Ferrari arent happy with how winter testing has gone, they wanted to be a second per lap quicker than anyone else, know it is too early for anyone to know, they may have made a step forward in qualifying pace.

Did they say they wanted to be a second ahead of everyone else?
It is impossible to tell at this stage either way if they are, I'd say its pretty safe to assume that they are not a second faster, more like a couple of tenths slower if anything. Its not as if they have taken any huge design risks and come up with some game changing device, like Brawn and Red Bull did to get their pace. They have just come up with a pretty normal car with a few like design risks. Its a solid strategy but it will take them a few years to be a really competitive team again.

Its incredible that before a wheel has turned in anger Ferrari are already making excuses for their poor performance. I suggest that there has been so much sandbagging in the recent tests that the formbook is still blank.

Having said that, sadly I would be entirely unsurprised if the same teams that were at the front in 2011 are still in front in 2012 and one or two of the midfield hopefuls will, once again, have their dreams shattered.
