Ferrari CEO says team will not give up on F1 title despite early struggles
Ferrari’s quest for a grand prix victory this season has been met with disappointment, prompting CEO Benedetto Vigna to invoke a Japanese proverb, “Nana korobi, ya oki,” in an effort to inspire the team. The proverb translates to “fall down seven times, stand up eight,” and reflects the resilience and determination required to overcome challenges.
Ferrari has been grappling with an unpredictable SF-23 car, which displayed a loss of pace from qualifying to the grand prix in Spain. Their best result this season came from Charles Leclerc’s third-place finish at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix. In response, the Scuderia undertook significant changes to the car ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix, aiming to establish a new development path, make incremental progress, and achieve greater consistency.
