MARANELLO, Italy - Ferrari has floored the throttle in its push to emerge from its 2014 Formula 1 slump.

Eric Boullier, also pushing to end fellow grandee McLaren's struggle, predicted a long recovery for the fabled Maranello outfit.

Boullier said: "It will take them a lot of time to get back on top. Why? I'll keep that to myself."

'RE-DESIGNING ORGANISATION'

Ferrari is certainly making sweeping and significant changes. La Gazzetta dello Sport has reported that, in the previous few days, ten new engineers started work at Ferrari's HQ in Maranello, among them three engine experts from dominant Mercedes.

The report also claimed Ferrari had successfully wooed three aerodynamicists from reigning quadruple Formula 1 champion Red Bull, as well as a simulation expert.

Team boss Marco Mattiacci said: "I've ordered a strong discontinuity on the technical side."

The head of Ferrari's current engine chief, Luca Marmorini, is expected to roll.

Mattiacci insisted: "I do not name names but we are re-designing our organisation."
