F1: Will Ferrari Win in China this Weekend too?
Jean Alesi thinks his former F1 Team, the great Ferrari Team Scuderia, is now ready to challenge MercedesAMG for the world championship.
Mr. Alesi, whose only win for the Italian team was in Y 1995, said Ferrari’s 10 yr-long wait for a world championship could now be over.
He told the motorsport press, “The step into the new regulations was very unclear. There were 1000 doubts about what MercedesAMG and/or Red Bull would do.
“But after Australia, I now expect Ferrari to confirm that performance in China. The ease with which Vettel followed Hamilton in the race was astonishing, while Hamilton had no chance to follow Vettel. When a car is good from the beginning, the development is also easier.”
But, former F1 team boss Flavio Briatore thinks it is a little early to say Ferrari will definitely fight for the Y 2017 crown.
Mr. Briatore said: “We will get a clearer picture in China. The Ferrari victory was great, but Melbourne is a special circuit and I still expect big things from Red Bull and MercedesAMG. In an ideal case, we will have a 3-way fight for the championship.”
The fans would love that racing action.
Another former Ferrari driver, Italian Ivan Capelli, is cautious about Ferrari’s Melbourne showing.
“I think the victory had a lot to do with MercedesAMG, and Red Bull taking a step back with their suspension,” he said.
And former Toyota and Renault driver Jarno Trulli declared: “Ferrari’s initial position is right, but each of the top three teams has all the resources they need to develop efficiently through the season.”
Overall, the pundits are tipping the 2017 F1 title battle to be fought between Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton after Melbourne
We will soon see.
