Frederic Vasseur is "convinced" of Ferrari's potential despite struggles faced by the squad in recent years.

It was announced in December that Vasseur would become the Scuderia's Team Principal and General Manager as of January following Mattia Binotto's resignation from his position.

Vasseur becomes the fifth person to take on the role in the past decade, but the Frenchman is not deterred by this and has voiced his belief in what the squad can achieve going forwards.

Vasseur: Ferrari have everything to win

"I'm really convinced [in] Ferrari today," Vasseur told media, including RacingNews365.com.

"For sure, my experience is limited to the last two weeks, but we have everything to win.

"We have to put everything together to do a good job, but we have everything to be able to win.

"It's just a matter of continuous improvement for me, that we are doing a better job than the others [and that] in a couple of months or years that we will be able to win."

Nothing set in stone, says Vasseur

With the pecking order having changed in Formula 1 on numerous occasions, Vasseur believes that "everything is possible" for Ferrari in the future.

"Nothing is [set in] stone," the former Alfa Romeo boss said.

"If you have a look at some teams that were in a very dominant situation a couple of years ago, they are nowhere today.

"You don't have to take this kind of [approach of saying], 'Okay, it was like this [in the] last decade or the last 20 years and it will stay like this [for] the next 40 years.'

"F1 is a changing world. We just have to be focussed on the job, on the performance, and everything is possible."
