Tombazis is correct. It's much more than tire issues that have degraded the scuderia's performance over the past four seasons. It's the extremely ordinary performance of Tombazis, Fry, their engineering teams and the satisfied management of Domenicali who seem to believe that making excuses and try to "understand" problems are good enough.

tires are the only thing keeping Ferrari with in a prayer, their car isnt even half the car Red Bull's is. The RBR is at least 2 seconds a lap faster than the overrated Ferrari.

Pirelli tried to give Ferrari a chance, but unfortunately for them the more robust tires of last year have pretty much sealed Ferrari's fate for this year. Imagine if they went back to 2011 style tires, lolz, Ferrari might as well quit F1, lolz.

Some still think the Ferrari is such a drag. Talking about 2 sec of the Red Bull. So Alonso is the reason for the pace? Interesting.

Watch F1 a bit. Senna could bring a bad car through the grid to 2 in Monaco.

Don't think Alonso is that great that he could keep a 'drag' in the hunt for 20 races. Ferrari cant find the source of the final piece of the puzzle. and that puzzles them
