The car seems to come to the liking of Kimi who is quite smooth and fast without TC. And IMHO didn't go to the limit this last weekend. Just enough to be first.
I think Ferrari is the best car by ~0.2 tenths. It's small difference, others will be able to threat Ferrari to pole and maybe to win on some track. But if the Ferrari drivers keep their preformance stable and stay cool under the pressure from others, they should end up winning a lot this year.
McLaren are not far behind in the driver front, but their focus in one driver too much seems to hurt their chances of finishing high. I dont mean Kovalainen is not good enough to compare, but he clearly has been held from racing for wins so far.
A lot of drivers would win races in the Ferrari for sure, but who would beat Kimi to the championship in it? Not many, if any.
