    The problem is, everyone from Ferrari all said this car is an evolution from F1-75, which carries all the strenghts from its predecessor + a much more powerful + more reliable engine
    Yet not a single one of those things appears on the car yet
    What the hell is happening

    Yeah this is our true pace mate. Slower than the Haas of Hulkenberg by half a second.

    Our only hope is that we are sandbagging and as for ICE changes already, something is just not right, maybe installation issues? Charles not happy and also complaining of clutch problems. Somehow I was hoping this weekend our fortunes might change but it currently looks like wishful thinking.

    Can anyone remind me the last time we had actually a clean weekend ? With no reliability issue - car could compete for pole / win - no strategy blunder ?

    Charles wasn't too confident with his PU. Was asking a bit about some power surge and whether everything was alright. A bit concerning.

    The car isn't bouncing, balance looks pretty good. But the lap times aren't impressive.

    The fact is, we ARE slow…at least in FP1 we had our engines turned down, but in FP2 we’re up there with red bull in terms of speed, yet we are too freaking slow

    And AM with Alonso even though they are slow in trap speed, he’s only within a tenth of Max….that aston martin is a quick car

    As usual we are nowhere…are we sandbagging???? YEAH RIGHT…we’re just plain SLOW. Something tells me this is a WRITE OFF YEAR AS WELL….

    It’s as simple as that. You should have got the idea last year itself RB took off 2022 2nd half.

    This looks similar to RB-Vettel 2010-2013 era. Now it’s RB-Max era 2022-2025.

    No team can catch them with this cost cap in place & also RB/Newey got the edge with these ground effect cars.

    Ferrari team never had that consistency in their cars.

    Ex: 2017 was a good base car with engine power /reliability issues. They went different direction in 2018…. The same continued in 2019 as well.

    Similarly 2022 was a good base car. We shouldn’t have accepted that TD39 directive. Ferrari had that veto power.
    Now with current car, our drivers are finding difficult to drive (drivability’s issue).

    I can categorically state, Ferrari still have that power of veto!
    This was retained within the last concord agreement.

    Let's not worry too much about practice. We don't know what the team was testing. Hopefully quali will throw up a different picture.


    Forza Jules

    Ferrari is still 2nd fastest team. Come quali Ferrari will be close to RB.

    My point is that’s not enough. Below are my concerns

    1. In season development
    2. Tyre deg issues
    3. Reliability

    With AMR hanging on behind. If we don’t get top these issues, we will loose 2nd in WCC for sure.
    RB is out of reach, they have plenty of advantage in race pace.
