Ferrari alters team after loss at Abu Dhabi
Ferrari has declared the former McLaren designer, Pat Fry to be the leader of the team's engineering unit, a position held by Chris Dyer earlier.
Before starting into the 2011 Formula One season, the team made up its mind to make some extremely important alterations in its structure.
Even though the Italian squad declared many times in 2010 that it was satisfied by the present combination of its employees, the distressing Abu Dhabi Grand Prix compelled the management to take some strict steps before the start of the new season.
The Ferrari driver, Fernando Alonso went in to the final race of the season, leading the points tally, with his win looking very possible.
But due to a poor race tactics in which the driver took an early pit stop, he lost the third championship of his career. Earlier this week also there have been a few reports that following the loss of the title, the Ferrari team principal, Stefano Domenicali thought of retiring from his post. But, as explained the Italian on Tuesday, had he been a football coach, he would have announced his retirement. However, Formula One is a complex sport and the same norms do not apply here.
