Ferrari’s new technical director James Allison is convinced they can dominate Formula 1 again in the near future.
Ferrari were the team of the moment in the early 2000s when winning five consecutive titles but they have struggled to match Red Bull over the last few seasons.
Ferrari have struggled to build a car as fast as Red Bull’s, which has resulted in Fernando Alonso finishing second to Sebastian Vettel in three of the last four years.
However, Allison believes the determination is there to turn the tide and says everyone will be working hard to ensure Ferrari become top dogs once again.
“I have found a team hungry and determined to get back to the top of the podium at every race and championship,” said Allison.
“It is a team that is optimistic for the future and is looking forward to dominating the sport again.”
One of the key areas that needed refurbishment was their wind tunnel, and now that has been completed, Allison is confident it will improve their ability to develop their car.
This has been a major flaw of Ferrari over the last few years but, after some serious investment, Allison believes the aerodynamics of the car will improve greatly.
“I don’t think we have made any secret of the fact the area we have been underperforming in, relative to the completion, is we haven’t made as much out of the aerodynamic rules over the last few seasons as some of our rivals,” he added.
“That’s for a number of reasons and it’s an area where our team has invested heavily over the last 18 months or so and we will eventually get our reward for.”
