‘Signs of improvement’ observed at Ferrari, affirms CEO

Benedetto Vigna, the CEO of Ferrari, has noted the presence of “signs of improvement” in the esteemed Formula 1 team’s recent performances.

While the Maranello-based outfit faced scrutiny from fans, pundits, and the Italian media due to struggles during the 2023 season, a notable highlight emerged with Charles Leclerc’s podium finish in Belgium. The talented driver is rumoured to have secured a new Ferrari contract for 2025.

“In some recent races, such as last weekend at Spa-Francorchamps, we saw some signs of improvement,” Vigna remarked during a call with financial analysts, as reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Vigna emphasized the team’s unwavering commitment to continuous improvement, expressing their dedication to enhancing the car’s competitive edge.

“Clearly, we want to continue improving, and we are working day and night to make our car more competitive,” he stated.

Despite challenges faced in past years, Vigna reaffirmed Ferrari’s determination to remain a dominant presence in Formula 1, recognizing the sport’s role as a source of heritage and inspiration for innovation.

“Racing is our heritage and, more than ever, a stimulus to further innovate,” Vigna declared. “It is the will to progress that we must always keep alive—it is the legacy of our founder that we must constantly cultivate with trust and humility.”

While the team commenced the world championship with this spirit, Vigna candidly admitted that their level of competitiveness had fallen short of initial expectations.

“We started the world championship with this spirit, but with a level of competitiveness that was lower than our expectations,” he confessed.
