It’s true that they’ve generally had worse race pace, but also that when on pole they’ve had the opportunity to win the race - Bahrain, Canada and Austria could all have been wins with optimal execution (e.g. respectively: reliability, errors, longer first stint on mediums).
But I do think it’s clear that the Ferrari engine modes used in quali are not there in the race - so wondering how much of this new engine is aimed at that. The wording of ‘better management of combustion’ could mean a lot of things, and the article speaks to reliability which also could mean running higher modes for longer. We’ll see, I guess.
