Head of Mercedes Motorsport Toto Wolff said that he understands why the team Ferrari are trying to isolate themselves from communicating with the media lately.
On the first pre-season tests in Barcelona in late February, the drivers of the Scuderia during the first two days did not give any interviews. Team principal Maurizio Arrivabene was also unavailable and, unlike all his colleagues, even refused to participate in the poll about who will be the champion in 2017.
On Saturday after qualifying for the Australian Grand Prix in a Ferrari the last moment canceled a press conference Kimi Raikkonen
“You have to understand that Ferrari is in a difficult situation, – quotes Wolff Motorsport-Total. – In Italy I am expecting a lot from this team, so they decided to completely focus on work. So I don’t see any problems.”
At the same time, the Austrian added that he understands the frustration of many journalists.
“The media is part of our sport, he continued. – Without them there would be no resonance around what we do. We must work in the interests of each other”.
