Ferrari Formula 1 boss Fred Vasseur is a man from whom much is expected. His engagement meant a lot to all Ferrari fans, considering Vasseur's experience and quality. However, Fred is not satisfied with the current situation within the team, and wants to change many things in the future.
It seems that things may be about to change soon. "We are miles away because when you are doing my job you don't have to imagine that there is a perfect structure,” he said, as quoted by motorsport.com “You always need to improve, and always need to change things.
If you stay with the same structure two years in a row then you are dead, because all the others will improve. It means that I don't have a clear picture to say I have to do this, and full stop, and it will work. It would be stupid.
We will make some changes in the coming weeks, in the coming months, in the coming years, because some topics are a bit longer than some others. But it's a permanent evolution and permanent improvement”. The most important thing is that Vasseur and the rest of the team know very well where they make the most mistakes and what things they need to fix.
The Ferrari boss did not want to talk about the details, but certainly that he could do great things. "Yeah, we are starting to have a much better idea of the situation, and where we are weak, and where we are in better shape,” he said.
“But this I will keep it for me. Sorry! But for sure, race after race we are starting to have a much better picture of the situation”.
Fred Vasseur reacts to Charles Leclerc result
Charles Leclerc finished third at Spa.
This caused optimism among Ferrari fans. However, Vasseur calls for caution and believes that such a result does not have to mean anything. "I would stay very calm, because we had the same [press] meeting one week ago, and we were at the end of the world, McLaren was flying, and we were stupid and so on," he said.
"From one week to the other McLaren is at the back today [Sunday], and we are at the front. It means that we have to stay calm, to take it easy, race after race. We know that the pack is so tight, so that for one or two things you can move from P2 to P11.
And it's not the end of the season, we have a lot of to do. But for sure, it's good to finish the first part of the season on the positive tone. At least we will have the two weeks off with a positive race in mind."
