It's rather sad that Ferrari is getting their butts whooped by a non-manufacturer team (Red Bull). I know Fernando fans say "Oh, it's all good. As long as he's behind the wheel, he can do anything." but, he's not a miracle worker!

You need to have a good car and a good driver to be on top. If u lack one or the other, u will struggle. There's only so much Fernando can do and I won't be surprised if he's already ticked at the team!


Yep......but hope they understand just what they need to do......this "looking for clues" in the dark worries me more than most! And I think the gag on the drivers was probably more to stop Felipe blabbing than anything else..........

He was allowed to because he uses his head.........Felipe is like a bubbly kid and just spouts somethimes without thinking!

Alonso is a little more diplomatic in some ways like that. Mind you I think that Ferrari might be hiding something. Funny how on Sunday they were suddenly a lot better. ;)

Why is Mika Salo testing an old car for them in suzuka? Odd to say the least........

My guess is that there might be something on the old car that might prove useful to the new one. As it was pre-EBD, that could be a good indicator. Why they've chosen him I've no idea.
