Good bye Mr. Marchionne.
He was still young (66). It all feels so sudden. Washington Post is saying Cardiac Arrest the cause of death
The former Phillip Morris man also indicated that Ferrari will continue to be backed by Marlboro for the foreseeable future, “There is a contract until 2020. This is a relationship that has lasted for 45 years and has brought us mutual benefits. I believe it will continue this way.”. Camilleri’s appointment also strengthens the hand of his former Marlboro colleague Maurizio Arrivabene, the pair worked together at PMI for two decades.
What changes, if any, one can expect at Ferrari since there is long working relationship between those two men?
I take crack at it:
1. Kimi will stay for another year. Arrivabene is found of him.
2. Camilleri will be inclined to receive Arri's counsel regarding proposed changes in regulations.
vintly, did no-one look at the data and compare it with the immediate preceding races? Even the radio and tv commentators remarked on it.
Bill Boddy And if it really does turn out that instead of adding the upgrades, actually doing nothing would have won them the championship, then it'll go down as one of the worst cock-ups in the history of F1. (NB my knowledge of historic F1 cock-ups is not extensive.)
I doubt it's quite that simple, but if Ferrari continue to perform as well as they did in Austin, for the remainder of the season, then maybe it is that simple.
Well, they did revert to the old aero package for the Austin GP.
BBC Sounds - 5 live Formula 1 - US GP: 'Again it's a mistake from Sebastian Vettel' - Nicholls
Again its a mistake from Vettel , again he is spinning and again he is at the back
The bit on Ferrari by Channel 4 before qualifying apparently Marchionne wanted Ferrari to be led by Italians like the old ways which is naive and arrogant thinking given their best years was when Todt led, Byrne designed, Brawn ran from the pitwall and Schumacher was driving which apparently annoyed various people at Maranello
It is obvious Marchionne had a presence about him when he spoke the team listened or certainly were kept on their toes a bit more , Arrivabene does not seem to be able to manage the team properly or his buddies in the hot seat
There is a lot of things wrong with Ferrari
Arrivabene - prior to Marchionne it seemed like he tried to keep away from the spotlight because he feared Marchionne probably but he has not stepped up since then either. He likes Kimi
Camilleri - a businessman who knows nothing about running an F1 team
Then there is Agnelli 's grandson who again knows nothing about running an F1 team and more chosen because he is part of the family
Raikkonen - past his best despite that fairy tale win but as it was alluded in the race usually he can be indecisive and seems to wait for the pitwall to make decisions. He is not the man you want to manage through a crisis and rally the troops. However he has been badly managed by Ferrari - just how much more could he have done better or really they should have dropped him long ago
See Vettel next post
Vettel mistakes 'no longer a coincidence', says Brawn
Ignoring red flags was stupid for someone of his experience
His pass on Ricciardo - he still managed to slide and hit the Red Bull even though this time he had more room to play with. As Martin Brundle said it is almost as if Seb has lost the art of overtaking
The Italian press are really savaging him and cutting him up
Glock has 'rarely' seen Vettel so hurt
Seb is feeling the drain of fighting the politics at Ferrari and interestingly
'Vettel spending more time with Red Bull'
Now I wonder how much will he tolerate and is he going the same away as both Prost and Alonso did in speaking out against the politics and fines himself out of a drive
If Red Bull can rehire Kyvat why should they not rehire Vettel.? although that would seem to require Verstappen to move unless Vettel accepts a lesser status which I don;t he will to go back to Red Bull
His situations reminds me of Alonso appearing more often with Flavio and chatting with his old Renault team than with Ron Dennis at Mclaren
