New Delhi: Even after having quadruple champion in Sebastian Vettel, the most popular and successful team in the history of Formula One, Ferrari, is not expecting much from the forthcoming season.
According to media reports, Ferrari have set a minimum target of two race wins as they are terming the 2015 season as 'year of reconstruction'.
2014 was one of the worst seasons for the Italian giants, who haven't won a single race in 2014, even after having two World Champions behind the wheels in the form of Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen.
For the last few seasons, Ferrari drivers have been struggling with their cars, especially engine, which is not powerful enough to compete for the top spot in Drivers' championship, or for that matter Constructors'.
After the conclusion of 2014 season, Ferrari have done significant changes. Two of the biggest changes were, the arrival of team principal Maurizio Arrivabene, who took over from Marco Mattiacci, and the exit of Fernando Alonso, who has been replaced by the four-time champion Vettel. However, the German too had a forgettable 2014, where he couldn't manage to win a single race.
This season Raikkonen and Vettel will compete for one of the oldest team in the sport. Last season, they finished fourth in the Constructors'. With team going through the transition phase, Ferrari fans have to wait for at least one more season to see their team fighting for the Championships.
