Ferrari Sporting Director Laurent Mekis outlined the team’s goals for the 1000th Grand Prix in history …
Laurent Mekis: “Weekends in Spa and Monza were very difficult for us, but this week in Mugello we wanted to turn the tide – and so far we have succeeded.
Charles qualified fifth, on Saturday in a tight fight, where every tenth is important, we were ahead of a whole group of riders. Sebastian’s result is not so good, but at the end of the peloton the results are even denser – five thousandths would be enough to move up two positions.
We know that the race will be difficult, demanding on the drivers and the technique. Ten cars at once are potentially claiming places behind the top three. And in order to succeed in this struggle, everything must be perfect – pace, strategy, pit stops. Our goal is not changing – to earn as many points as possible. “
