Meanwhile, former driver-turned-pundit Marc Surer feels that current Ferrari president Sergio Marchionne's confrontational approach is doing more harm than good.
"He might make a good football coach, but it doesn't work in formula one to keep kicking the players," he told Speed Week.
"Formula One is a highly analytical sport, which Marchionne does not understand," said Surer. "Again and again he keeps saying 'We have to do this, we have to do that', but F1 doesn't work like that."
