Rome, Feb. 14 (BNA): Ferrari’s new boss, Fred Vasseur, said today, Tuesday, that he will make marginal changes to the Formula 1 racing team, but anything more significant could wait until the opening rounds of the season.
The Frenchman only started working at Maranello last month after being appointed as an understudy to manager Mattia Binotto, reports Reuters.
“It’s a short notice before the first race, but I’m using the days to get to know everyone in the company and delve into the details,” Vasseur said at the launch of the team’s new SF-23 car at the Fiorano circuit.
He added, “It’s hard to have a major change in organisation, but we’ll do some marginal changes…in the race team operation.”
“Then let’s see what we do after Bahrain and the first two races.”
The opening match of the season will be held at the Sakhir Circuit on March 5th. Ferrari finished runners-up to Red Bull and now two-time world champion Max Verstappen in both championships of 2022, and they let the challenge down due to strategy errors, poor reliability as well as drivers’ mistakes Charles. Leclerc and Carlos Sainz.
The season will feature a record 23 races and sporting director Laurent Mikis said there will be more staff rotation between the factory and the racetrack to “create a better environment”.
