If they were let go doesn't mean they are not experts. Aldo Costa for example was Domenicali's scapegoat. In Ferrari he had important roles in 6 WDC and 6 WCC titles. Same for Mark Ellis with RBR's 4 WDC and 4 WCC titles. Hardly a bad track record.mantikos wrote: ↑Mon Apr 15, 2019 4:54 pmmmred wrote: ↑Mon Apr 15, 2019 3:27 pmif you talk of budget mercedes should lap ferrari all the races, they basically have 3 superfamous technical leaders in every sector where ferrari has now just binotto and unknown guysmunudeges wrote: ↑Mon Apr 15, 2019 3:25 pm
Yer. Nothing. They also faded very badly from a technical point-of-view last season.
That's not the benchmark. The benchmark is Mercedes, and they have people like James Allison and Geoff Willis directing their car's direction. You need the right leadership, and technically Ferrari just haven't been getting it right. With the budget Ferrari have they should be where Mercedes is at least all the time.
"basically have 3 superfamous technical leaders in every sector" - Who? former TDs that were let go from previous gigs? Wasn't there a joke at one point that Ross was assembling a team of rejected and fired TDs? They're famous because they're at Merc now, not because they were super famous before, they were all let go at some point. The TEAM matters more than a celebrity name.
Admittedly Ferrari can only blame themselves for not being able to get better people at some positions.
