New engine that is said to regain 15hp. By my estimates they lost maybe 45 peak hp for the spec they had in testing, and I don't think it has anything to do with sanctions but a new development. One step back to go two steps forward sort of thing. Go hard bwfore the engines are froze.
Franco Nugnes had written the article about +15h.p. by 01 march 2020.

Ferrari did not redo the engine with a new project from scratch, but it evolved the unit criticized last year: the 065 will show up in Melbourne with fifteen more horses thanks to a more pushed hybrid strategy that should lead to savings in gasoline and with a view to the future in a reduction of emissions.
If we can trust him then Ferrari had developed their engine not only by 01march, but much earlier (time that need to develope the engine and time we give to let Nugnes know about this inside info and write the article) and therefore it couldnot be the development during 1 week after these testings in winter.
Then, -45h.p. is it the new weaker engine created for 2020 and used during tests or is it the 2019 one? Or -45 because turned off/sandbagging for longer testings without reliability problems?
I see Nugnes repeats words about +15h.p. in every article about SF1000. He wrote +15h.p. for engine 065/1 in Australia, now we see +15h.p. in articles dated 19-21 may about 065/2
