We know Ferrari as one of the innovators in this sport, but sometimes, especially when tech rules are so tight as nowadays, it's also important to follow and implement other team's solutions.
I'm not an expert, but as a feeling, Ferrari might need to lower down the nose cone(bringing more downforce at the front), exhaust & a new generation front wing in the likes of McLaren and Redbull(with flaps centered to each of the front tyres).
And also maybe reconsider the opening at the rear that is supposed to blow air over the diffusor or lower part of rear wing.
It might make sense, also to raise the rear of the car in order to have a lower front wing (i.e. Redbull).

Shouldn't they hire Rosberg, instead? Or do you not understand the FACT that he's been faster than Schumi (with identical equipment) for more than a season? :p

zib,i don't 'hate' anyone dislike is a better word,and anyway i only dislike Luca and Alonso in that team for very good reasons,i actually think Stefano and Massa are very nice people indeed,so please don't say that i hate everything about Ferrari because that is simply not true.

For the sake of the sport and us , fans we all need STRONG Ferrari! The show would get much more exciting with three teams to fight for championship instead of one. I'm very negative on Ferraris team. Last year they were promising they would catch up and now the same. The truth is the rest should be trying to catch Ferrari considering their budget and history in F1. I can already imagine emotions flying high over here when Nando starts wining races :)

pinio- you forgot the "h" in whining at the end of your post.

I'm guessing that what you meant is that Ferrari still has to improve some more before Alonso starts whining about races.

I'd rather see Renault and Mercedes fighting with RBR and McLaren- 5 place sounds like a good spot for Ferrari to me. (Though I like Massa...)
