Ferrari's season unravelled partly due to reliability issues, but it appears the Scuderia have been learning from their mistakes. 

Autosport believe Ferrari engine boss Corrado Iotti has been overseeing the development of a new cylinder head which will be rolled out later in the season without an alloy steel piston concept which was going to be introduced by ex-Ferrari chief Lorenzo Sassi.
