When asked what he thinks about when he talks about these "priorities", Wolff replies:
“It is not fair to talk about priorities at Ferrari. Because it is unfair to train all Ferrari and all the people at Ferrari in this. Maybe these are the decisions that have been made within the company. 'team, by some of their members. "
