Maurizio Arrivabene says it is "not a question of revolution" at Ferrari as the team looks to recover from missing out on both Formula 1 titles in 2017 amid uncertainty about his future at the helm of the Scuderia.

Ferrari entered the 2017 season with its best chance of winning a title since 2008 after impressing in pre-season testing and making a strong start to the year, leading both the drivers' and constructors' standings after the Monaco Grand Prix.

However, a revival from Mercedes and collapse in form from Ferrari over the Asian flyaway races saw its title hopes diminish, with Lewis Hamilton poised to beat Sebastian Vettel to the drivers' title this weekend in Mexico.

Despite the team's struggles of late, Arrivabene feels there is plenty for Ferrari to be proud of this year as the team at Maranello put its failure to fight for the title in recent years.

"We have a lot of positives, in all honesty, because I saw quite a young team working very, very well on the car here and in Maranello," Arrivabene said.

"The guys are very united, they are exchanging information, they are very focused. They are quite young so no one was expecting the performance that we have this year.

"It’s a question sometimes of adjustment. It’s not a question of revolution, it’s a question of adjustment because this year we pay a heavy fee for detail and I said we need to be a bit more focused on the processes.

"But the good positive is that this is a team that is not giving up and it’s learning from mistakes and it’s a team that is fully committed, not only for next year but even for the next three races.

"As I’ve said many many times, we like to fight until the last lap, the last race, the last lap and the last turn."
