Domenicali: I nearly resigned after Abu Dhabi
Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali said an interview with La Repubblica, “After Abu Dhabi I raised the issue [of resignation] to myself. I wondered if it was right or not, if I stayed. But I came to the conclusion that resigning would be a mistake. I know the team and I think I am the right person to capitalize on all that we have sown in recent months. From an organizational point of view, in Maranello, we have changed almost everything and I am sure we will soon see the results of the hard work.”

Asked if he had any nightmares after the Abu Dhabi, Domenicali replied, “No nightmares. I fell asleep only on Tuesday, two days later.”

The Ferrari F1 team boss pointed out, “In a position like mine at Ferrari, you have to be ready for anything. Especially if after two years you fail to bring home some results. From this point of view, I always felt a great support from the president of the company and shareholders. And I’ve always worked with the desire to reciprocate this trust."

“The bad things [in 2010] were mainly two: the car, not as fast as Red Bull and the mistake of Abu Dhabi.”

“The mistake was huge and has produced devastating effects. But in a normal race it would be a normal error. Now, you must not jettison everything, even good things, because of that mistake.
