    They are predicting on F1 technical that come Qualy the Mercedes cars might have the DRS open over half the lap.

    Amazing footage. I wish formula 1 coverage had any of that character to it anymore. Just show in-car cameras doing complete laps for at least 3/5 of the time. None of this cut to this angle/that angle, jump to the guy in the pits while the pass you waited for 15 min. happens, etc.

    Wow. I wonder if this car is set up completely different in his favor over Rosberg. I don't ever recall him being anything like 3 sec. faster.

    Maybe, maybe he is more comfortable in this car or maybe it's just practice and conclusions should be avoided based on performance in practice.

    Last year Seb held back until Q3 and then he was 2 seconds faster. The whole paddock took a crap in their pants.
    He was already a 2 time champion by the start of the first race.

    The Ferrari looks like another dud.

    Vettel seems to be in trouble.It looks like it could be Mclaren's or Merc's year.

    And Grojean,what a comeback debut.There is still hope for Kimi.

    I hope this is a sign of things to come, Ferrari are nowhere. Mercedes AMG F1 has a Car that qualifies well but won't have the race pace to stay in the DRS zone often enough to win.

    Sweetest of all the MP-4 27 is a fully realized car like we haven't seen from McLaren since 2008.

    If either Alonso or Massa criticize the car, they will be gone (ask Alain Prost).

    If the new rulebook doesn't benefit Ferrari, it will be gone.

    There is no point in FIA's eyes to institute rules that don't directly benefit Ferrari, and there is no point in Ferrari's eyes to have drivers that don't win either because or despite the car.

    The car is a DOG, Alonso can say more than Massa. Massa will be canned first. Perez is ready for the Scuderia.

    They won't think the car is worse relatively than the 126CK Red Cadillac, and that was a complete mobile chicane in which they nonetheless scored wins. The only good thing to come out of Ferrari this season will be the inevitable sacking of Alonso once the nerves start showing (though I have sympathy for Massa, who will indeed likely leave first as you say). Next year the rules will be heavily revised to make sure Ferrari do not get caught out again.

    In fact it would not surprise me to see Ferrari insist on the elimination of DRS as long as their cars are slower.

    Fernando Alonso says Ferrari must react quickly if it is to stand a chance in the championship following a very disappointing first qualifying of the year in Melbourne.

    The Spaniard qualified in 12th position after spinning off in Q2, although he admitted he did not have the pace to do much better had he not made that mistake.

    With the Ferrari proving to be off the pace of the leading outfits already, Alonso conceded the Maranello squad cannot afford a slow recovery like last year if it wants to stay in the championship fight.

    "If we improve the car quickly we can target important things like the championship, etc. If we don't improve the car quickly then we won't be able to do it," Alonso told reporters after qualifying.

    "Last year I was 1.4 seconds off the first, and this year I'm a second off the first in Q2. So we are better than last year, so to speak.

    "What happens is that we need to improve. Last year we were 1.4 seconds behind and we won the ninth race at Silverstone. This year we can't wait until the ninth race to win a grand prix. We have to do it much earlier."

    Alonso admitted Ferrari has failed to reach the target of hitting the ground running with its new car, and says now the team must do its best to recover.

    --------------------------

    Felipe Massa reckons Ferrari's plight may be even worse than the team feared after he could only qualify 16th for Formula 1's Australian Grand Prix season-opener in Melbourne.

    The Brazilian's team-mate Fernando Alonso was a second faster, but only 12th on the grid having spun off in Q2.

    "I am very disappointed: this is not the start to the season I was expecting or hoping for," said Massa.

    "It was difficult right from the start of FP3: the balance of the car was never what I wanted and I never managed to get a clean lap. I was always lacking grip, both on the mediums and the softs and I suffered with oversteer on entry and understeer on exit.

    "I don't know why, but the car seemed to be worse than in winter testing, maybe down to the characteristics of this circuit.

    "Now we will try and do what we can in the race tomorrow. It will not be easy, because I will start from a long way back, but I will give it my all. I don't think we'll be able to do just a single stop, but will have to try and make up the ground lost today in qualifying."
