Montezemolo not expecting 'miracles'

Montezemolo not expecting 'miracles'

Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo laments that his team's season has left them with "little to talk about and much to do."

Ferrari's first season in the new 1.6-litre V6 era has not gone according to plan.

The Scuderia's engine is down in power compared to its Mercedes counterpart while various updates for the F14T have not yielded the gains the team had hoped for.

As a result, Ferrari are a distant third in the Constructors' Championship on 87 points, 171 behind runaway Championship leaders Mercedes.

Added to that, in seven races Ferrari have managed just one podium finish courtesy of Fernando Alonso's third place in the Chinese GP.

The disappointing start to this season has now led to di Montezemolo saying the Ferrari are building for the future.

"I don't think we can work miracles in the short term," he told Italy's Tuttosport.

"We are working hard for the future knowing that what was done this year and what has not been done well.

"Now we are in a difficult moment and there is little to talk about and much to do."
