@jonsan Schumi’s 1996 Ferrari was awful AND unreliable. Alonso also had that 2009 pig of a Renault, but that hasn’t proven much. I’d still say the F2012 was awful during the first flyaways at a minimum. Lewis’ McLaren in the first half of 2009 was slower than Williams, Toyota, and Ferrari, never mind Brawn and Red Bull.
Tagging @slr too, as it was his comment cited. :)
