Ferrari team boss Marco Mattiacci says he is very close to making his first serious change since taking on the role as Team Principle, having spent the past month and a half assessing the operation of the Ferrari team.
“In the last six weeks we did a very thorough assessment of the opportunities to improve in the short-term and the areas that require a medium- to long-term approach to bring Ferrari back to the very highest competitive level,” said Mattiacci.
“I’m not going to disclose publically which areas we need to improve, but it’s clear that we need to take some action towards improving the working methodology, organisation and making the Scuderia faster, not only on the track, but also in terms of decisions and processes.”
“We have a lot of assets and good people, but if in the market there are people that can bring a strong added value to the team, we will definitely go for it,” he said.
“There is no entity that can stay the same, we need to improve organisational changes and bring people from the outside. Everybody is doing this. It’s not only Ferrari.”
Since Mattiacci took over from former Team Principle Stefano Domenicali, Ferrari has stepped on to the podium once.
