Speaking to La Sexta Gene said, “I think next year everything will change. The technical team at Maranello have been ordered in which direction to take to be leaders again and this means a more aggressive and creative design of the car. The aim is to be competitive from the beginning.”
Ferrari have not won a title since Kimi Raikkonen did the business in 2007, Gene explained the pressure team are under to deliver, “The problem is that Ferrari are always expect to win.”
Gene acknowledged, “What is clear is that Sebastian [Vettel] has had a perfect year with a great car. I have heard statements made in Singapore by [Lewis] Hamilton, Fernando [Alonso], almost all the drivers admitted that he drove at a high level.”
“However, to me, I still think number one is Fernando, the most complete of all,” added the Spaniard.
