John Elkann and Camilleri, one of the main people on the Ferrari team are aware that Ferrari is not where it should be. It will be very difficult for them to get out of everything and they will have to work hard to make changes in their team.
The change of rules that will come in a couple of years will have an even greater impact on them and other teams "We're in a hole now - and we know we're in a hole," said Camilleri, Ferrari's CEO, as quoted by skysports "It's a confluence of factors but anything I say will come across as excuses, and we're not into excuses."
"So what matters is to focus on the issues we have and to work hard with determination to get back to what we consider to be our rightful place."
Camilleri is optimistic about their future
Camilleri hopes that there will be changes and that Ferrari will return to where it belongs, which is among the best.
He also praised the Mercedes team, which he believes should be a model for how good results can be achieved if done properly. "Realistically it's going to be tough," replied Camilleri when asked if they could turn their fortunes around next season.
"[In] Formula 1 we are always fighting time - both on the track and in developments - and there's no magic bullet. So, we'll take time. "I'm hoping with a bit more flexibility in the regs next year we can at least step it up from where we are.
Mercedes, hats off to them, they've done an incredible job, and we'll see in 2022 with the new regs whether it creates a reset." Jenson Button believes there is tremendous pressure on Ferrari and that Camilleri knows how to deal with such pressure.
It is certainly not easy and these are difficult times for Ferrari, but many do not doubt that Ferrari will be where it belongs again. "It's such a difficult situation for Ferrari. There is pressure on all these teams in Formula 1.
A lot of pressure on Mercedes, but the whole of the country wants Ferrari to win in Italy. "There is so much pressure from the fans and also within Ferrari. So it's good for him [Camilleri] to give the team his blessing, if you like, and also for them to say it's not going to turn around overnight, it's going to take a little while. I think that gives them less pressure."
