F1 » Fry: Ferrari still has 'a lot to do'


Pat Fry: In my opinion, we have overtaken a large part of the other teams in terms of development over the season: we staged a very good recovery, but there is still a long way to go.

While Alonso is certainly in a strong position to win the WDC, for Ferrari to win the Constructors is going to require a Massa turn around and greater points harvest per race. Red Bull is likely to remain consistent, with Weber and Vettel finishing close to one another. While neither may ultimately beat Alonso, the team is in a position to win the WCC. McLaren and Lotus are also suffering from team inconsistency that will plague any hope for a Constructors. There are definitely two championships being run this season.

Alonso may seem to be in a strong position. I don't think he really is. He has just been capitalizing on reliability and his skills, not real speed of the car. Ferrari being a frontrunner is still a big question mark despite their claims. All it takes to dispose Alonso is if one of main contenders gets their act together.

While Ferrari does not have the fastest car on the field, Alonso is in the lead due to 1 simple reason: to finish first, first you have to finish. Everyone has has been tripping over each other due whatever reasons and Alonso has been the only driver this season to finish in the points in all races. That is why he is in the lead of the WDC. He might not be the fastest, but he knows what it takes to win championships and that is consistency.

blublz,
Man did you say 30 races? I find that hard to believe.. What I really
mean is that is really an exceptional situation for a Ferrari driver.
Best Massa give Big Red a couple of impressive wins in the second
halve, or walk the plank he will, Adios.

Badman, Jose

@ Jose
Thats true, thirty races. I dont think he necessarily needs to win (he would like to), he just needs to beat Ferrari's (Alonso's) nearest competition
@ Bjorn
Both Red Bulls failed to finish in Korea (Webber skidded into retirement and Vettel's engine blew up).

I still think that Massa is not driving the same car as Alonzo. Willing to bet that
Ferrari is cleverly concealing that fact. If everything was equal car wise,
and what you say is accurate (I believe it is) Massa would have been long gone.
Ferrari is doing test and development doing the race using Massa as the Goat.
Massa in a good car is never that far off the pace
No complaints from Massa so far. Some nefarious game is beaning played.
I smell a Roach here. Funny what money can do..
Thanks blublz

Jose
