If they really believe they had the best car that weekend (and I don't think they do) then yes, I think they're delusional.sandman1347 wrote:There are quotes from both Vettel and Raikkonen from Singapore claiming they should have had the pole position.

Many believe that their car was quicker in Singapore as well. There's no way it was ever 10-9. The most generous estimates have it 12-8 right now between the two teams.pokerman wrote:So after 14 races it was 9-5 in Ferrari's favour but after Mexico it was 10-9 to Mercedes which of course includes the Mercedes getting thrashed in Mexico, this sounds confused?Siao7 wrote:A piece to get the old debate going again:

That said i agree the racefans one seems odd, I make it 12-8 to Ferrari.
It would be a stretch to explain away the 6 tenth qualifying advantage as down to driver/team (not like were talking about a tenth or two here), but even if you granted that, the fact it was backed up by one of the most dominant race performances of the year should tell you all you need to know. It's as easy of a weekend to call as Australia or China IMO, I don't see how you could argue against it.
