When any idiot could have guessed that qualifying is the key to 2012 specially as it helps keeps the tires in good shape when you are not in traffic and overtaking being tough in certain circuits. Our friends at Maranello chose to prioritize race pace over qualifying. The results are on the wall. Whilst race pace is good, they are left getting a rubbing in qualifying. You know why?
Caz when teams like Lotus (albeit unsucessfuly) and RBR were busy introducing DDRS to optimize their qualifying and reduce their outright speed deficit, Ferrari was busy testing front wings/rear wings that didnt work!
Its pure luck they led so far, now its time for them to be humbled. And no matter how much his voice rubs salts to the wounds, you might as well get used to Vettels post race win cheering!
They cant hide behind excuses anymore. First it used to be they had a dog of a car pre-season so cut them some slack they came so far. Now it is, remember they had a dog of a car. Come on.... they had a dog of a car, caz they made one. They were RESPONSIBLE for it. They were helped by others misfortune to be in a position to lead. They did well to produce good updates at Spa and had a chance to be the class of the field. But again they were outdeveloped, and outraced. You cant go back and give an excuse they had a dog of a car. They had one of the best cars on the grid in Spa and again due to their own slack they are where they are.
When they produced a good car in Spa they didnt say corelation in wind tunnel was bad. No, they said things are fixed. They were left behind by competition, again its a wind tunnel problem. Its not a problem of wind tunnel, its just them not being bold enough/fast enough or efficient enough. Be it race strategy on the field or their designing off the field, they are conservative at best. No DDRS, no blown exhausts, no complex maps... just same old same old hoping for a better result, guess what, it AINT WORKING!!!
great post 'Techcheat'!
Its incredible how smart and clever you are, really. I just wonder how come you have all this knowlegde and understanding of to make this kind of statements:
- When any idiot could have guessed that qualifying is the key to 2012
are you one of these idiots too?
- It's pure luck they led so far...
do you feel unlucky yourself?
- Its not a problem of wind tunnel, its just them not being bold enough/fast enough or efficient enough
do you know personally some people who are more qualified in F1 then the ingenieers and designers at Ferrari, if yes, please adress Ferrari straightaway here: betterstaff@Ferrari.com
- they are conservative at best
here again... how could they even make a F1 car to be leading a WDC after 15 ! races ?
- No DDRS, no blown exhausts, no complex maps - well the Ferrari engineers and designers must be really nut, how could they have missed?
- guess what, it AINT WORKING!!!
yes, now we all feel better, you have opened our eyes and prepared us for something very bad is going to happen.
Thanks again. Of course, if you would make your post as your personal opinion, I would just over read it, but no, as you pretend have all the facts from pre-season, from the race updates and specially an insight of what is going to happen over the next five races.... made me read your post twice, and still you seem to be really frustrated!
Nevertheless, I agree that situation doesnt look extremly good now for the WDC, instead of 50,49,29 Alonso is only 4 points ahead of Vettel, and many more points ahead of the rest of the pack. Now, do you think it is a bad thing to be ahead by 4 points after 15 races? Yes or no? Thank you!
