Come on Felipe! He ended 2012 on good form, I'd love to see him take it into 2013 and challenge Alonso. Imagine the fireworks! If he can mount a serious title challenge from the beginning of the year I don't think Ferrari would stand in his way either. He is family to them. I think they'd like to see him win.

He's not going to challenge Alonso for the title! These are just deluded thoughts, disagree all you like but some of the people on here are just so deluded, it's like saying Rosberg will challenge Hamilton or Webber can finally beat Vettel, these things won't happen, but yeah the Ferrari's looking good even though today hasn't gone to planned.

I didn't say he *will* challenge Alonso, I said I'd "love to see" it. To put it in clear terms for you, I've made no predictions, rather aired my hopes. Perhaps before branding people delusional you should brush up on your reading comprehension.

"it's like saying Rosberg will challenge Hamilton"

Rosberg put a 7 time world champion to shame for 3 years on the trot. Hamilton did no such thing to Button. Game on.

Massa only managed to be faster trhan his team mate on a couple of occasions. Of course, the haters came crying ha ! ha ! Alonso is slower and that kind of crap...Go figure.

That said, Felipe really seems to have found his mojo and it will indeed be cool to see him win some races again ! Now, if he can be a title contender as well as Fernando, Ferrari won't complain nor will the viewers.

The Ferrari is using a DRS booster system using a Fluidic Switch, which channels air flow above a certain speed to increase the drag reduction system. It's a difficult thing to get working right on a race track, but could be a useful gain if they nail it. Most of the top teams will probably evolve one as the year goes on.
