It finished second to Renault at Silverstone but lost out to Mercedes in Australia, the same day that the Japanese team won the championship.
The team had struggled under new Ferrari driver Felipe Massa, who had taken a season-ending suspension on the same weekend as the team’s first victory at Silverwood.
Mori’s first job as team principal came on May 1 when former F1 boss Marco Mattiacci resigned to take a role as a technical advisor to Ferrari.
The Italian was appointed as the technical advisor for Ferrari’s next race at the Japanese Grand Prix in November.
Marek Rutkowski, a former team principal who is now at Renault, was appointed to a second job in the new year as a consultant for Ferrari.
Rutkowski, who is also the chairman of Renault, will be a member of the team management team and will help decide which drivers receive the necessary backing to race for Ferrari in 2018 and beyond.
“It was a big decision for me to come back to Ferrari,” said Rutkowski.
