Fir­ing staff isn’t the an­swer

F1 Racing - - INBOX -

Although F1 was great to watch in 2014, I was dis­ap­pointed by the per­for­mance of Fer­rari. Fer­nando Alonso is the best at mak­ing the most of a bad car, yet even he man­aged only sixth place in the driv­ers’ cham­pi­onship, while Fer­rari have taken just three podi­ums in the last 25 races.

The team have re­sponded to this with the sack­ing of key team mem­bers on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. In my opin­ion, they have red tal­ented peo­ple. Just look at Wil­liams in 2013: they strug­gled with their car and it would have been easy for dis­missals to be made, but in 2014, with sim­i­lar de­sign­ers, they have been trans­formed. Per­haps Fer­rari should have sacked Kimi Räikkö­nen – he barely picked up one third of Alonso’s points tally.

I re­ally do hope that with the ar­rival of Se­bas­tian Vet­tel and the rst Fer­rari fully de­signed by James Al­li­son, Fer­rari will be able to ght higher up the grid next year, maybe even pick­ing up a race win or two.

Thank you for a great year of the mag­a­zine. Iman Han­sra
