Overcoming Red Bull for title spoils next year will be a difficult prospect  for Ferrari, FIA president Jean Todt has warned.

Before the Stefano Domenicali era, Frenchman Todt oversaw Ferrari’s ultra-successful Michael Schumacher period, delivering a Red Bull-like period of domination with five consecutive Championships until 2004.

Kimi Raikkonen won the title in 2007, and Ferrari has come close to winning in subsequent years, but president Luca di Montezemolo this week admitted he is “sick of coming second”.

“I hope that Ferrari [does] a good job,” Todt is quoted by La Repubblica, when asked about 2014. “They have already done this in the past few years.

“Obviously being second is not the same thing as being first, but it is also really difficult to [attain] second [place],” he added. (GMM)
