Debate: Ferrari throwing the championship away?

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Felipe Massa, Kimi Raikkonen, Ferrari, Indianapolis, 2007What on earth happened to Ferrari?

At the start of the year it was if the Schumacher dream team had never gone away. Kimi Raikkonen cruised to victory at Melbourne with one hand on the wheel.

Despite a hiccup in Malaysia Felipe Massa was the man to beat in Bahrain and Spain.

But now McLaren have scored three one-twos on the trot and suddenly Ferrari are looking over their shoulders and finding BMW closer than ever. So what’s wrong?

Plenty of fans are voicing their displeasure at the drivers – particularly Raikkonen, whom many expected to blow Massa away. Michael Schumacher is sitting on the pit wall but many fans want him in the car.

Others suggest Ferrari’s new technical team have lost their way with the radical F2007. One source even suggested that a recent accident in Ferrari’s wind tunnel set the team back.

Have Ferrari fouled up – or are McLaren just doing a better job?
