Ferrari – Taking KERS Off The Car Has Made It Worse

It doesn’t seem to matter what Ferrari do at the moment, their chances seem to be going from bad to worse.  To say Enzo Ferrari would be turning in his grave is an understatement.

What would the master say if he saw the absolute disarray his team were in?  I can imagine heads would certainly be rolling.

Felipe Massa has told reporters after practice that the Ferrari F60 is indeed no worse than before at the loss of KERS.  Ferrari removed the device in the hope of better reliability, but it seems the Scuderia has literally no pace, and without a fancy diffuser system they are lagging towards the back.

“Here we are also running without KERS and as a result, we are losing even more performance, in addition to not having as much aerodynamic downforce as the best cars,” Massa told Autosport.

“Our fight for the championship is ever more compromised.

“We must try and push as hard as possible on the development of the car, but we know it will be very hard to catch up. The only recipe for getting out of this difficulty is to work.”
