Ferrari has appointed a Spanish woman to help “fix” car reliability problems that have marred the team’s push for the 2017 title. In the Sepang-Suzuka double header, Sebastian Vettel suffered car problems that now strand him a whopping 59 points behind Lewis Hamilton with four races go go.
“We need to renew our commitment to the quality of the components we use for F1,” Ferrari president Sergio Marchionne said afterwards. “On at least three occasions it has had a devastating impact on the Scuderia’s performance. We will fix it,” he promised.
La Repubblica newspaper is now reporting what that “fix” is.
