For the 2nd year in a row Stefano Domenicali and his engineering team are clueless how to beat Red Bull. You have to wonder how long before Ferrari gives him the axe
Ferrari Team Principal Stefano Domenicali is looking for the Maranello-based outfit to take 'a step in the right direction' in Turkey in two weeks time, although he knows there is unlikely to be a sudden change in the pecking order at Istanbul Park because all the other team will make a step forward as well. In fact, if Ferrari's step isn't big enough they may actually move down the pecking order. The team has clearly lost its way since Michael Schumacher and his engineering team left Ferrari.
“This championship has not started the way we would have wanted or hoped for. Our car definitely needs to improve its performance, especially in qualifying. We must work very hard over the coming weeks, especially on the aerodynamics,” he stated.
“We know our problems can’t be solved by waving a magic wand, all in one go [though], especially as our rivals are not going to sit around twiddling their thumbs: all the same, we need to take a step in the right direction, right from the next race.”
The need to make progress was underlined earlier this week, when Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo came out and 'demanded' that the level of performance be upped.
The Scuderia is currently third in the Constructors’ Championship, 55 points behind the leaders, Red Bull Racing.
