Nov.26 - Ferrari "must" prioritise preparations for the 2022 season, the Maranello team's former highly-successful technical boss Ross Brawn insists.
Now F1's sporting boss, Brawn was asked by Italy's La Gazzetta dello Sport about how long it might take Ferrari to pull out of its competitive trough.
"I think 2022 is a great opportunity, with a new car philosophy," he responded, referring to the all-new regulations.
"I have no doubt that they will be working hard at Maranello on next year's car, but their priority must be 2022. They cannot waste such an opportunity."
Later, the pair reunited at Mercedes to less success.
"No, he wasn't," Haug told Sport1 when asked if Schumacher's was a forced final retirement.
"If you look, you will see that Michael was close to his 44th birthday when he retired, but that doesn't mean he was no longer capable of winning in 2013, 2014 and 2015. I think he could even have won more titles," he said.
"When Michael was with us, everything was geared towards the hybrid engine era which began in 2014."
