Lets not get ahead of ourselves. The ferrari has been a title contender 2 times in 2010 and 2012. Alonsos start of the season 2010 wasnt exactly jawdropping though the teams strategy was shitty in the last race. Last season the ferraris racepace was always up there though they didnt qualify as well (bar maybe 2 first races when they were lost). It would be a different thing if they were actually in the midfield aka the F60.
I give you 2010, it was a quite ok car. Had they built on that, it would be different. Instead they went backwards, and the 2010 car being the most competitive of the bunch, is "not so great" indeed.
You must be joking about 2012. The car was pure crap before Barcelona, and better than the RB maybe once or twice even during its best streak, which was short.
