Elkann: Ferrari have to start over with humility

It's safe to say that nobody at Ferrari was pleased with the team's performance during the 2020 Formula 1 season. As a result John Elkann is calling for a change in attitude in order to get the Scuderia back on track.

Ferrari president John Elkann believes the team must show humility and dedication if they are to turn around their disappointing fortunes in Formula 1.

The Scuderia had an awful 2020 campaign, finishing well behind the likes of Mercedes, Red Bull and McLaren in the constructors' standings. With no wins to show for their efforts, Elkann knows the team isn't guaranteed success despite their storied history, which is why a new attitude is needed to turn things around.

"A great past doesn't necessarily mean a great present or a great future," Elkann stated over a conference call as reported by Gazzetta dello Sport. "Ferrari must start over with humility.

"We aren't happy with our current results in Formula 1 and we will work with humility and dedication to change that."

Elkann was front and centre for Ferrari's return to the track at Fiorano last week, with the Scuderia boss no doubt keeping a close eye on how things are shaping up for what will be an important season for the Italian outfit.
