Ferrari are set to introduce some 'interesting developments' in the coming races according to technical director Pat Fry.

The Briton admitted that recent upgrades brought to Germany and Hungary failed to have the desired effect on the F2012's pace despite Fernando Alonso taking victory at Hockenheim.

However, he is now confident that the team are heading in the right direction with its development programme.

"It's true we had a handful of parts that did not work the way we had expected: there’s always a chance that can happen in work like this," he said.

"The positive aspect is that we understood the problem and everything is alright now: that way, we can use this experience to move forward rather than being left confused about it. In fact, we have a clear idea on the direction we need to take and we have already begun to work in this direction."

Fry confirmed that the Italian outfit has upgrades for the next few races in the pipeline, with the nature of both Belgium and Italy demanding unique packages.

"We have a few interesting developments that we will introduce at Spa, a track which, from an aerodynamic downforce point of view, is quite special, as indeed is Monza. In fact, we will also have an aerodynamic and engine package specifically suited to the Italian track.

"Therefore a lot of work has been done, but there is still also a lot to do: we must continue to keep up the pressure to a high level."
