Ferrari F1 stays on ‘road to recovery’ – Marchionne

Ferrari is determined to improve for 2017, according to president Sergio Marchionne.

It has been a difficult season for the fabled Scuderia, with its failed title bid summed up by Sebastian Vettel’s foul-mouthed radio calls of Mexico.

But amid the criticism, former Ferrari boss Cesare Fiorio said: “Vettel’s reaction in Mexico was understandable.

“If I was (Maurizio) Arrivabene, I would just turn off Seb’s radio. Or at least ask him to keep certain appraisals of his opponents to himself,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

But Fiorio also said it is important for Ferrari to record a strong result before the winter begins.

“This is not impossible,” he insisted, “because in the US and Mexico Ferrari got less than they deserved.”

Meanwhile, team president Marchionne indicated Ferrari will now keep its eye on ensuring 2017 is a better year for Maranello.

“We are not happy with the results,” he said, “but we go forward on the road to recovery.

“We want to finish the season in the best possible way,” said Marchionne, “but it is crucial that the ambition is to return competitively next year.”
