I agree that their team structure appears stable, but others are in the same situation. The cause of many setbacks for the last two years was an inconsistency between wind tunnel data and real world results. They had to shut their wind tunnel down to perform a complete recalibration, let's hope it works and they can get a better car on the grid.
But there's no guarantee that political instability within the team is a recipe for disaster, Massa put on a stout charge against Hamilton on 2008 despite the crazy internal politic forcing Raikkonen out to replace. And in 2009 Brawn took over the departing Honda, obtained an engine, and went on to win.
But I believe they appear to be in a better situation than in the last few years,
I think the main thing is they are not in these battles for chief designers and engineers... they are stable. Macca, Merc and Lotus could all be in chaos if this all moves
