I don't think it's that bad. Yes the car was awful at Barcelona but Alonso had no problem keeping up with Webber in Turkey. It seems the biggest problem is the aero, the rest of the car seems to be quite good. I reckon it will do great at high speed circuits such as Monza and Spa. They only need to get it to work on aero-heavy tracks as well and they're within a chance. Alonso isn't out of it yet.

Well, not further out than the rest of the field anyway, Vettel seems almost unbeatable.

Is it really down to costa, there doesn't seam ro be that many designers in f1 who have produced race winning cars let alone championship winners, although they did struggle the last time they had kers!

truth being told ferrari failed to bring new developments or ideas to formula1 like mclaren or red bull did for many years now, they only played catch up during the season, so definitely they need huge changes there, since playing catchup does not work anymore, if it were possible they could combine alonso, lewis and vettel into a uber pilot and they will still fail miserably with the car they have this year

I have to agree with the comment above re Dominicali - he has to go. He spends too much time concentrating on what other teams are doing and complaining to the FIA.
