MELBOURNE: Ferrari is planning big improvements for its car in time for the first European race of the Formula One season at its home Imola circuit. "There is quite a good development programme being put together and Imola will be the first stage," technical director Ross Brawn told reporters at the Australian Grand Prix today.

Ferrari has rebounded from a miserable 2005 season with a more competitive 248F1 car. Seven-times champion Michael Schumacher is equal second in the standings, seven points adrift of Renault's World champion Fernando Alonso after two races. Reuters
