That being said I need to see a couple more races over diff circuits in order to get a real feel for where they are but to have Ferrari 4th best currently would be fair to say. And the one team who had a bad weekend was Aston, we don’t know where they are yet they could be the team that pushes Ferrari to 5th fastest, time will tell.

  • As a lifelong Ferrari fan, it's sad to see them struggling. But to be honest they've had 2 former champs as drivers and failed to provide them with a car and strategy to win championships. 14 years since a championship and even 2007 was a very lucky. For a team with that history and resources they need to be doing a lot more.

    Prad GPrad GAcum 3 Zile
  • As an non-tifosi, it's exciting to see them drop back. They'd been perennial contenders for 25 years, they've had a colossal financial advantage, so seeing them struggle, therefore giving other teams a chance to compete for podium places on the regular, is very satisfying. I'll take advantage of it while it lasts. On the other hand, the struggle has made Charles Leclerc appear positively world class. I think there's a serious argument to be made that he's the fastest driver on the grid.

    • Everything is relative in F1 and the rules are the same for everyone. All the cars are slower this season but Ferrari lost the least time compared to 2020 and, all jokes aside, they didn't have THE worst car on the grid, yet in Bahrain Merc lost around 2 seconds while Ferrari only 0.500.

Now I understand that Ferrari will return strong. I can't wait for battles on the front. Until then, I am OK with races like Bahrain. With the token system, they did the maximum in my opinion.

I think Leclerc's ambition for 3rd place in driver's championship is way too optimistic with the Mclarens being so competitive this year. Anyhow, as said, it's just the first race, and I just can't wait for the next one 😎

  • I think we can expect them to compete for P3 in the constructors. We have to consider 3 aspects : 1) They still have to find the optimal set-up with the new rear sospension ; 2) They are going to copy the Mclaren diffuser within a couple races ; 3) They are stronger than Mclaren on qualifying and in many circuits it's going to be really difficult to overtake them. Bahrain was an exception

  • the good thing, if ferrari this years fights for 3-4 in the championship will be seen as a success. That's good to better focus on 2022 and give time to carlos and charles to find a good dynamic between them. Plus they will have more wind tunnel time than if they fought for the champ, so in overall this could allow them to better start the new era

    Alejandro FernandezAlejandro FernandezAcum 4 Zile
  • May be, because they didn't knew others cars progress. Except someone from McLaren giving their car data to Ferrari, they will confident to tell Media that they can fight for podium. It is like Aston Martin last year who gain benefit by copying Mercedes car and gain more points and win 1 race and go strictly to trash bin this year. They still thinking Alpha Tauri and McLaren had better progress than them. So, the only one way to claimed the progress is the result in IMOLA and Hungary GP (because they put high down force to car so their cars faster in corners, bit slower in straight). The simple reason is Bahrain is NOT good track for their car performance. Why Leclerc gain P4 again? Because purely his skill, NOT his car.

Look how he crashed into Ocon last race , silly silly mistake and blaming other driver - I am glad he is no longer at Ferrari. He looks like a nice guy, but sometimes his actions are hard to justify.

    • NO. They love Seb. Media stirring it deeply to gain fans attention like WWE. The main problem is budget cap that cut off in 3 years (started from 2020 because Corona virus). Vettel just grilled by Italians Media (they did to Charles Leclerc also). He didn't able to worked under HIGH pressure, i think. For Ferrari (whom supported and funded by the state like French to Renault Alpine), it is double pressure when they are hiring Seb with 43 millions payment while the budget cap cut off almost half of the regular basis. To remaking SF1000, they will using whom money? The only way to solve problem is firing Seb and hiring Carlos. With Charles and Carlos in their side, they just need to pay drivers 16 millions. They can remaking SF1000 by that way, even not fastest cars like others in long STRAIGHT lines, but the car go faster in corners. Seb is NOT scapegoat, he is just victim of the shit system. Now he facing the same 'dull' disaster in Aston Martin.......i wish they can fix the car.....SOON. Otherwise Seb will return to his 'SF1000' nightmare but this time in GREEN CAR.

  • Honestly as long as there's improvement from last year, I don't really care if they are P3 and best of the rest or behind Mclaren. 5th is the lowest acceptable place this year. another 6th place constructor's finish would be shambolic. Due to the system implemented that the worst team gets the most wind tunnel time, I'm not too worried about Ferrari going forward. I'm sure Ferrari have put most of their resources and personell on coming out the best out of the gates in 2022. Hopefully the Ferrari PU can make another step in the right direction from 2021 to 2022 for the engine freeze until 2025.
