    It's not how start but how you finish.

    i'll believe it when i see it......weather in winter testing or first race
    So the SF1000 proved to be a DUD....let's hope the SF21 will be much better then its predecessor.

    The main thing Ferrari has to copy from R Bull is their pit crews perfect handling each pit stop. Nose job , H P is no help if the car is sitting on a jack in the pits an extra 3 sec. or more.

    You won't need to do this if the car is fast. lol
    Now why teams like mercedes have perfected double stacked pitstops (same with RBR too) remain a mystery lost in time.

    Better to copy Mercs car rather than their pit stops. Even they screw up pit stops sometimes but the car remains.fast regardless.

    OK ! Fast cars can have slow pits. Whats a few seconds between friends. Russell needed a faster Merc car; the pit was not the problem ! But.... Ferrari has no fast car, just Merc and R Bull can say OK to a slow pit on occasion .It's true; Merc did a WDC, WCC anyway slow pits and all. Why hasn't Ferrari thought of just simply copying that Merc rocket?

    How much faster did the car need to be. Did an extra pitstop and still regained the lead. Did another pitstop for the puncture and still finished right behind his team mate plus got fastest lap. Any faster and him and his car would have been onto the next race already.

    I agree!! The car; not Russell was great. There are posts here saying Russell is right up with the top 3 drivers because of that race. Due it in a Williams and I too will put him up there.

    Are you for #$&$#)@ real??? No one from the current grid or from the past could do it in that Williams....give your head a shake boring (not to call you something else on here) TROLL that you are....

    In order for a driver to win (yes even Russel) ne3ds a good car to do it.....no one in the history of F1 has won a championship with a mediocre car....good car and good driver always will win a WDC....

    So please don’t belittle Russel just beacause he did good in the Merc and not so good in the Williams....he’s doing the best he can with the tools he has at his disposal.....he’s beating his teammates in the same car, isn’t he??. That’s all that matters

    OK I agree he's beating his team mate. 3 points in 2020. That as you say is the best he can do. You not me are belittling him. No one here even mentions the winner coming from 18th place to win. I caught 3 stripped bass trolling at 1000 rpms. Long Island sound . 80lb. test line and a artificial lure. Troll that I am for sure!

    Each his own I guess, but as much I’d like that to happen, I don’t think Ferrari will challenge for WCC this year, but rather when the rules revamp come to effect in 2022....by then we’ll prolly have an even stronger engine and hopefully our genius engineers from Maranello will interpret the new rules better and bring some innovative aero ticks to the new car....after all, prolly the South African GURU is already working in some great draft designs as we speak

    I feel the same way but I like to dream. One of our drivers for sure will at least do a podium or two every few races. I keep thinking that HP increase is a big plus along with all the other innovations you mentioned. I need races !!!!!

    I wouldn't mind watching another disappointing year if it meant we are pretty much guaranteed to start winning championships post 2022. The token system would only favour underperformers and it stays till 2022. I'm not sure climbing back to the top for 2021 is strategically the best move. Unless, of course, they only update the engines and whatever necessary stuff for new regs while having the 2022 car in the wind tunnel for the most part. Winning everything from 2022-2026 or whenever is the next regs change would definitely make up for the 2 crappy seasons we have had.

    We already know the car will be called SF21. Mods should rename this thread to "SF21 development thread"

    Not sure on the team wear but hoping they go back to a proper red colour on the car not matte. They have the most sensational tripple layer red cars, I wish they used a different tripple red every race. Clearly the matte is for sponsors to stand out more and has zero performance impact otherwise the whole grid would use it. They went back to a proper finish for their 1000th race, they would not throw performance for a celebration which says to me the ugly matte red should go.

    I agree with you 100% The shinier the better. Not winning was dull enough! We have two shining drivers ready to win. Twitter has photos of Carlos in new Ferrari attire and the red is bright !

    I think it might even out a bit in 2022. I think Mercs biggest trick with their engines was the MGU H. With this gone, we're pretty much back to the KERS days and we were pretty good back then.
