At the end of 2023, Ferrari took third place in the Constructors’ Championship, losing three points to Mercedes. Scuderia head Frederic Vasseur said the team realized even before the start of pre-season testing in Bahrain that the car would not allow them to challenge for the title.
Frederic Vasseur: “Expectations were too high at the start of the season, but we soon realized what really happened. This required several rounds of testing in Bahrain. No, we realized that when we were working on the simulator before Bahrain.
But I liked how the team handled difficulties last season. We had to go through difficult moments in Jeddah, Miami, Spain, Zanfdort. The stage in Zandvoort was relatively recent and they almost overtook us on a lap. But since then the team has made a huge step forward and this is a good sign for the future.”
