Talk is what happens when solutions aren't available. The engine is bad, the aero is bad, and no one at Ferrari knows how to fix it. So, Mattiacci talks about "motivation" and other empty platitudes because that's all he can do. Ferrari built yet another pig and no amount of "motivation" is going to turn that pig into a thoroughbred.

The recently disclosed faux pax of expecting an intentionally compact-sized 2014 power unit to achieve competitive F1 parity when paired with unattainable aerodynamic improvements shows the hole that Ferrari allowed earlier officials to dig for the team. But I think that there have been enough clear signals of course-correction with hard analyses, zeal and excellent recruiting for optimism about 2015. F1 needs a healthy, innovative and competitive team Ferrari and I, for one, am always glad to see them on the grid. Meanwhile, Fernando and (one hopes) Kimi will do all that anyone can to make things exciting with those inferior cars over the next 7 races.
