Sorry, Stefano, longtime Ferrari fan here, but...it seems like 99% of your energy has been focused elsewhere for a while now. I agree with the first poster, give these boys something to work with next year.

Alonso must be hard as nails. Ferrari brought a raft of update to Singapore and as Domenicali admitted the car lost pace! If this is the best that the engineers in Modena can do it certainly doesn't bode well for next year. I feel that the fans are really booing the awful performance of the Ferrari technical staff which is preventing any challenge to Vettel/Red Bull dominance by Alonso! Ferrari has been in a downward spiral since 2006 and the “housecleaning” of Todt's superteam has led to one poor racecar after another coming from Ferrari. We can only hope that the engineers Ferrari have hired away from Lotus can breath some creativity into next year's car. Here is my personal BOO to Ferrari for wasting Alonso and Massa's talents these past four years!

nelio,
I wasn't paying attention when Ferrari did the housecleaning after Todt. I've heard some reference to it, but don't really remember what happened. I'm assuming you mean after Rory Byrne faded away?
Anyone?

Too soon to give up 2013 ?

Hey, mister bossman wants to see you.

Really, were you the one who started BOOing ?

Come on, dom... if you feel this way it's of your own, BUT what about the rest of the team ?

That certainly drives Fernando up the wall.

... and so on !

It seems unfortunate that teams have to make the decision long before the end of the season to basically give up whether there is a mathematical possibility or not. Dare I say this is a side effect of testing and budget restrictions. The FIA might as well call an end to the 2013 season if all the major teams have given up already. And who could blame them. Why throw good money after bad. Long gone are the days of teams throwing money into their cars for the last few races dragging themselves back into the title race. And it all ruins the racing for the fans. If teams don't get out the blocks very well, its almost impossible for them to catch up on the breakaway team, of which there is always one. RBR recently, Brawn did it in Jenson's year, Ferrari before etc etc.

@Scooter, I agree. Last year the Austin round was highly anticipated by people in the States, and was well-attended for a new event in a market that is more football-centric than anything else. I'm sure the organizers were already dreading a year-two letdown in ticket sales, and now this.
