Will Ferrari finally beat Mercedes this year?
There's no doubt that Ferrari had a car that was fast enough to win the world championship last year. Several driving errors and some mismanagement from the team cost Sebastian Vettel the title. Not getting Kimi Raikkonen to play the proper team game at Hockenheim or Monza was silly. Sacking Kimi on race day morning at Monza, when he could have helped Seb that day, was just bizarre.
As Vettel fell further and further away in the points and the car updates didn't deliver, the more desperate the overtaking lunges became and, in the end, the whole challenge unravelled. Frankly, you could even make a good argument for Ferrari having a car fast enough to win the title in 2017 if you only add the points lost in Singapore, Malaysia and Japan that year.
What's going to be interesting now is to see how it restructures with the well-respected Mattia Binotto in charge. Unquestionably, as a technical leader Binotto has done a good job to drag Ferrari from the mediocrity of 2014 into a team that has been a genuine championship contender now for the past two years.
