Ferrari hit out at Bull threats


Ferrari team boss Maurizio Arrivabene feels it is wrong for Red Bull to continuously threaten to leave F1 just because they are not winning.

Following a four-year run in which they won both the Drivers' and Constructors' Championship, Red Bull are now going through a bad patch.

The team won three races last season but failed to launch a title challenge while this year even a single race wins seems to be a leap too far.

This has resulted in Red Bull threatening on several occasions to leave the sport, the most recent coming from team owner Dietrich Mateschitz, who said he is losing his "will and motivation" to stay in F1.

However, Ferrari's team boss reckons that is the wrong attitude to have as F1, like any sport, goes through cycles; some years you win, others you lose.

He told the BBC: "It is easy to be happy when you win four championships and easy to complain when you are not winning.

"You have to accept when something goes wrong and when it goes right.

"F1 is like this. You could have a couple of years when you are winning and a couple when you are losing and this is the beauty because if everything is predictable it is not a race, it is something different."
