Bad news from Mattia Binotto...as mentioned just now during Sky Sport's televised Testing. I"m watching online. Mentioned by Ted Kravitz...
The car is not a Mercedes beater now, but may be by the end of the season.
Will the car be new or different next week at the second test? No, this is the car we will take to Melbourne, with a few changes.
Mood is said to be downbeat.
What is going on here with everyone mentioning this irrelevant interview with Mattia?
Whether they're a Mercedes beater or not, but what do you expect Mattia to tell? That they are the fastest? Have you ever heard Mercedes accepting themselves being the fastest? Last year in testing they told that Ferrari were the fastest. Come on...
LOL. OK, let's wait for Q3 in Melbourne and we'll see who is right or wrong.
I've been closely following F1 since the mid '80s. The Ferrari is not going to be a Mercedes challenger. Binotto and Ferrari would have a totally different look/sound right now if that was the case, and believe me, they already know how their car stacks up against the others.
They also know how well they fixed what they wanted to fix, if they improved the parts that needed improving, etc.
