    Did they turn Allison into lemonade, or he was always a lemonade

    I do wonder why Ferrari seem to keep losing important design/technical people with inside info, maybe Marchionne is a bit too ruthless and intransigent for the good of the F1 team, which isn't just another Fiat-Chrysler division.

    I wonder why they need another engine guy? Did they lose someone? If not, maybe it's time for Ferrari to start some aggressive recruiting.

    Maybe its a GodFather tactic (aka Luca Brasi): make like your unhappy with the family, gain their trust and gather info?

    Nah, they are just Godfather wannabees. Ferrari is the real deal and will know how to pull it off.

    Yup, it seems like whoever Ferrari is firing, Mercedes is picking them up, just like Aldo Costa
    We fried him, Mercedes picked him up and now he built a better car
    ...the new SF71H looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    Sassi, Costa and Allison all making the move and going to Mercedes........says something about what's going on internally with Ferrari in the F1 dept. Man, I would give my right kidney to work in the Ferrari F1 dept back in the day but now would Ferrari be appreciative of it.... I would have to think twice about it.

    Thing is we don't know what really goes in the Ferrari team internally. We don't really know what was Sassi and Allison doing and their impact on the team. Everything is kept so secret that we can only speculate. However, i get what you are saying, superficially it looks bad with all this sacking and Merc snatching Ferrari's former top engineers.

    You're right, we can only speculate.
    If they fired Allison and Sassi they had to have good reasons to do so.
    Marchionne's new structure proved to be very efficient last year ending years of
    Impunity (tombazis,fry...)when the team failed.
    Costa was a big loss because ldm didn't realize Aldo wasn't a technical director but a highly skilled engineer.

    Yeah, some people like Ted Kravitz are calling him the king of suspension or something.

    It seems Arrivabenne is fighting with the hierachy of the organization and trying to make it somewhat flatter. Might as well start somewhere and sometime.

    Maurizio Arrivabene says Ferrari must learn to emulate Mercedes' winning mindset

    http://www.espn.co.uk/f1/story/_/id/...inning-mindset

    and


    Allison gives us some insight of Mercedes culture and Ferrari culture.

    Interview: How "unusually different" Mercedes has invigorated Allison

    We all know the flourishing Mercedes reasons. It is not because of their engineers but because of their engine. They had the glory to shine at Ferrari and it didn’t happened. Taking Ferrari engineers it is a sign of doubt that they have inside their plans. Now when we are so close and almost would have won they fear the next year. Ferrari is not stupid to fire key people. They have the best drivers and personnel. We just need some extra power and I believe we will have it next year.

    Well La-dee-FREAKIN-DA!!! IMO, they broke this a long time ago.....like they're going to divulge actual bhp . Ferrari needs to shoot for 1050bhp to 1075+bhp.

    It looks like Williams will have a proper budget next year. Let's just hope they'll have a proper racer in Sirotkin as well.
