I think we have to stop considering the Brawn GP as a super great car. They have built their car around the double diffuser and they were the only one. At the mid season, Red Bull was already the fastest car, Mclaren was not far away, and even Raikkonen was there. And in 2010 they were nowhere.
Mercedes have not a trick, their car is just wonderful, the engine, the chassis, it's a wonderful car and they will win WDC and WCC this year easily.
Ferrari best chance is to be the second fastest in front of Red Bull, and it will be a huge achievement considering how bad the team finish last year. We have to forget the title this season, like every other team except Mercedes. Tomorrow they will win the race, they had already perhaps a gap of 70 points in the bag for the WCC, Alonso already one victory away of them in the WDC, but the worse, the gap Mercedes have over the third best is 1.5 seconds. So they have just to have a reliable car, finish all the race on the podium now.
It's over now, and only a delusional man can say or think the contrary. And even if Alonso won the WDC this year with Ferrari the best car it would change nothing for me, at this stage of the season and after that Mercedes domination, for me, you are delusional if you think Ferrari and even Red Bull have a chance.
