Lewis Hamilton at the last race in Bahrain.
