Alesi: Ferrari culture should not change under Vasseur

Former Formula 1 driver Jean Alesi believes the team culture at Ferrari should not change under the new leadership.

The Maranello-based Scuderia saw a change of leadership, as Mattia Binotto was changed for Frederic Vasseur, who was Alfa Romeo’s team principal before the switch.

Speaking about the change, Alesi admitted Ferrari needs to change their tactics if they want to be leaders in the sport.

“Let’s be honest, on the tactical front, Ferrari were unwatchable last year,” he told Autosport.

“Things definitely need to change, otherwise t here is no way out for the team. I think Vasseur has to rely very much on Laurent Mekies.

“Mekies has been at Ferrari for years and he can be the ideal person for Vasseur to see where things need to be changed and what, on the contrary, should stay the same because there is potential.”

However, when speaking about the team culture, Alesi stated it should remain unchanged.

“If you tell me that Ferrari is going to speak or should speak more and more French, I will say no immediately,” he said.

“Maranello is Italian. One has to speak Italian and only Italian.

“I once drove for the Scuderia and there I experienced the best moments of my career.”
