“The truth is that the schedules are tight. It’s a bit earlier this year for the Bahrain test and that’s a challenge for all of us to be ready in time.

“Our Christmas present to them (including the tifosi) will be to do well in March, not Christmas. At Christmas presents are based on promises and I don’t want to give any.
“We’ll see in March if they get an Easter present.”
