After the team dropped the ball at the final round in Abu Dhabi last season, the Italian media and indeed the Italian population are going to accept nothing less than Ferrari winning the drivers' and constructors' world championships in 2011. If not, there will be heads on the chopping block.
Well so too will be McLaren and Mercedes on the chopping block if they don't preform.
But, as we all know, F1 is not a one man band - it is about a team of three to six hundred people all working together as one unit, and that so often is where Ferrari seems to trip up.
Ferrari seems to trip up on Team work? Can someone please remind this Anderson the Schumey era from 96 to 2006, and then again 2007 and 2008. If Alonso won it last year, this Anderson would be praising Ferrari's team work.
By saying that I am not being critical of the team's efforts, but if you look at the front wing for example – the most important aerodynamic component on a current F1 car – it is more-or-less the same as the 2010 version. Perhaps this will appear in the weeks of pre-season testing...
The front wing is the same as last year? Yes it is. Just as it's been for the last ten years when Ferrari have revealed a new car.
But I believe Ferrari has a lot of development to do if it is to make its fans happy by the end of 2011.
Yip, his right. Everyone at Maranello is sitting back hoping that last year's wings will do the job!
