Three races in the first part of the 2020 season ended and the Mercedes team triumphed with a brace by Lewis Hamilton and his 90th pole position, putting himself ahead of all the "greats" of motorsport.
In addition to the efficiency of the German team, the Ferrari disappointing performance emerged which, after returning on the track, showed that the SF1000 does not seem to be up to being among the top positions in the standings.
It is strange how a powerful team like Ferrari is now in midfield. In fact, the Italian team is currently 5th in the championship after finishing the last race in sixth and eleventh place.
Among the recent statements by Ferrari team principal, Mattia Binotto, the desire to restructure part of his technical team emerged which, apparently, will be predisposed to the development of the performance of the vehicle.
The goal of the new department is to be "more effective and assure a more holistic emphasis on performance development".
The team will be led and supervised by Enrico Cardile, an aerodynamics and project management manager for Ferrari vehicles.
Furthermore, Binotto is keen to reiterate that the other departments if the team will remain unchanged: "The other main areas are unchanged with Enrico Gualtieri in charge of the Power Unit, Laurent Mekies as Sporting Director and in charge of trackside activities, while Simone Resta will continue to lead the Chassis Engineering department,
"As hinted at a few days ago, we are making changes to the technical side of the organisation so as to speed up the design and development on the car performance front,
"A change of direction was needed to define clear lines of responsibility and working processes, while reaffirming the company's faith in its technical talent pool.
"The department run by Enrico Cardile will be able to count on the experience of Rory Byrne and established engineers such as David Sanchez. It will be the cornerstone of the car's development.
"We believe Ferrari personnel are of the highest level and we have nothing to envy about our main competitors in this respect, but we had to make a decisive change, raising the bar in terms of the responsibilities of the department heads." reassures Binotto.
The restructuring of the technical team is part of a much larger project at Ferrari and apparently the team is entering into a long-term agreement in Maranello.
"We have said it several times, but it's worth repeating: we have started to lay the foundations of a process which should lead to a new and enduring winning cycle,"this is what Mattia Binotto said about it.
"It will take some time and we will suffer setbacks like the one we are experiencing right now in terms of results and performance.
"However, we must react to these shortcomings with strength and determination to get back to being at the very top of this sport as soon as possible.
"This is what we all want and what our fans all over the world expect of us."
From the confident statements of Mattia Binotto we would expect a "turning point" for the Maranello team.
