Le Castellet, France - Sebastian Vettel must overcome his anger over a five-second penalty which denied him victory at the Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday - on a French track where he was punished in the same way last year.
If that wasn't enough, the team principal of his Ferrari team freely admits that upgrades planned on the Paul Ricard circuit "won't be the solution to our problems."
Vettel is a massive 62 points behind leader and title holder Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes after his controversial penalty in Montreal when he came back from the grass in front of Hamilton while under pressure in a manoeuvre deemed dangerous by the race stewards.
Ferrari has now asked the ruling body FIA to review the decision that cost Vettel a first season victory after he crossed the line first in Canada.
But it remains unclear what new evidence they could present, and when the case would be dealt with.
