If you were to ask me personally, I would say that Ferrari had a good car, especially when they really didn't have that much in way of reliability issues, but ultimately though RB had the better car when it came to the later races.

Overall the 2012 season was probably the best on record and I can't wait to see what 2013 brings. Speaking of 2013, I would say the 2013 motorsport season is look very good sofar in F1 and other series.

Old man Enzo would have fired anyone trashing his cars, sadly Ferrari has been taking it from Alonso from day one.

Ferrari degraded its name by signing on the crook.

For a fact, someone who couldn't win by going into final races leading (07, 10) is expected to win when he's trailing? And he could not even outdrive his teammate and was behind Button and Hulk simply cos he couldn't master the conditions and pitted more than them. Remember Senna Donnington 93?

Ferrari hires drives to drive and win, not quote samurais and wish bad luck on rivals and wait for hand me downs and trash its cars.

Schumi won against Newey cars. Vettel to Ferrari is the only solution.

Forsake forever

looking at the headline made me think that their starts are actually fast, it is the ends that are slower.:D :D

but i am tending to believe that alonso is part of their problem. many say that he is a lot better than flip (i am not one of those), but look how in the last few races, flip has been faster. the car is basically good, but it seems that alonso is not adapting to it well enough, even though he gives the impression of extracting all from it. flip can extract more.

i admire ferrari, but their continual complaints this year over anything and everything, is doing them a lot of harm.

I agree richard. Massa looked better in the car than Alonso to end the year. You have to be careful listening to Alonso or Ferrari. They yell a lot of things into the air in hopes they stick. Matter of fact they are already yelling that they will give Alonso the car he needs. No mention of Massa. They complained about DRS use for qualifying. It is now changed for next year. That should help them in qualifying.

The good old Ferrari statement that next year will be better - must be coming up to Xmas. Have they not realised that without Brawn & co they are not as they once were.

Ferrari need to stick their had in their pockets and get a decent wind tunnel that doesn't produce an F1 car with the downforce levels of postman pats van. The car the team got for pre-season testing was p1ss poor.
