I agree with Pierce that the chassis & Aerodynamics of the F14T were its strong points. I believe Ferrari is finally on top of its Aero game, as unlike in previous years, all Aerodynamic updates this year were tried in free practice and used in Quali and the race. Something that hasn't happened in years.
I believe the poor balance of the car and at times its lack of traction is due to the poor Power Unit, the poor ERS, and poor mapping software. Hopefully progress is made on all three phases in 2015.
i agree completely...lack of traction due to erratic power delivery on corner exit along with lack of power down the straight along with MGU harvesting issues would pretty much spells game over for any manufacturer.
add to that more engine grunt means you can run more downforce with a smaller top speed deficit
there is a substantial amount of the engine that can be changed this offseason contrary to popular opinion
i think i also need to add that NOTHING on the engine could be "fixed" during the 2014 season so what exactly was Ferrari expected to do with their obvious engine issues other than fiddle around with electronics?
imagine the uproar if ferrari with its offseason upgrades create a more powerful engine than mercedes....it is possible
