"We were on average a second off, or nearly a second off, in Silverstone so it's a big step. I'm very, very happy. I think we are on the right track and I don't think we have a circuit we should fear, going from now."
This is how Sebastian Vettel summed up Ferrari's Belgian Grand Prix, where it surprised even itself with how strongly it carried the fight to Mercedes on a track that ordinarily shouldn't have suited it.
But Monza is a different story altogether. Ferrari's home circuit it may be, but that confers no special advantage for the team in red. There are many reasons it should genuinely fear being outgunned by Mercedes in its own backyard, despite that encouraging performance at Spa last time out.
