Ferrari’s main focus for the new Formula One season is getting off to a strong start, to avoid even the possibility of finishing the way it did in 2010.

Speaking at Ferrari’s annual winter retreat in the Italian Dolomites on Wednesday, team director Stefano Domenicali says too much focus has been made on the strategic errors the team made in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix that concluded 2010, whereas an even larger problem was failing to gain points early on.

Domenicali says, “We have to start this year competitive right away, because if you don’t in this competitive state it becomes very tough.”

Ferrari will introduce its 2011 car on Jan. 28. The season begins with the Bahrain GP on March 13.
