Ferrari Chairman Sergio Marchione said that the team changes were made once during the race weekend at Sepang Ferrari was faced with the unreliability of the power plant.
Due to faults Sebastian Vettel failed to participate in qualifying, and Kimi Raikkonen was not able to start the race.
During check-in, Vettel managed to break through from 20th to fourth place.
“We should have been a double victory in Sepang. It is a fact – quoted AUTOSPORT.com Marchione. – Furthermore, the same result was supposed to be in Singapore.
But the fact is that we have had problems with the power plant, because the Ferrari is now a very young team.
We intervene in the process and work on their weaknesses. We must admit that the quality of some components does not match the level of a racing car.
We are lucky that this problem didn’t arise until the race weekend in Malaysia. We have now made certain organizational changes to improve the quality of the art.
If a similar problem appeared in the factory, we would be very upset, but when our pilot is in second position on the starting grid and won’t start, it’s just a mess”.
Recall that in the overall standings, Vettel is now losing Lewis Hamilton to 34 points.
