    Sounds funny, but having reliabilty issues on test beds (while simulator numbers still look excellent) would be blessing in disguise. It means Ferrari is pushing things, and not being conservative like in last couple years. Truly hope 667 flies!

    LOLOLOL.....maybe with a bit of luck Nando and Mclaren will be battling with the midfield teams....i'd be laughing sooo hard if even Haas F1 team will be doing better then them....oh wait, of course they;ll be doing better, they'll have the FERRARI engine, of course they'll going past Mclaren with a crippled honda engine any day....
    ...the new SF70H looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    I have big expectations from the PU for next season. I think we will have a slight power advantage over Merc similar to the one they had over us in 2015. It's the chassis that is a big unknown. Over the years even in the toughest seasons (ignoring 2014), no matter how bad the car was the engine was a consistent strong point. It has been many years since we have had a great chassis/aero, and this will be the big test.

    Are you not at the wrong place, judging by your profile picture?!
    I mean, there is a freedom of speech and thinking, but I am just wandering why here?!?

    Yes Ferrari does have a chance this year. But dont rule out Mac.
    They had a terrible year, but theres no reason to think they will not make gains.
    I wouldnt be surprised if theyre running upwards of midfield.
    People were saying the same thing about us after 2014 and we made a
    pretty good comeback.
    I have no idea where Haas will be, new team, new chassis. Im hoping Sauber has a better year.

    hi Stefa....yeah i guess he got lost and accidentally stumbled across this awesome forum and decided to post a bunch of non sense comments here, NOT realizing that this is actually a FERRARI forum....LOL


    good luck to HIM, his idol Nando along with McMowers because they'll need a LOT of next year.....Muahhhahha

    I don't know of title chances but I agree that Ferrari needs to make big steps forward with chassis, aero, suspension and PU etc. ie. just about everywhere. Especially as the competition is trying to achieve the same.

    I would not rule out McLaren-Honda. Who knows what sort of rocket they are able to produce for 2016 season. Or a dud.

    There really is no comparison that can be drawn there. Yes we were in a pretty bad shape last year, embarrassing even, but we were fighting for 3rd with Wiliams. While what Honda and Mclaren did last season will go down as one of the most spectacular flops in f1. The car has nothing going for it. Shockingly poor reliability, pedestrian levels of power, mediocre chassis. Worst of all they showed no sighs of improvement through the year. They have a massive budget, they used their engine tokens, and brought many aero parts to the car and if anything the gap to the front runners grew bigger (excluding the first 2 races). The reliability continues to be as awful as it was at the start of the year. So in recap they need to find a lot of power, downforce, and reliability in just a few months.

    My thoughts exactly!!!And another thing that people forget is that we(as Merc and Renault)in 2014 where in unknown territories while Honda could observe how this new PU works in real life and even more the best PU in McLarens back(even if it was lower specification)!!!So yes they had no excuse for their form!!!
    FERRARI FOR EVER !!!!!!!

    Merc was never in unknown territories with these PU

    Honda had a year to carefully monitor how the 3 other manufacturers were doing, and where were their strengths and weaknesses. They cherry-picked the best ideas from them, and on paper their layout looked pretty clever and well packaged. The reality however was very different. Considering that they had some numbers from the 1st season when it comes to how much power they have to get, how much energy it was expected to recover per lap, etc, they did a very poor job. Either they started dyno testing very late and had no time to make major changes, or they were counting on some miracle that will fix the whole mess.

    Never a Mclaren fan myself, but I wouldn't dare write them off as being unable to come back fighting. We under-estimate them at our peril....although I sincerely hope that they won't become a serious threat any time soon.

    Of corse anything CAN happen.We just comment on the facts,and the facts say that their kind of lost their path and this might not be an easy fix!!!People tend to correlate this to our situation back in 2014 but its completely different!!Anyhow i wish they dont make big gains!!

    I think we were so bad in 14 that we were just as bad as Mac. We brought Updates n still stunk it up. This is Ferrari, even in 09 when we didn't do well kimi was still able to win a race. Reminded me of 94 when we were a joke. so while u don't think it compares, I certainly did. Hope I never see it again.

    I can understand wanting McLaren to do badly, but why Fernando? He only did good things for us.

    Well if that's your opinion..... I hope for every ferrari fan's sake that you don't get to experience a season where your team has 0 podiums and finishing second to last in the championship.

    Yes he did. Bit now he is no longer part of SF, therefore he is "enemy" as every else not driving for Ferrari!

    I really think there's something lost when there is such a large gap between the top four teams (Mercedes, Ferrari, Williams, Red Bull). I want to see Ferrari consistently coming in first and McLaren consistently get into Q1 this season. Yeah, I know all about spygate and how they're "the enemy," but better competition is good for the sport.

    FORZA FERRARI!

    I would love to see Mercedes, Renault, Ferrari, McLaren, FI, Williams and Sauber separated by only a one second a lap difference in qualifying but have Ferrari win every race. It is not that satisfying when Mercedes is our only competition.
    Which is why I thought our Singapore win was the best this year. We were having a (seemingly) close battle with Ricciardo's Red Bull.
    Vous resterez toujours en nos coeurs, Jules.

    there i fixed it for ya....WE are the current second fastest team to Mercedes....or at least we were in 2015....what i WANT to see from Ferrari, is to for US to be at the front fighting for wins, with Mercedes and everyone else being our CLOSEST competitors....

    who knows, maybe with a bit of luck and a LOT of hard work from all the boys and girls back in Maranello, maybe this "dream" of mine and every Ferrari fan out there may come true
    ...the new SF70H looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    Indeed. Reliability issues over performance issues anytime.
    No need to worry about tokens when making engine more reliable.
