Mugelllo's high-speed nature is not typical of many F1 venues – with its set-up and aerodynamic demands only really relevant for tracks like Silverstone and Suzuka. In particular it lacks the slow speed turns that are so typical of forthcoming races in Monaco, Canada and Valencia.

Ferrari still lacks in WT and CFD compared to other top teams, so they'll have to squeeze every single second in Mugello trying the many updates they can, hoping it works immediately. Otherwise the season is gone.
They've always been good in track-testing, so enough with rumors, we're a few hours from the truth.
Ferrari has said they will use the first two days at Mugello to compare exhaust solutions and that it will introduce 'more significant updates' on the final day.

f300v10 wrote:The F1fanatic website has an interesting article that compares the performance of this years F1 cars by looking at the percentage each car is slower than the fastest race lap at each race. That is not always a valid comparison, as some times the fastest lap is effected by a late change for tires. That said it does offer an interesting look at Ferrari's performance over the last 3 seasons:
"The raw data of Ferrari’s recent decline makes for startling reading. They were 0.48% off the pace in 2010, 0.83% off last year, and 1.5% off in the first four races of 2012."
Wouldn't a more accurate gauge be average total time in to finish the race? This year especially it is so tire dependent.
