In an appearance at the FIA’s sport conference in Munich, the Italian also shared his thoughts on Mercedes’ dominance in 2014 so far, and inferred that it could continue for some time.
“It was clear that the teams that were strong at the beginning would keep that advantage for the season because with such a step change in technology,” Domenicali is quoted as saying by James Allen on F1. “Mercedes have done a great job and they will keep this advantage for a long time.
“To close the gap in a situation where the regulation is more or less frozen is very difficult.”
After resigning as team principal back in April, few concrete details about his next move have emerged. It will remain that way, as Domenicali is not focusing on a comeback anytime soon, but is instead enjoying his time away from the sport.
“So far, I’m taking a breath. After 23 years of non-stop work it seems I have a bit of time now, so I’m taking the opportunity to be with the family, which has to be good. Really good!”
