Ferrari’s management revolution will have no impact on the driver lineup, new president Sergio Marchionne insists.
With Stefano Domenicali, Luca Marmorini and now long-time president Luca di Montezemolo all falling victim to the fabled team’s poor performance in 2014, it has been suggested the turmoil at Ferrari might also affect the drivers.
After a run of four podiums in five races, Valtteri Bottas had a less enjoyable Italian grand prix.
The Finn had to settle for fourth, while his teammate Felipe Massa scored his first podium of 2014. The solid team result meant Williams passed Ferrari on the fabled marque’s home soil for third place in the constructors’ world championship.
Changes are afoot at Caterham, mere days after the team’s takeover by mysterious investors.
“We’re not even a week into this new chapter in the team’s life,” said new boss Christijan Albers, “but we’ve already seen just how hard everyone at the track and at the factory is prepared to work to push us forwards.”
Champions Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel are suffering from similar problems in 2014.
That is the claim of Raikkonen’s manager Steve Robertson, amid speculation that due to his struggles, the Finnish driver could be losing the support of Ferrari and beginning to cast eyes at a new project — world rallycross.
