Ferrari engineering director Pat Fry says the squad must improve in 'all areas' if they are to progress up the Formula 1 grid in 2015.

Ferrari has endured a troublesome campaign and has claimed just two podiums all season, courtesy of Fernando Alonso.

With the team languishing a distant fourth in the Constructors' Championship, Fry says the team requires improvement ahead of next season.

"After the back-to-back races in Japan and Sochi, we’ve had three weeks to prepare for these next back-to-backs in the United States and Brazil," he said.

"The extra week has given us more time to get ready and also to prepare some specific test items. They are all aimed at learning about car performance and trying to improve, but at this stage of the year, it’s more with an eye to 2015.

"Certainly, our knowledge and understanding has come on a huge amount. It’s also clear, comparing us to our competitors, exactly where we need to improve.

"We need to work on all areas of the car and we’ve set ourselves some strong targets for power unit and aerodynamic development, both of which are key. We have to reach those targets to be competitive and that is the main focus at the factory now, as it will be for the next five months."
