“We have to start over with humility” – Ferrari chairman John Elkann has instilled the belief that the iconic F1 brand will rise from their struggling years, and achieve glory yet again.
Ferrari had a tumultuous last season in Formula 1, finishing P6, their worst performance in decades. They did not win a single world title last decade, seeing Red Bull and Mercedes take all the honors.

For those unaware, Ferrari is the most successful constructor in the history of Formula 1. John Elkann, the Ferrari chairman, though, stressed that the past should not be focused on too much. He wants his organization to rebuilt and build a solid foundation for the future. He was speaking during a conference call about the company’s financial accounts.
“A great past does not necessarily mean a great present and a great future. We have to start over with humility. We are not satisfied with our current results in Formula 1 and we will work with humility and dedication to change them.”
Mattia Binotto pays tribute to outgoing Ferrari CEO Louis Camilleri
Ferrari is yet to find a replacement for Louis Camilleri, with Elkann stressing they will take time to find a new CEO. Meanwhile, the F1 team boss Mattia Binotto has spoken highly of Camilleri, and his support throughout. Binotto himself is under pressure to perform and would be hoping for success real soon.
“I think he has been a fantastic CEO, boss, and friend. Very supportive, long-view in terms of having passions, investing et cetera. But I have to say, whatever we were doing was supported by our chairman, John Elkann, and by our vice-president, Pierro Ferrari, and I have to say I have the full trust and support of these guys as well of which I have known for many years. Today, I think there are no changes in our plans, no changes in what is our future.”
