During his time as Chairman, Ferrari had won the world title in Formula 1 six times and multiple Constructors Championships as well. During the last Italian Grand Prix, team Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen finished ninth and his team mate Fernando Alonso retired with a fault in the car.

Presently, Ferrari stands at the fourth place in the Constructors Championship. Since 2008, Ferrari has been having trouble competing with other teams like Red Bull Racing and Mercedes.
