The devil will be in the detail – Arrivabene

Maurizio Arrivabene says 'details' will be pivotal in its pursuit to get on terms with Mercedes in 2016.
The devil will be in the detail – ArrivabeneMaurizio Arrivabene says Ferrari will be working on all areas of its car ahead of the 2016 Formula 1 World Championship season, saying the 'devil will be in the detail' if it wants to get the better of Mercedes next year.

Ferrari enjoyed a substantial step forward over the winter to emerge as Mercedes' closest rivals in terms of pure pace, with Sebastian Vettel returning the manufacturer to the winners' circle with successes in Malaysia, Hungary and Singapore.

With big gains coming from the engine package in particular, Arrivabene - who only took charge of the Ferrari team at the start of the year – says Ferrari is now focusing its attention on improving the aero and chassis as well, saying each 'detail' is being reviewed.

“We need to work hard on all of the components on the car, we need to take another step forward with the engine, we need to work on the chassis and also the aero. For us the engine is very important and this year we've had a big improvement.

“The chassis and aero guys were not sleeping so if you want to have the perfect situation, to know the single detail because the devil is in the detail, and to work for 360 degrees. But most importantly making sure all of the guys are working together and are helping each other.”

Reflecting on a successful first season as team principal, Arrivabene says 'passion' for the role remains the defining factor for him.

“You travel the world for many years, and people think that we are visiting nice places and having fun, but what I have to say if you want to do this job you need a lot of passion, and the passion is moving forward."
