Marco Mattiacci says Ferrari doesn't need to make public any changes that happen at the team as it looks to rebuild for 2015.
Ferrari has been unable to match Mercedes under the new regulations in 2014, with Red Bull also pulling clear in second place in the constructors' championship. Mattiacci took over as team principal from Stefano Domenicali following the Bahrain Grand Prix this season and confirmed he is instigating changes but says he will not be making the details of them public.
“We don't have to make any announcements,” Mattiacci said. “The best announcements are results; that is the best announcements that a team can make. We definitely are working to improve because [on Sunday] we were sixth. On the other side of the coin we are not happy to be sixth.
“The weekend was bittersweet; a lot of emotion, a lot of positive things, but we are not happy with sixth. So from here we need to prepare a different team for 2015. So do we need to do an announcement? No. Do we need to do continuous improvement? Yes. That is our position, so we don't have to make any announcement at the moment.”
When questions on the future of Luca Marmorini – with the head of engine and electronics rumoured to be on the way out at the team – Mattiaccci declined to comment.
“Nobody on our side announced what you just said. I don't want to point to any individual … we are redesigning the team and reinforcing the team. So that's all I can say. I don't make comments about individuals.”
