    Nothing gets worse than 2014. When Williams over took ferrari on top speed.

    If I take this FIA-Ferrari engine issue on other side, it feels like ferrari played it smart to get heads up on 2021 reg change.

    As per my opinion, Mercs has sizeable advantage which ferrari might think it’s not catchable & also RB Honda getting into the act. So may be plan for long term where they can outfox the opponent’s come 2021.

    RB is solely focused on this season to beat Mercs & to keep Max happy. So there is a tussle between Mercs/Ham & RB/Max.
    Where Mercs will b busy in defending RB. Which gives ferrari some buffer to get early advantage on next year car development. Where ferrari can dominate for longer period. Instead of current 1year challenge.

    It’s just my view, as far I read Leclerc comments on title challenge & Binotto words. Also the current FIA-Ferrari saga.

    It only looks like a W10 but it isn't a W10. Racing Point will be fighting with McLaren and Renault, nothing more, nothing less.

    I wrote on Motorsport my interpretation of this year's Ferrari engine: Binotto stated that it is down on power compared to last year's, which probably means that it will be down on the peak power of last year that they were able to employ when needed. I would take it that this year's engine would have a higher baseline output than last year's but without that steroid boost of power that caught everyone's attention. The team and drivers also keep saying that they expect to be up to speed after a few races, so who knows what they are brewing; literally!

    I'm hoping that the SF1000 proves to be a championship winning car, maybe even a BEAST!!!

    exactly my thoughts on this.....OZ cannot come fast enough for US to take POLE there

    Ferrari's Spec 2 PU is coming after 7 races which is also expected to be better than last year's engine unlike current Spec 1. That along with new aerodynamic package (work for which has already started) should hopefully be enough to take pole(s).

    So you mean we’re gonna suffer for 7 races fighting with “copying point” for 4th until we get a better spec 2 engine?
    I don’t believe that for one second, ferrari is sand bagging big time mate....

    There’s no way the Alfa and Haas having or doing 330 + km/h in testing and Ferrari with same engine only doing 305....

    I see a lotta sandbagging at Ferrari

    Can be low on power, but can be well upgradeable and can have much less consumption, etc.
    Binotto's words can mean really anything. He did not say they will be less competitive.
