    And then leaving Ferrari for Honda with alot of information about our Engine. Great idea..

    Ferrari haven't won a title in 11 years. I wouldn't mind RB winning something with a Ferrari engine, better than total Mercedes domination with no end in view.

    In my opinion Ferrari have been guilty of making too many changes in their designers and technical team in recent years, losing that essential element of continuity and so development suffers. We lost Costa to Merc, then Allison, and only Red Bull has a Newey, Binotto may eventually prove to be a success but I am convinced that stability and direction have been lacking for several years. Honda engines are now taking the fight to Merc at our expense, although our engines are the best part of a flawed concept.

    Ferrari has effectively a B and a C car. Make do.

    They need to change the formula.
    They would do it in a heartbeat if we were endlessly winning

    Seems Mercs have been treated extraordinarily well the last few years.

    ...the new SF90 in the MATTE RED, to me it looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    Ferrari need to have more faith in their top people aka designers, engineers etc.
    Instead when things go badly they look for a scapegoat.......often the wrong decision. We are continually employing new people for key positions. Surely they should be the stable long term well respected staff who bring strength and continuity to the team.
    We don't see Merc or RB doing that although some of their staff jump ship or are head hunted!!!

    When you have an official Beta team and a third team that works with you, results are expected. You definitely do not need a client team that right now is beating you.

    Work with the teams you have, make better use, get results. Build on them. Rinse, repeat.

    So true, this is something that has gone thru my mind more than once.

    Seems it’s similar to 2019 cars at first look. Not an expert though to do detailed analysis.

    Back to 2019, where there's Charles there's hope ! There's still 1/2 a 2019 season left for Ferrari to do some winning and podiums. Lewis, Max, Charles and Seb make F-1 still great racing for all to watch. Forget 2020, 2021 for now, there's still daylight shining in 2019! Honda is willing to take whatever penalties, to go with another new engine this season. They want that #1 spot big time! No waiting for next year.

    Plenty to play for 2nd half of the season.F1 is a funny sport a couple of dnfs from mercedes a few wins from other teams will spice it up big time.I expect the butler will make life difficult for Lewis no more Mr nice guy the butler knows he will probably be replaced at the end of the season he might as well go out in a blaze of glory and be remembered as a true fi driver or remain a man who polished Lewis Hamilton's shoes man up butler.

    Very interesting post. Who do you think would be the replacement for Bottas?

    It would appear that Ham is getting his way and Ocon is likely to replace Hulk at Renault. Apparently Toto doesn't want to have to deal with another Ham/Rosburg like camp and prefers the quiet life with Bot.
    Merc have not made a statement though

    Well said R Bradley ! Toto has to know Lewis want's Bottas with him. Bottas is right up there with the top drivers even if it's mostly his car and all it cost to keep him calm is a few poles going his way. If Lewis messes up a race Bottas is a sure possibility to get the flag. They look good to go for 2020. Driver wise so is Ferrari if they just let the boys race in peace, either one in the #1 spot will do the trick. The cars are still a mystery as far as getting them right.
