Ferrari are about 4 tenth behind McLaren now, in qualifying and race pace. On the same tyres, it could take a long time to get the advantage back, too long...
Ferrari traction out of slow corners sucks really.
The last hope for Ferrari is the france upgrade, but i think that will be already to late to turn things arround.

There could be one reason for that 4 tenths.
Tyre compounds which are used in this season:
Australia Soft - Medium
Malaysia Medium - Hard
Bahrain Medium - Hard
Spain Medium - Hard
Monaco Super Soft - Soft
Canada Super Soft - Soft
USA Soft - Medium
France Soft - Medium
Britain Medium - Hard
Europe Soft - Medium
Hungary Super Soft - Soft
Turkey Medium - Hard

MP4/21 is one of the cars which are "gentle" to the tires, Ferrari spend tires more than McLaren does. So to me it is obvious that those Super Soft compounds costed Ferrari a lot of points last two race's. Now, Massa won in Spain, coz there was Medium and Hard compounds. Now in USA we have Soft and Medium. So I say that Ferrari's slow speeds would be due to those two tyre compounds which was used in Monaco and Canada. Well, now they are using same two compounds which were used in Australia... Ferrari might be fastest car in Indianapolis, who knows?

And Albers Will crash dude :mrgreen:
last year indy was a turning point For Ferrari team.
Ferrari need to qualify in the front row.
The only passing at Indy will take place going into turn 1. If you are running more downforce than the car ahead of you you will not be able to pass.

If Ferrari won't win this race, I think, their championship chances are gone.

I mean, Ferrari was always good at Indianapolis, the only not-Ferrari-win was Hakkinen 2001. So Indy should be a Ferrari-track. Let's hope they win, so the championship stays close!
