F1 » Raikkonen eyeing Spa revival


with horrible straight line speed and around 70 bhp less power there is no way ferrari's can cope up with spa's long straights. if they tweak the car more than it allows, it won't even go straight on straights. Thatz ferrari for now. Alonso with his capabilities in driving an understeering car, can again probably drag it somewhere near top 6. But unless the car has a solid front end, Kimi will be nowhere seen

F1 » Raikkonen sees Ferrari positives for 2015


Ferrari produced a car with good front end until first half of 2008. Then they started making changes to car which would not suit Kimi's style. Schumacher who was then an consultant to ferrari mentioned it in an interview that the changes they made did not work for Raikkonen but worked great for Massa who then started earning podiums on consistent basis. intact that was the last straw in Michael and Raikonnen's relationship i believe. Kimi believed michael supervised the changes which screwed up a winning car and Michael thought Kimi doesn't communicate if something goes wrong (Michael said that in a youtube video) After that Ferrari never produced a car with good front end. Keep in mind Alonso is more of like Button who driving style requires the car setup for bit of understeer. A car with strong front end will almost never understeer and hence won't suit his style. That is the reason why Alonso / Button can make dog of cars punch above their weight, but when the car alm

F1 » Mattiacci: Gaps are coming down


please send pat fry home and spend resources to setup your cars in two different ways. kimi wants a car with a good front while Fernando does not. their needs are different so if you want WDC , WCC then you have to do it. Else release Kimi and hire Button or release Fernando and hire Vettel so that you have drivers with similar requirements. that would ease development work

F1 » Raikkonen unhappy with Ferrari strategy


Kimi should leave ferrari right away. Maybe go to force india and give ferrari seat to hulk. Ferrari are becoming a second level team and might never win a race this year. Even if he had gone to williams he would have been up there. Fernando knows he has just one more year before he can forget getting wc again so he will also be fishing for a seat. Ever since kers and electric components came to f1, ferrari are playing catchup. Last wdc was in 2008 without kers

F1 » Alonso thought podium was possible


After Fernando joined the team, Ferrari havent won a driver or constructor's championship. He can blame them, they can blame him, but they are sinking together. Bad luck for the sport to see Mclaren and Ferrari sinking together. Maybe all good things have to come to an end ? will not the first time that a top notch racing team has vanished within the course of few years. Formula 1 needs ferrari and mclaren as much as they need formula 1.

F1 » Raikkonen: Ferrari will sort out its problems


They brought a crappy car to the party every year and to support Alonso's title chances had to spend all resources on that year's car (and still did not win a championship since 2008). The end result is that Ferrari looks like a sore loser team with no championships for 5 continuous years. The sixth year is far worse than the other five since their cars are almost on verge of getting lapped If they had focussed on the next year in advance may be they wouldnt be in this place. the first guy to go should be pat fry not domenecali. he has been there long enough and messed it up so much . I would say just fire him and put james allison incharge
