San Marino GP: A race not in reality
By izick on Apr 25, 2006
Last year's race gave reason to believe that Ferrari was back. We all know now that Ferrari was no where near the pace of Renault or McLaren. San Marino was such an aberation that everyone that wanted to believe Ferrari had the speed kept point to that race.
So this race Schumacher is ahead and Alonso couldn't get past him. Where was McLaren? Are we to believe they suddenly are slower than Ferrari? I think not. After some mixed results this season so far for Ferrari, are we to believe they have suddenly got the pace back? I think Ferrari just knows this track like the back of their hand and know the best tire for their car on that track. To me, Ferrari is still 3rd and maybe even behind Honda. Let's see what happens in Nurburg in the next race. I bet we will see Renault and McLaren in front.
I think if you took Ferrari out of the race, the results were typical with many of the other races results this year.
