“Both championships are still up for grabs,” Ferrari’s Formula 1 team chief Jean Todt said after Schumacher won Sunday’s French GP here. “There are seven races remaining this season and, as we have always said, we will do all we can to meet our targets.”
Okay .. I take my words back that Indianapolis was a flash-in-the-pan from Ferrari. Given the French GP, Ferrari & Bridgestone has really taken a few steps ahead of Renault and undoubtly are looking strong. As for Schumacher, his chances of winning World Championships are more possible if Massa starts finishing above Alonso.
But all said, I think most of the people [including me] does downplayed Ferrari’s pace in Indianapolis & majorly miscalculated the pace of development they have put up [thus putting a very good use of $27M extra they have got]. Well, that’s what happens when even the Ferrari chief downplays his team chances himself [or was he trying to mislead others ?].
