Jokes aside, does anyone have any clues as to where Ferrari are getting their extra power? There's been a lot of speculation that Ferrari have found a lot more power over the winter (although some say it is down to low drag). If they have genuinely found a step increase in power, that would be very impressive indeed given that most experts seem to suggest we are pretty much at the limit on engine technology already.
Other teams (who watch the data much more closely than us) are saying it's power, not drag. They can tell the difference since power will add more acceleration the entire straight, while drag reduction will add disproportionately more at the end of the straight. They're seeing the car gain more ground earlier in the straights, which lends itself to power, not to drag reduction.
