Ferrari is preparing to unleash more power in Spain.

Reports are doing the rounds that the Maranello team will debut an upgrade for its turbo V6 'power unit' in June for the race in Canada.

Germany's Bild newspaper said a new specification will in fact make its bow in Barcelona in just under three weeks' time.

EQUALING MERC

The report said it could boost Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen's 2015 car to the tune of "20-30hp", giving the SF15-T "almost as much power as Mercedes".

Team boss Maurizio Arrivabene told Italy's La Gazzetta dello Sport: "I want to thank all the people in Maranello who have been part of this work.

"It has been not only about developing the engine, but every single part of the car, realising in three months what normally would have taken six.

"I do not know if we will catch Mercedes, but I definitely like the idea of being able to put pressure on them."
