Ferrari is looking to deploy the Red Bull-like approach of installing a ‘satellite’ team in Formula One.
Alarmed by its poor start to the new turbo V6 era, it has been all change at Maranello in 2014, including the ousting of boss Stefano Domenicali and engine chief Luca Marmorini.
New chief Marco Mattiacci is now plotting a further change of gear for the iconic marque.
“We have decided to invest in new infrastructures and people to create a more modern and slimmed down organisation, but one that at the same time puts the emphasis on the team and on individuality,” he said recently.
One of the new strategies, according to Italy’s La Gazzetta dello Sport, is following the lead of Red Bull by having a Toro Rosso-like ‘B-team’.
