The New Ferrari F2008Scuderia Ferrari is aiming to win again both titles, just like in 2007. In an interview with Formula One’s official website, Stefano Domenicali, the team’s Team Principal, repeated once again the goal for 2008: “There are at least three teams that are very competitive and Ferrari is one of them.” In the season opener Grand Prix in Melbourne, things haven’t gone so well for the Italian team with Kimi Raikkonen’s 8th place and Felipe Massa’s early stop.

“Melbourne saw us experience serious reliability problems, but not because we arrived unprepared. It was rather the case that this year, everyone with the exception of one team had to deal with a new parameter, the MES central control unit, which still has to reveal all its secrets, especially in terms of the way its operation affects the overall functionality of the car”, said Domenicali.

Domenicali also talked about Felipe Massa’s zero points. “We cannot be satisfied with having only picked up 11 points from the 36 on offer. However, this is the responsibility of the team as a whole, its manager, engineers, mechanics and, of course, the drivers: all of us have to improve our performance to reach the standard to which we aspire,” he said.

When asked about his new Team Principal role within the team the Italian said:”There is no old or new regime, a phrase which smacks of revolution, a situation which is far from what is happening in Maranello. President di Montezemolo and Todt have entrusted me with a task as part of a gradual process of renewal, which has been going on for some time now and is based on the principal of dynamic stability and internal growth.”
