According to veteran Italian Jounalist Leo Turrini, Ferrari are confident with their new power unit. He stated in his Quotidiano blog that, “As far as I know, Ferrari are 100 per cent sure they were able to catch up with the leaders in terms of engine power, even despite the transition to biofuel.”

But the Italian didnt have the same affirmative tone while addressing the Aerodynamic package of the car. “But some veiled doubts remain about certain innovative solutions in the field of aerodynamics. You have to be careful with expectations. It should be understood that, if at the first race of the season Ferrari are half a second behind Red Bull and Mercedes, the dream of a title race is over.”

Ferrari are set to launch their car on February 17th. The duo of Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc will once again race for the team in red, with Team Principal Mattia Binotto hoping that the new era will be a fresh start for Ferrari. Till then the tifosi can only remain hopeful.
