John Sandor, Ferrari only won in Bahrain in 2010 after Vettel’s experiment with EBD went wrong, but it was Red Bull who had the best race pace too.
This time however, Ferrari was genuinely the fastest car in the race trim. Lotus was able to play the long game, but their strategy would have yielded 2nd or 3rd at best if Ferraris of Alonso and Massa were able to lap at their optimum speed instead of being held behind Vettel.
It’s all part of racing of course, but talking about pure speed of the car, Ferrari was probably the best bet for a winner if it weren’t for the traffic.
Not to question amount of time and effort to make this, but the whole thing is useless and subjective to your preferred outcome of the championship.
Still, I can’t blame you for daydreaming.
I don’t know how many times I thought about Spa and what if…
Just kind of pointless to make a whole thread about it though…
