Former racer of the Formula 1 Jean Alesi believes that in the next phase, which will be held in Shanghai, Ferrari will retain its shape and will once again compete for victory.
The Scuderia won the opening race in Melbourne last Sunday, interrupting his bezobidno series, which lasted from the autumn of 2015. According to the Frenchman, the team from Maranello are ready to fight for the title in the upcoming season.
“The transition to the new technical regulations was a step into the unknown, – said Blanc in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport. There was a lot of doubt in what form are Mercedes and Red Bull Racing. But I expect that in Shanghai, Ferrari will confirm the rate, which was showed at the Grand Prix of Australia.
Surprisingly, the ease with which Vettel was able to chase down Hamilton in the race, while then Lewis himself had no chance to catch up.
When you have such a good car from the beginning of the season, to complete it during the year much easier.”
Ex-head of Renault Flavio Briatore was sceptical Ferrari pre-season after seasons. Now the Italian has revised his point of view, but still prefer to be cautious in forecasts.
“A clearer picture of the balance of forces we get for the Grand Prix of China, said Briatore. – I am happy that Ferrari won, but still in Melbourne quite a specific track. I think Red Bull and Mercedes should expect more. Ideally, we see the struggle of three different teams in the championship.”
