F1 » Fry and Tombazis out amid Ferrari F1 shake-up


A lot of new names and faces in Ferrari, and I have said it before, I have followed them since 1968, and they are a LONG-LONG way from winning anything, no drivers championship nor a constructors title . They have 2 drivers, Kimi, who does not have a decent race in him, and Vettel who was okay but had the best car on the grid--- thanks to Newey, last year he was pretty poor. Vettel is not even close to Schummi, if he thinks that he can turn Ferrari round and win anything with them. Perhaps in another 2-3 years they will be back at the front, for now, they will be middle of the road. Ian.

F1 » Alonso’s Ferrari farewell ‘emotional’


Well I think that Alonso has made the right choice, to join a team that might produce a winning car, because it will be a LONG-LONG time before Ferrari can build a decent car, and fight for wins or even a championship. Alonso might not be everybodies favorite guy, but he dragged every Ferrari for the last 5 years round these tracks, and Ferrari could not give him a decent car in any of them. I expect that next season they will be even worse , and score less points than this season, as Vettel will do worse than Alonso, and Kimi is just taking up space. Ferrari should have put Bianchi in that car , not Kimi. And this is from somebody who has followed Ferrari for the last 40 years. Even the Italian car industry is in ruins. FIAT are more interested in America than anything else, FIAT should now stand for FIXING-INTO-AMERICAN-TRANSPORT. Ian.

F1 » Raikkonen hopes for ‘welcome surprise’ at Monza


What surprise--- everybody else is not turning up to race, so Ferrari will have the track to their-selves and will secure two podium places, that would nice. Was at Monza last year and Alonso was second, Vettel won the race and did NOT get a very good response from the crowd--- perhaps, Rosberg will get the same this year if he gets on the podium, which he most likely will , and hopefully with Hamilton. After following Ferrari for over 40 years, they are in a low point, but hopefully at some point will get back up to the front.

F1 » Alonso admits ninth is Ferrari’s level


Well guys lots to agree with on the two pages on Ferrari ------ HOW THE MIGHTY HAVE FALLEN, yes Alonso at times can be a moaner , but give the guy some credit over the last few years at Ferrari-- they have not really given him a good car to fight with and now Kimi as joined them, and his Lotus last year would look like a better package than this years Ferrari-- yes I know the engines have changed, but I bet Kimi is not too happy either. TWO decent drives, and two NOT happy guys. Two decent drivers, a lot of experience, and at times they may not be everybodies favorites but they can drive. This years car , must be their worst in a long time. All these engine suppliers have had a few years to work on this, and Ferrari seem way off the target, ONLY Merc seem to have done their homework. But go back to the last the turbo era, and again Ferrari were not on the game then either. Lots to do now. WHERE IS ROSS BRAWN, PLEAS COME BACK AND HELP OUT-- WE NEED YOU, and Ferrari definitely need you

F1 » Alonso/Red Bull rumours add intrigue to summer break


Agree with Golan, the silly season, probably all the hot weather, scrambling the brain cells. However after following Ferrari since 1972, through all the good and bad, I can see Ferrari being back as they were in the 80s and 90s, is was not until Shummi arrived that it sorted out--- just like at Red Bull now, being a realist, I can see Ferrari being mid grid runners, they have stood by Massa - who was good, but he needs to admit to himself-- move on. Alonso was never one of my favorites, but give him some credit, he has tried his best with Ferrari, and they CANNOT produce a car- I very much doubt any decent driver would want to go there, and if Alonso had any sense and wants another title, I would be knocking on a lot of doors for a drive. Is this a sign of the times, Ferrari supplying Murassia engines, as all the 4 cars would be RED, HELP !!!!!! I think Ferrari are needing a total BRAIN SHAMPOO TREATMENT , and soon.

F1 » Massa: I couldn't stop the car from spinning


Totally agree with LJ s comments above. Ferrari cannot even say they are trying for the constructors title as he is scoring no points. I think it is time for him to say he is retiring. Get Paul di Resta in that car, at least he drives his hat off, but seems to have been let down by a few odd things from his team. So Ferrari tank Massa for all his help over the years and let him go, and get Di Resta, and start getting two cars to finish a GP and score some points.
