Ferrari now clearly level with Mercedes, if not a baby step better
No evidence of such, just going by the results of the last race. Again, Merc has the edge in race craft. Somehow.
All the experts disagree.
Name the experts please. I presume they are unable to count points.
Brundle, Lazenby, Di Resta, Hill
What has points got to do with it, when Ferrari have made very recent upgrades that have propelled them to what is seen is slightly more HP, and a better chassis. This lot which includes lets say 400+ races, one World Drivers Championship, and countless hours spent on the sport every week, say that Ferrari are the favourites for the second half of the season. Add to this that despite the power advantage of Mercedes, Vettel and Ferrari have been there from Melbourne.
Again, don't know what the experts are talking about, but looking at the last 2 race results, no evidence of that, in fact they were 18 seconds apart.
I don't know why people get excited about predicted performance, where the only thing that really matters (to me anyway) is the final result.
