That is the claim of Cesare Fiorio, who twenty years ago was Ferrari's team boss before the ultra-successful Jean Todt era.

He referred to the pressure currently on Stefano Domenicali, and the plaudits being raked up by his Red Bull counterpart Christian Horner.

Fiorio told La Nazione newspaper: "If Domenicali had Adrian Newey, it would be him who is considered the phenomenal team manager."

The 72-year-old also advises Ferrari to consider a replacement in 2013 for Brazilian driver Felipe Massa.

"I would have taken Jenson Button already, but time passes and Ferrari apparently needs to have a young driver who can learn from Alonso," he said.
