Car looked like a 'dog' when it was launched and simply is a dog. I have no pity for them after stopping Sauber from winning last race with a 'team' message to slow down.

Yeah Mike you have to admire the way Domenicali used his telekinetic powers to make Perez run off the track. I wonder why he doesn't use this super skill more often "ooh there's Lulu, gravel trap for you young man" come to think of it maybe he does use his telekinetic skills more than we think,could explain a few excursions.

Spongy, maybe Ferrari should give you a call, you seem to think that you understand their car better than they do....

Taigherkin, they have called. I can't help them. I pointed them in Saubers direction for the help they so badly need. Let's see if that works before you continue to flap your gums.

Eight tenths of the pace of the quickest in qualifying, Fernando will have to show why he gets paid the 'big bucks' again. Ferrari shoud in reallity be behind Mercedes 'and' Lotus in the standings but fortunately F1 isnt always as predictable as we think. If only the other side of the garage could find a way to beat the same opposition. During Rubens Barrichello's time at Ferrari, the team would find Rubens in a position to take advantage of conditions encountered during the Malaysian GP!

I hope that Bahrain will be cancelled. So Ferrari wont loose points to their rivals there.And than will come Spain.There Ferrari should be much better. But I doubt they will be able to challenge McLaren there, because the gap is to big.But we must wait and see. As for China I hope it rains in Shanghai all the weekend, so we should watch the most spectacular venue. The front-runners (McLaren & Red Bull) struggling to keep the pace of the midfield teams (Ferrari, Sauber ect.). Oh my god I love the rain soaked races when the most competitive teams loose the momentum.

"Dog" of a car or not, one thing is for sure.
Fernando earned every last shekel of his paycheque at that last race. The amount of heat that the team would have faced if they had performed to expectations would have been tremendous. Even if he doesn't win another race (unlikely) he has earned a well deserved place in the Ferrari Hall of Fame.

I don't even LIKE Ferrari,but you gotta give props when it's due.
