Piero Ferrari, the second and only living son of Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari, would like to see the Formula 1 team that bears his famous surname win at least three races in the 2017 F1 championship.
Scuderia Ferrari will be hoping for a much better season, after the results in 2016 did not live up to the expectations of the fans and the management, as the Maranello team did not manage to win a single race last year and had to eventually settle for third place in the overall constructors championship, being out-developed by Red Bull in the second part of the season. So for the 2017 Formula 1 championship, team shareholder and founder Enzo Ferrari’s only living son told the blog of F1 journalist Leo Turrini: “I would like to see at least three wins, without placing limits on providence.”
As Leo Turrini reports on his blog, Piero Ferrari does not approve of the major regulations changes which will be introduced in 2017, considering that the new rules related to the aerodynamics aspect will not help improve the races and could lead to even even less overtaking on the track. He also highlights that Liberty Media, the future owners of Formula One, should pay more attention to what the younger generations expect from this competition and also get more involved in interactive social media activities and initiatives. Piero Ferrari agrees that Formula 1 should come up with cost cutting ideas in order to help the smaller teams, but most importantly should focus on what the general public would like to see on track and experience during a grand prix weekend.
