Ferrari should have won in Singapore. It could have won in Malaysia. It may well have won in Japan. But it didn't.
Instead, it heads to this weekend's United States Grand Prix 145 points adrift of Mercedes and its dreams of winning a first Formula 1 constructors' championship since 2008 are in tatters. Its hopes in the drivers' championship look just as bleak. Sebastian Vettel trails Lewis Hamilton by 59 points with 100 still available.
Both titles can be wrapped up by Mercedes and Hamilton respectively at Austin. Having looked so promising, Ferrari's wait for success looks set to go on. But will it ever end?
