    Poll: Do you think 2012 is looking good for the Scuderia Ferrari?

    I am sure than most of you want to be optimistic and say yes but be truthful.

    Please vote and say why?

    Thank you.

    I voted not sure because I am a big fence-sitter.

    I am trying to be optimistic but I don't want to get my hopes dashed again

    Yes.
    I am sure that 2012 will be one of the best years for us.
    I have no doubt in our success as we have done so many change in the technical department.
    I trust in Pat too much,he has done everything right.
    Ferrari has been in the right direction, which is led by Pat.
    Go Pat,we support you.
    Forza Ferrari.

    I voted not sure because I know we have taken quite an aggressive approach, which I think can go one of two ways, hopefully it goes the winning way.

    I think we will be closer to the the Red Bulls at the start of the season but whether we can get the Championships - and whether we can maintain that throughout the season I'm not sure so that's how I voted.

    I don't think there is any other answer but one, considering Ferrari and our record.

    Yes, not because of any specific technical stuff, but because I think we have made great additions and built our team in the right areas. Getting Rory back and deeply involved was brilliant. Building that team and giving them the encouragement to be creative, along with or resources are the things that make me optimistic about this year.

    I voted yes.

    As we've seen in Silverstone, without EBD, Ferrari seems to be the faster overall package. And yet this year's rules are pretty much similar to last year apart from the lack of EBD and the lower nose. So we're probably the least affected by those minor changes, and this means we already have a good foundation to start on for this year's car.

    2nd, we've finally moved to pull rod suspension, so there's hope that we may be able to improve on our weakness with the harder tire compound.

    3rd, we appears to have our own version of that new thing Lotus found. This is good, if it works, it would be great. Even if it doesn't, at least we won't be wasting time trying it out now while other teams would have to start working on it now to see if they can make that idea work for them.

    Of course I may be wrong, its all guesswork

    Voted yes for these reasons...
    1 - No EBD (Silverstone results showed our strengths without it)
    2 - Greater involvement by Rory Byrne...(you can always rely on a South African to come good ..lol)
    3 - No wind tunnel issues this year (hopefully)
    4 - Move to pull rod suspension
    5 - More aggressive design philosophy (initial crash test results verify this)
    6 - Pat Fry more integrated into the team
    7 - Hiring of Hirode Hamashima

    There is of course the possibility that one of the other teams
    will be quicker and better but IMHO all the above are a recipe for success and shows that we are serious and aiming in the right direction for a super year...

    Look at Silverstone GP . We were close (without ebd) about 2 tenths in qualy, and we won the race . And Ferrari didn't developed EBD so much like McM and RB . So i hope this year would be good for us

    i know its waaaay to early to say. But, with all the hiring of new engineers to strengthen our team. Think we are going to bounce back really hard this year.

    Would love to say YES but I need to see evidence.
    Let's just see how we fare in Os.
    I have been optimistic for the past 3 years and been disappointed so I am quietly confident this year.

    I found myself agreeing with this, and then I asked myself "Can you be quietly confident without being optimistic?"

    i too voted YES...i have TOTAL confidence in Pat Fry, and now that Rory Byrne is onboard with us, giving his FULL input as well as brilliant ideas that he has, i for sure think that 2012 will be our year, and if they'll call the new single seater F2012, most likely will be our championship.

    ...so i am fully optimistic about next year, and who knows, maybe the car will be THAT good that even Fernando will spoil and beat Kettel's (Vettel the screaming school girl) pole position records of last year as well as WINS...

    I'm optimistic for all the above given reasons.
    But, I thought like that last year!
    However, 'no' is unthinkable.
    So a definite 'don't know' because....
    I'm certain the team's put in all the effort, time, genius required. We have two drivers who are totally committed and capable of great things, but we don't know what everyone else has done and sadly I don't see RBR/ AN losing their way just yet........but, unlike last year, I'll be very, very happy indeed to be proved wrong.

    Anyway, 'Winning isn't an obligation - sport is about sacrifice, team commitment and passion,' he (Alonso) added. `does that help?

    Don't think can get any worse than last year, so i voted 'YES'. Without EBD we should be much closer to the front.

    I think the secret of this years car will be centred on the floor which by all reports is a belter so thats why i'm optimistic.

    Maybe it's just another way of saying the same thing-----in other words I am repeating myself.
