Where did you get the idea that they don't understand their exhaust? They specifically said the launch exhaust had more ultimate performance but needs development(driveability probably), so they switched to less sensitive exhaust position.
Where does that imply a lack of understanding?Just sounds like empirical testing and development to me. Ferrari might lack a bit of creativity in interpreting the regs, but that makes no implication that they don't know their ass from a hole in the ground.
Jimi Hendrix says:If after two huge restructuring operations, and last years reshuffle of its way of working, one week before the start of the season, Ferrari still needs to speed up their development it is in even deeper crisis than many think they are currently in.
Ferarri doesn't lack development pace. They've developed at roughly the same pace as Red Bull and Mclaren through a season for the last two years( actually I'd say a little better: By the end of 2010 they were close to the Bull and miles ahead of Macca. In 2011 they got closer to the two teams in fornt of them throughout the year.
Look I said earlier that is incredible that RB can develop two different specs and most probably both could work great, and Ferrari tried 4 different or more exhaust solutions and still are working on that??? I agree that they might lack the creativity to interpret better the reg but what RB did with two different specs is incredible. Yes they know the car very well but still that is brutal confidence. I agree with you that they need more time but my point is in order for them to be competitive they need to reduce this time of understanding the car if they want to fight RB and Macca.
