Ferrari team principal Marco Mattiacci has insisted on good aerodynamic progression by his Formula 1 team in the recent races. The progression is believed to have rendered a fantastic start for the squad in the 2nd half of this season.
Mattiacci is the new team principal for the esteemed Formula 1 team since April 2014, replacing Domenicali. However, the new change of power hasn’t sparked any sort of drastic turnover in regards to fortunes in Maranello. The team is still to emulate its very podium finish since his initial weekend as the principal at Sino Grand Prix. According to sources, Fernando Alonso has openly complained about Ferrari’s aerodynamics after his Silverstone stint and has even noted that it’s the aerodynamic issues which hindered him from overtaking World Champ Vettel in the race for 5th. However, Ferrari’s new team principal is continuosly stressing on adequate aerodynamic progression.
“I need to say that we have come up with a great deal of aerodynamic progress in the previous races that led that led to a serious positive result on track- hence we consider it as a great starting point in comparison to the events in the past”, remarked Mattiacci while stressing on the aerodynamic enhancement in the current Ferrari cars.
“I feel it takes little time. There’re issues that actually have been pretty persistent on our car for sometime and we are striving our best to improve whatever possible soon. Fernando is pretty well aware of it.”
Post the Brit Grand Prix, Ferrari’s new Team Principal assured that he had been looking forward to build up a different squad for 2015 yet he doesn’t feel that there’s necessarily some quick-fix on some lingering problems Ferrari has experienced this season.
“On the operational side, I don’t feel we can come up with immediate improvements for the car”, he added in.
