Nothing. They also faded very badly from a technical point-of-view last season.ferkan wrote: ↑Mon Apr 15, 2019 2:07 pmWell, they had cars fighting for WDC/WCC, with, IMO - worse driver lineup, worse strat team and slightly worse engine (2017). In 2017, Ferrari car was best on DF heavy circuits (Monaco, Hungary) and in 2018 it was better then Merc in both (well, until rain in Hungary).
That's not the benchmark. The benchmark is Mercedes, and they have people like James Allison and Geoff Willis directing their car's direction. You need the right leadership, and technically Ferrari just haven't been getting it right. With the budget Ferrari have they should be where Mercedes is at least all the time.Does not really align with "he is engine guy, no wonder car is ---" mentality because they where best cars Ferrari produced since 2007, so there is that.
"basically have 3 superfamous technical leaders in every sector" - Who? former TDs that were let go from previous gigs? Wasn't there a joke at one point that Ross was assembling a team of rejected and fired TDs? They're famous because they're at Merc now, not because they were super famous before, they were all let go at some point. The TEAM matters more than a celebrity name.
