After the disappointing qualification of Monza, the Maranello team are not surprised. Ferrari's sporting director is already looking for solutions for the future.
In Monza, Ferrari is at home. With the incredible support of the tifosi, the crawling horse has always achieved good results at home like the victory of Charles Leclerc last year. This year, the coronavirus prevented spectators from massing in Monza. Especially preventing the tifosi from attending a sad spectacle. After a difficult start to the season, this session promised to be difficult for Ferrari. And on the track, the reality was as terrible as announced. Charles Leclerc will start tomorrow from 13th place and Sebastian vettel from 17th position. This is the first time since 1962 that a Ferrari will start the Monza GP from as far away – from the penultimate row.
"It's time to turn the pages"
After this difficult qualifying session, Laurent Mekies, sports director of Ferrari, reacted to the microphone of Sky Sports. “It's difficult, we knew, it's not a surprise. We do not wonder if this qualification was positive or not. We know that the situation is very complicated, we saw it at Spa and we saw it here. Our goal is to find solutions to build a future that will take us out of there. No one is happy with where we are, we should not focus on qualifying today, but on how to get out. Our difficulties are evident on so many different tracks. For us, it's time to turn the pages, focus on the future and understand how to make a more competitive car ”.
