Ferrari doesn't need to add anyone to its team in order to be successful in the future, according to team principal Maurizio Arrivabene.

The Singapore Grand Prix weekend saw Ferrari linked with a move for Mercedes executive director (technical) Paddy Lowe, following the departure of James Allison earlier this season. However, Arrivabene dismissed such a move, saying he has full faith in new technical director Mattia Binotto to deliver results in the coming years.

"The atmosphere today in Maranello is very good," Arrivabene said. "We have the right people with Mattia and the people who are working with Mattia.

"They just need to continue to keep up this kind of atmosphere, to look forward to next year, keeping an eye on this year also and eventually to work in peace. That means, without pressure. It’s exactly what they are doing and I have nothing to add. So we don’t need to add anyone.

"I said many many times that we are perfectly fine. Mattia is doing a good job, we are OK as we are, and we don’t need anyone else. Mattia is our technical director where before James was our technical director, now it’s Mattia with all the organisation that is in place."

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff also says he doesn't see Lowe leaving his team as he wants to retain the current structure which has been so successful.

"There is lots of rumours out there and it is a little bit of the silly season has extended from drivers to other key personnel," Wolff said. "We are happy where we are now with the team. We have obviously great spirit within the team and we want to maintain that."
