    They now have strongest engine. This year got it wrong with car design philosophy- low drag. I wouldn’t it’s a championship winning car but should have won 6 races by now.

    At this point, we’re only guessing that our engine is TOP class
    Maybe we are only topping speed traps in every session this year due to our low drag a very efficient aero, have you thought of that scenario??

    I mean the Williams of 2014 was super fast on straight line speed, I remember in Monza that year it had a top speed of close to 370 k/h, yet the works Mercedes walked all over it due to it having more downforce

    So yeah technically we don t know if our engine is the best, maybe next year if ferrari build a car like red bull or Merc with more downforce, we’ll see how good our engine really is....right now we’re comparing apples to oranges kind of thing....don’t you think????
    ...the new SF90 in the MATTE RED, to me it looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    I tend to agree with you. The more Toto praises our engine and says we are faster, the more I believe the opposite. I think it is all down to circumstance; track layout, tyres, weather, etc.

    No.

    The community is very specific in recognising that is the best. Not everyone in F1 lying.

    what community??? you're one of those believing Toto's bunch of lies??? when he says OUR engine is the best.....its' our car design this year, more efficient and slippery through the air, hence the engine don't work quite as hard....i'd like to see if we had levels of downforce like red bull OR Merc, how good our engine would have been then.....quess we'll never know, or maybe next year when ferrari will redesign the car A LA Mercedes or red bull, we'll see how good our engine will be then...

    Our engine is probably behind Merc IMO which is why we have gone down the aero route we have.

    Engine wise may be merc reached their maximum & couldn’t find any gain so went with more aero efficient philosophy???
    Although they have tyre advantage, which gives them more flexibility.

    According to Toto, Ferrari are 4 km/h faster on the straights.

    He has also indicated that the Ferrari engine could have the most horse-power.

    Finally someone that is a agreeing with me and is making sense of what I’ve been saying all along....we have a very efficient car which is much slippier through the air hence higher top speed....

    Charles took his car and did pole, and win !!! There's now 3 top cars on the track, it's up to the driver, and a little luck, not just "The Car" to keep winning and podiums. 2019 is still a long way from over. Great racing up front by 3 great cars and drivers. No down force , wrong tires, 2021 we will be O K ! That term slippery car is the only thing that sounds right !

    I think the gap is closed compared to years passed, hence you see Honda right up there too. But I tend to agree that Mercedes still has the advantage.

    It's not just our lack of downforce but the inability to get the (Merc-spec) tyres into the operating window and then managing to keep them there without degradation, which seems to be an impossible task. The aero and engine may be good but that's never enough when circuits have corners.

    it's ironic how Williams have the slowest car with supposedly the best engine.

    Has it all gone quiet on Aldo Costa or is he just on gardening leave?

    He’s joining Dallara in 2020

    Surely Ferrari could get him back with the right incentive, or did they part on bad terms previously?

    The latter. Tbh we can't blame Ferrari for sacking Costa, it's not like he was doing a great job as TP. I mean Ferrari got lapped at the Spanish GP, even after leading the race for 10+ laps at the beginning.

    Thanks for that, I thought he hadn't done much good at Ferrari but then went on to be part of the Merc roller-coaster, so it seemed like a big turnaround in his abilities which I never understood. Don't Dallara have an input in the Ferrari chassis, though?

    I think Costa is, and has always been a suspension expert, aero wasn't his forte. The man behind current Mercedes domination is Ross Brawn, he built the foundations of their current success.

    As for Dallara, they are a private aero company. I believe they built or designed the HRT/Marussia chassis and helped HAAS with their 2016 car. But no, they never had any input in the Ferrari chassis.

    I don't agree. I think the general consensus is that Ferrari has the most powerful engine, especially when it comes to qualifying and early laps in race. Where we are probably lacking compared to Mercedes is fuel efficiency, but overall I believe strongly that Ferrari has the best engine in F1. I have also heard of rumours of Mercedes having certain issues with their engines.

    Aldo is now at Dallara. I suspect this is his gardening leave before joining us.

    Mario Isola Merc's savior, and Pirelli boss claims it's impossible to improve tires without an extra test which is next to impossible to get this year. So much for any help for Ferrari and the rest tire wise. Merc got it made for sure. They don't even try to hide it! Meanwhile let's just pray for the straightaways to get Charles the wins !

    Yup, it looks like Merc is getting a head start on next years tires. Lots of nice information right to mercs engineers to be sure that Hamilton gets number 7. Pirelli says #Fit4F1, I say #Fit4Merc.
