Ferrari president Luca Di Montezemelo has confirmed that he has implemented changes at the Italian team's factory in order to improve efficiency at Maranello to help improve the teams on track performances.
Ferrari have struggled since the start of the 2014 season and it was only last time out in China when the team managed to pick up their first podium when Fernando Alonso finished the race in third behind the Mercedes duo of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. The team have also had their first big name departure of the season as team boss Stefano Domenicali resigned from the team in the build up to the Chinese Grand Prix.
Domenicali was replaced by Ferrari North America's CEO Marco Mattiacci and his first race resulted in the team's first podium. However this result can be put down to Domenicali's influence at the team.
During a briefing with Ferrari staff at Maranello which included Mattiacci, Di Montezemelo confirmed that the streamlining process has begin at the team which will result in the team's partners and suppliers reacting quicker to requests for new parts or equipment.
