Chief designer Simone Resta said that he is pleased with the team's showings on Sundays, but said that the team might focus their set-ups more towards qualifying in future.
"This year I think we have shown a reasonable race pace, and we closed the gap in qualifying [compared to 2012], but we still need to work on that - and it is a priority for us," Resta told Autosport.
"I think learning the tyres and also how to treat them is an important factor in that – and concentrating your set-up more to qualifying or more to the race is another factor.
"I think for us, it is a priority to try to recover performance in qualifying."
Ferrari are 32 points behind championship leaders Red Bull.
