Well, that's a good point.

And this one as well.
However, had the Old Man still been around these would only be poor excuses that no one would even dare to whisper. Ferrari lost this 3rd place a long time ago, not in Abu Dhabi, by pulling off silly mistakes only equaled in stupidity by the ones they did last year, taking the worst possible strategic decisions, having reliability issues and suffering somewhat "avoidable" crashes. I mean, they haven't been so far down on the WCC since 1993!!! It just didn't seem to me that the 2009 car was the slowest one of the last 16 years..
And having this new guy Kobayashi fighting for points (and getting them!) in his first 2 grand prix, and making it seem so easy (!), only makes you wonder for all that could have been...
