So there have been a few people who have been trying to cheat the poll, so if you happened to glance at the poll when Sato was in the lead then you can be rest assured the whole world hasn’t gone mad, somebody just voted for him 20 times. This happened at a few different times for a few different drivers, I have reverted to reality.
In the end Lewis just edged out Alonso. Surprisingly given current form Kimi edged out Massa, and so did Kubica! Nobody voted for Ralf or Fisi, but then well that was kind of the point.
So on to the new poll.
One of the key things suggested on this site and other preseason as a concern for Ferrari was that with all of the changes at Ferrari there was a chance that Ferrari would revert to type and be less of a precision engineering machine and be more of a poisonous nest of vipers. With the law suit against one of their own workers Nigel Stepney for alleged sabotage it certainly seems like the latter.
there has also been suggestions that Jean Todt never really wanted Kimi in the team. he was furious when Kimi went to McLaren all those years ago and told him at the time, “that’s the biggest mistake you’ll ever make in your life”. Todt felt he could convince Michael to race one more season, but Luica Montazemalo wanted the future and didn’t want Kimi locked in somewhere else. Michael wouldn’t take the drive away from Masa and and so he fell on his sword. Todt may be deriving some perverse pleasure from seeing Kimi struggle.
But it Ferrari just in a bumpy patch, is Ferrari actually fin but just a tad slow, or is Ferrari in meltdown? You tell us.
