Domenicali, who was Ferrari's team principal between 2008 and 2014, has recently suggested that it is not up to F1 to try and stop Red Bull's dominance, and has placed pressure on the likes of Mercedes, Ferrari, McLaren and Aston Martin to close the widening gap.
"I’m sure that is the aim of all the teams to try to show the level of their engineering, the levels of their capacity and capability to improve," the Italian said when asked by Sky Sports after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix whether the championship will be close next season.
"We need to expect that. Let me say something that I believe is important at the end of the season.
"The world of Formula 1, the growth of our sport is really magic. Our focus is to make sure that people that are avid fans like us can really believe in this sport, but also people that are maybe not avid fans but they love what we are building up, can be connected to us and then it’s our duty to develop the culture of Formula 1 and this is really the beautiful challenge that we have.
“I think everyone is looking forward to seeing great races up to the end. Today for example, last race of the season we had an incredible fight to achieve points for the classification and this is what we want and everyone wants to see that.
"But on that, I really hope for the teams to be under pressure to make sure that they understand that they have a big duty in that.”
