The team Ferrari again received the “Golden Tapir”

For the second consecutive year, Scuderia is awarded with anti-prize for the failed season.

Despite the confident start and the two first races won, the Ferrari gradually drifted farther and farther away from the victory. Vettel and the team of strategists continued to make mistakes, and the SF71H car lost speed. As a result, the first place went into the hands of Hamilton and Mercedes.

The anti-award “Golden Tapir” was invented by the leader of the Italian TV channel Canale 5 in 1996 and presents it for failures and embarrassment in show business, sports and politics.

This time, a large joke was attached to the statuette, which frankly did not boast to fellow colleagues. The size of the figurine did not allow to hold it in hands, therefore the plastic “Golden Tapir” was brought on a truck under the doors of the office of the head, Maurizio Arrivabene.

But the chef did not lose his head and commented on the received “statuette”: “If you want to say that there was a motor from Fiat Punto under the hood of our car, this is not so. We had a good engine. We acted either correctly or not to get this “Tapir”! At the beginning of the year, we showed ourselves well, but in the end we sang the winning song at Mercedes. ”
