New team manager Maurizio Arrivabene says his goal in 2015 is to return Ferrari to the top of the podium, even if he admits a title challenge is unlikely.

Taking over from Marco Mattiacci, Arrivabene has overseen the development of the new SF15-T and the arrival of new signing Sebastian Vettel, who has come on board to replace the McLaren-bound Fernando Alonso.

Ferrari endured a disappointing season in 2014 after struggling to get a grasp on the new regulations, failing to win a single race and finishing a distant fourth in the constructors' standings.

Ahead of 2015, Arrivabene admits his targets for the new season remain 'realistic', though he firmly believes Ferrari can return to winning ways.

"We have to be realistic, nobody has the magic to change things when things are unchangeable," he said. "The car was ready in December and we applied some modifications which we think are interesting. I don't want to say we are going to win the world championship but we feel we can win at least two races."

Having caused a stir with comments in a recent interview, Arrivabene also took the time to emphasise his calls for F1 to adopt a 'revolution' if it is to retain its fan base.

"I want everybody to understand we need a revolution not an evolution. We want to make F1 a better show, more spectacular and bigger noise which is closer and better for the fans."
