Bernie Ecclestone says he does not envy the job Ferrari team principal Maurizio Arrivabene faces in turning the Italian team around.After winning three races last year, Ferrari came into this season hoping to challenge Mercedes for the championship. However, after 19 races the team is still waiting on its first victory of 2016 and sits a distant third behind Red Bull in the constructors championship.All I hope is that Ferrari get their act together and start winning races, Ecclestone told Formula Ones official website.Probably what Maurizio desperately needs is a good back-up support like Mercedes have got, for example, he added. If he had the support that Mercedes has, they would win races -- for sure. I am also sure that you will see a different Ferrari next year.Ecclestone compares Ferraris current set up to the one that Jean Todt took over 1993, which took seven years to turn into a title winning team.When I got Jean Todt to take his position and go to Maranello -- which was a bit of a risk for Jean to do -- it was an all-Italian team and they were a bit concerned about taking a foreigner. But I told them: when you win the championship you sure will find ancestry in Jeans family that comes from Sicily.Now it has gone back to being a very Italian team again. And it is run like an Italian team. So I dont envy Maurizios job. I wouldnt want to do it. John Kruk Jersey
