This season must be a bitter disappointment for the Tifosi after last year’s promise. Particularly when the ‘chosen one’, Sebastian Vettel, has yet to deliver a win for Maranello coupled with Ferrari’s copious use of engine development tokens in the winter.
Many thought Maurizio Arrivabene would’ve been discretely removed by now after such a failing. But it seems that Maranello are happy enough at placing a dead horse head at the foot of his bed and leaving it at that for now.
Despite all of this, Sebastian remains bullish, but realistic at his prospects for the next round at Monaco.
“I think Monaco should be an interesting track for us” reported Auto Hebdo today.
“Last year, we were very competitive there. Now we have improved the car in the areas important for this race, so I think that should help. We are not the favourites arriving at Monaco but we will do everything and if there is a chance to win, we will seize it.”
Ferrari have suffered 3 non finishes out of 5 races thus far, with a string of podiums for both Kimi and Sebastian, the lowest finish of 5th in China. The team currently are sitting second in the constructors championship behind Mercedes.
