F.1 - Gian Carlo Minardi "Ferrari needs a pilot technical"

Among the items to market the beginning of this world it comes with more power to Fernando Alonso in a red, especially in the case of withdrawal of Renault and its purchase on the part of Flavio Briatore. Through its website Minardi.it, Gian Carlo Minardi, is back on Alonso-Ferrari.

"The acquisition of Renault by Flavio is certainly not an impossible thing as it had previously bought by the Benetton team, and then sell it to Renault. This year we had the case of Ross Brawn. Certainly must make a reduction in staff, both technical and pilots. With regard to Fernando, I support a long who's Ferrari needs a driver like Alonso to rise again, although I must admit to Raikkonen a good weekend in Monaco. A driver from Formula 1, however, should be more constant in the results. Also this time the Ferrari has to rely on a pilot that trust blindly in what is the development of single-seater. Outdoor Felipe and Kimi does not give me those assurances that I would I as a manufacturer.

I have always stressed that Massa is an excellent pilot and companion team, which is running beyond its capabilities, but perhaps the team will be a pilot with the particularities of a Schumacher or Alonso who manage to influence the choices: c ' you need a technical pilot. For example the same Davide Rigon, for what I can learn by following them for several years with my son John, is a very technical driver who needs to work with the car, then managed to improve it. At a time like the present one where you get very little information coming from the pilot becoming crucial and fundamental. Probably one of the current difficulties of the Maranello team is to be found in those 13000-14000 Km pathways that have been pre-season, where most probably not have arrived a few indications that would allow to discover the weaknesses of the project F60 (Kers at all)."
