    So for now we have good engine based on speculation. If we exclude 2014 we have very good engine past few years.

    Aero segment is what is fear for me.

    This year we have much larger barge boards, ferrari was very strong in that field from early 2000.

    What we can except from this aero regulations we will see.

    Ferrari in history never was pin point straight forwar with changes , so I dont except championship winning car. Also if we have good car, our development season is very low.

    Rb, Merc even Mclaren have strongest development.
    Ferrari = 227 victories + 210 pole positions + 240 fastest laps = constructors championships 16

    I don't think 2015's in-season development was bad at all. We stayed far ahead of the rest of the back. Last year's development was poor because of the departure of James Allison, and because it was probably halted to focus on this year's car.

    FORZA FERRARI!

    They were too aggressive, they wanted to take it to mercedes pase wise, at all costs. The season started with Ferrari a clear 2nd, but far behind Mercs, which had the experience of the v6 hibrids a long time, like someone added here.

    Scuderia Ferrari completed a two-day testing outing at its own test track in Fiorano. The Italian squad put correlation work on its agenda and carried out a couple of runs despite to the rainy, cold weather conditions

    Ferrari fired up its two-year old model SF15-T in Fiorano to complete a test. The programme was based on correlation work which aimed to evaluate the data gathered in the simulator and compare that with the real on-track data.

    Ferrari's newly recruited third driver Antonio Giovinazzi drove on the first day while on the second day the driving duties were shared by the Italian in the morning and the team's last champion Kimi Räikkönen who took over the wheel for the afternoon.

    The SF15-T was in standard configuration, which means the team did not run its 'mule' car which mimiced the downforce levels expected in 2017.

    23-year-old Giovinazzi sounded delighted after the test.

    „It was a nice feeling to complete the first laps in a Formula 1 car. It is a unique experience for an Italian to leave the garage with a Ferrari."

    "The test itself was also interesting. There were many procedures which I had to follow. The guys were very friendly and made my life easy. I want to say a big thank you for that to the whole team,” said the man from Martina Franca.

    Ferrari will continue to work on 9th and 10th February when it evaluates Pirelli's wet weather tyres for the forthcoming season.

    Former Ferrari driver Gerhard Berger has predicted another hard year for the Scuderia, saying that he sees little prospect of revived fortunes against the likes of Mercedes and Red Bull.

    “My heart is Ferrari and it hurts to criticise,” said the German, who drove for the team for three years in the 1980s, and returned for another three-season stint at Maranello in the 1990s, during which time he claimed five of his ten Grand Prix victories.

    The situation now is like this: Ferrari in 2015 with luck took some successes, and they assumed that was an achievement. But they are now really far from Mercedes and Red Bull. Somehow Ferrari is back where they were when I drove for them."

    "Ferrari is sensitive to any criticism," he said. "It is somehow the 'golden calf', which one must not touch.

    Berger repeated his comments that Sebastian Vettel had been wrong to move from Red Bull to Maranello in 2015, and said that the four-time world champion might have to consider moving on at the end of 2017.

    "He underestimated what Michael [Schumacher] did," Berger insisted. “Michael went to Ferrari, but he took Benetton people with him.

    "When he arrived, Ferrari was in the same state that it is today. Sebastian should have made the move to Ferrari only if he could - as Michael did - take key figures from Red Bull along with him.

    “I don't see there will be much change at Ferrari in 2017, and then Vettel will need to make a decision."

    I believe that after winning 4 titles in a row with the same team, Seb wanted a challenge, and hes getting it, just like Michael did. Whether or not he has the same passion and patience as Michael is yet to be seen.

    Different situations. When Michael left Benetton for Ferrari, he brought some/most of the team with him. When Vettel left RedBull after winning 4 WDC's, he brought no team with him.

    Mercedes showed Lewis how much they have worked on that v6 hybrid engine, he was easily sold after that, who wouldnt be? What did Ferrari show Seb? Pictures from past glory?

    I've been reading all the latest posts, and I find myself anxious to see the new cars and their looks. As for our team... I too hope that we can deliver our drivers a strong competitive car, but even if the team does a superb job, the others are not sleeping, and most important, theres no big news "leaking" regarding their projects. Even the first tests won't give a true indication about the competitive order of all teams. But I do hope we can be a strong presence on the top of the timesheets... Forza!!!

    Let me rephrase it.

    What did Seb showed? Pictures from the past glory with best racing car.
    He wasn't near to be called "great" driver in Ferrari.
    Only thing which he did, he brought his notebook...
    So why Ferrari needed to show him something?
