Strategy chief Neil Martin was not Ferrari's only target at the 2010 championship winning Red Bull team.

That is the claim of Helmut Marko, the right-hand man of Red Bull team owner Dietrich Mateschitz.

He is referring to Ferrari's recent announcement that Briton Martin, 38, has switched from Red Bull for 2011.

"Ferrari have made massive efforts to get our people," Marko told Bild newspaper.

"But everyone has stayed in the boat," he said. "This is important, because we have an unique spirit in the team and I get the feeling Ferrari wants to have it," he added.
