Ferrari set for major overhaul

Ferrari set for major overhaul

Ferrari are set for a revamp over the next few months as the team look to revive its floundering fortunes.

The Italian outfit haven't had a proper assault on both the Drivers' and Constructors' Championships in recent years and this campaign is no different as Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen have been unable to keep up with the Mercedes drivers.

Ferrari have already made changes to their personnel this year with Marco Mattiacci replacing Stefano Domenicali as team principal in April and recent reports claimed they have also hired 10 new engineers.

Although he is refusing to reveal much detail about the restructuring at the team, Mattiacci admits it will be a "different" squad in 2015.

"We don't have to make any announcements. The best announcements are results, those are the best announcements that a team can make," he said at Silverstone.

He added: "Starting from here, we need to prepare a different team for 2015. Do we need to do announcements? No, I don't think we need to do announcements.

"Do we need to improve? Continuous improvement? Yes. That is our position."

Media reports have also claimed Luca Marmorini, head of the engine and electronics department, has left the company, but Mattiacci is keeping tight-lipped.

"Nobody on our side has announced what you just said. As I said, I don't want to point to any individual - in particular during the race weekend," he said.

"We are redesigning the team, we are enforcing the team. That's what I can say. I don't make comments about individuals."
