That is the claim of outspoken former F1 team owner and boss Eddie Jordan, who is now an expert pundit for British television.
Ferrari has not won a drivers’ title since 2007 with Kimi Raikkonen, and the fabled team brought the Finn back to Maranello this year to pair with Fernando Alonso, arguably the very best driver in F1.
“Ferrari has top drivers,” Jordan told Germany’s Auto Bild, “but again it has been unable to provide them with a car that can win the world championship.”
Ferrari’s latest travails triggered the departure of team boss Stefano Domenicali, and it is rumoured Spaniard Alonso may now finally be losing patience, five consecutive seasons into his career in red.
“I think this is one of the greatest crises in the history of Ferrari,” said Jordan. (GMM)
