Ferrari is the oldest team in F1, and they have made their reputation that way. They are the only team to have won 16 Constructor championships, the highest ever in the sport. Although the last championship they could secure was back in 2008 in the hands of Felipe Massa and Kimi Räikkönen, they have still managed to make a strong lead with the most number of championships, given their history with legends like Michael Schumacher, Alain Prost, Niki Lauda, and more, they are one of the greatest in the history of cars and F1.

Although Ferrari had tough times in the past 3 years, they have finally made their return to winning races in the sport this year, but they are being heavily challenged by Red Bull. Red Bull are one of the strongest teams in F1 with an excellent crew behind them, and they have managed to win way more races than Ferrari this year, and have left the Scuderia behind in the championships. Assessing the situation of both the teams, Italian journalist Giorgio Terruzzi is disappointed with the Scuderia for not maximizing their performance. He feels that Red Bull might be the top car, but the Scuderia are certainly quicker cars on the track.
Terruzzi feels that Ferrari has a better design.
Ferrari has been able to create a successful aerodynamic design with their sidepods that has enabled them to be much faster than other cars, but the only issue that they have been facing is Red Bull’s straightline speed, which is truly amazing.
“Ferrari have now lost three GPs, two of which were due to engine problems and one due to a strategic mess. I just have to say that the Red Bull is a top car. We are talking about a successful design,” GPblog quoted Giorgio’s statement.
Red Bull have caught on the lead of both the championships; Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez are the two drivers in the lead of the championship with 175 and 129 points, and Charles Leclerc has dropped down to third after the Scuderia’s multiple engine failures at 126 points. Red Bull also lead the constructor’s championship with 304 points.
