Ferrari’s title bid has started in a very disappointing way, after it was easily beaten by Red Bull and its lead car suffered the all too familiar fate of retiring because of an engine problem.
New team boss Fred Vasseur said after the season opener in Bahrain that he needed to stick to what he had said in the build-up: that Ferrari could not win or lose the championship at the first race.
But it clearly has a big task ahead to catch and beat Red Bull, and its troubled start to the new season didn’t even include a carryover of some of the positives it could take when things went wrong last year.
Add in the immediate return of a big 2022 weakness, which was meant to be resolved, and things look even worse.
