And Minardi has now warned Vasseur that despite a positive trend being seen at the end of the season, nothing short of success will be good enough at Ferrari.
“Everyone expected a certain level, especially after a promising start, a level that the red only reached in the finale,” he told Gazzetta Dello Sport.
“On a technical level, it has had a fluctuating trend, with some worrying moments in the summer. But it is true that finishing on the rise is a positive sign for 2024.
"Having taken office in January 2023...he [Vasseur] found everything done. The big thing comes now. Everyone tells me – and he himself said – that major investments have been made in terms of men and manpower, so we will see what and how many grafts will come in.
"It was time to perceive, understand and learn what others are doing. That's the job of the team principal. Of course at Ferrari when you are second you are the first of the losers, so it's not easy."
