(Allison) I am not surprised; he got off the hook while others were blamed, for project being late in development, yet there are articles on the internet I read in 2013/2014, that 2015 project was his, and his only. Now, he is under microscope.

http://www.jamesallenonf1.com/2015/07/can-ferrari-f1-bosses-remain-patient-as-gap-to-pace-setters-mercedes-persists/

He could be a relatively decent engineer, but whether he is a good manager, remains to be seen.

I should have added, going back to old notes, the guy is an aero specialist, and question then, as it is today, what qualifies him to lead also engine and chassis?

The article is an interesting read. Makes me wonder what drastic thing needs to happen to oust Allison :armchair:

I didn't expect anything else from someone like SM, but I also think this is begging of the end for Scuderia, simply devastating news.

Seb spun in FP2 in Hung., which is atypical of him. I do not want read more into it than necessary, but for sake of keeping notes updated, Kimi had issues in Austria, and Canada. One can only wonder if the engine upgrades for Canada are nothing more than mere a factor of coincidence or part of unresoved issues Ferrari is experiencing with its development.

Kimi's engine developed water leak in FP3. Fact is, I have lost track what is situation with Ferrari at the moment. Kimi damaged new wing in FP2, and he might now be running on an old engine, rumour has it, so, I am not sure who has what in terms of the development stage.

Arrivabene: This is the Ferrari I want

http://www.gptoday.com/full_story/view/536496/Arrivabene_This_is_the_Ferrari_I_want/

I am happy for them. Small question on the side - why we had these problems at Spa to begging with? Is it something new, error in assembly, error in design, error in testing results, or what was that all about? Considering how little can be done on Saturday and on pre-race Sunday, shouldn't we be in ship shape form by Thursday? This is not too much of a critique, but realization we are not in sun as yet, and a gap to Merc is somewhat scary.

A few Italian modern media reporting (speculating?) above actually already happened.

Speculating is easy.
Ferrari agreeing to speculation prior to Monza...impossible

Leo Turruni > James Allison extended with Ferrari until 2018 #F1

I am not sure if it was confirmed by Scuderia.

Sergio Marchionne in the paddock - home race alright, and reportedly breathing some new fresh air into talks with RB on subject of customer engines. I am OK with that with respect better them, than to have Mercedes PU on RB car, but on downside, RBR is not known to take credits for their own mistakes, and I am not sure Ferrari is too keen to see too much of baseless fingerpointing. Looks like a choice of lesser evil for SM and his men. Merc on RB, or flying finger aimed at Maranello. Neither is very appealing.

Talks among SM, MA, CH, and Dr. Marko have taken place. It is rumored that DM prefers Mercedes engine over Ferrari one.

Marchionne: "Nel 2016 una Ferrari ancora più forte"

http://www.gazzetta.it/Formula-1/05-09-2015/ferrari-marchionne-f1-1302031228.shtml

OK, Sergio, but when and where are you going to test you new concept to assure us all, it will not be a dog of a car? No mistakes allowed, remember, because if you screw up, that's it, December will come rather next weekend, instead 10 months later. A lot of uncertainty lies ahead.

Arrivabene hails Vettel’s ‘great impact’ on Ferrari

http://en.f1i.com/news/24407-arrivabene-hails-vettels-great-impact-on-ferrari.html
“He has a great impact because the whole team is getting together [around him],” said Arrivabene. “He works hard and brings a lot of enthusiasm to the team. Sometimes, he’s also helping me make sure we’re getting together.


Some inside on how some drivers become preferred son of the team [lead driver]. Right or wrong, but I think this was true about Schumacher just as much it was about Sebastian during his tenure with RBR. Nothing special for behavioral scientists, it just that this cannot be dictated, but people tend to gravitate towards success and limelight. I've tried to argue precisely that point last year (not too successfully), but now we heard it from a more qualified person.

I'm sure Arrivabene prefers the Mercedes engine as well :hit:
