PREVIEW - PUBLISHED ON JUNE 23RD 2011
In the magazine: Ferrari under fire

Ferrari is not the winning machine it once was, and this week AUTOSPORT grand prix editor Mark Hughes analyses why.

The Jean Todt/Ross Brawn/Rory Byrne/Michael Schumacher dream team has long disbanded and Formula 1's most successful constructor is still feeling it. What can be done to return the Scuderia to the glory days? New head of race engineering Pat Fry, a man who spent 18 years at deadly rival McLaren, could just be the man to help turn things around. Remember: you read it here first.
