F1 » Ferrari ready to write F1 2010 title off


Ferrari already seems to be preparing itself for the worst in front of the FIA World Motor Sport Council today, with team principal Stefano Domenicali hinting that the time could soon arrive to give up on its F1 2010 title chances in favour of shifting the focus onto 2011...

They deserve to be penalised more than the 100,000 that they have already been fined. That amount is loose change for them. If we get into definite budgets, fines could be percentages of budgets. That would really hurt a team if they transgress.

As for the teams remarks that Smedley's apology to FM was because the car wasn't good enough, well that's just trying to make a story fit the facts.

As for the 2010 season, I believe that they only have an outside chance. If they don't go well at Monza, I think that'll be it.

Kimi Raikkonen was the equivalent of nearly 50 points behind with only 2 race remaining we he won the championship... The points gap this season is somewhat misleading.

Yeah, but the Ferrari of 2007 was one of the two best cars. Ferrari are behind Red Bull and McLaren now. At least in 2007 the Ferrari and McLaren were almost equal.

The F10 has shown it is capable of winning races and was quickest in the practice at Spa. Even Massa, supposedly Ferrari's "no.2 driver" managed fourth. Alonso is starting to look like he was overrated...

Ferrari always flaunt the rules and think they can get away with it. Its about time they were shown the same ruthlessnes shown to Mclaren. Time to wipe the smug look off el cheato's face.

is it not better to wait for the conclusion of the hearing, before passing judgment? ferrari have done nothing different to what mclaren did, so why should they have more severe sanctions, when mclaren got away scot free? apart from that, ferrari have already intimated that another penalty could result in a civil court case, so that may delay things even further.

So much for all teh pre-season hype about Alonso being the man to beat... Hasn't gone to plan is an understatement. Ferrari should have held on to Raikkonen for another year. They had a much more balanced driver line-up that produced more points.

Next year may be good for Ferrari, since Alonso will have more input into the car from the beginning.

BTW, I really hope Hamilton doesn't win the championship. Didn't he get in trouble in almost all the first few races, and got away basically with warnings? He's probably broken the rules more than Alonso has this year.

looking up other sites, they headline the "story" as "ferrari still eye title etc" and reading the story, both headlines could be right. it there is a good result on sunday, ferrari will still push, but if it is a poor result, ferrari may consider concentrating more on 2011.
