Q: Can Ferrari beat Mercedes in F1 in 2016?
A: The simple answer is no. Like 2015, Ferrari will win a few races because Sebastian Vettel is the best driver, but as we told our readers throughout the off-season, Ferrari is not going to beat the Also Costa designed Mercedes for the championship.
Let's also remember that Ferrari used most of their 2016 engine tokens in the off-season and they are still 8/10ths of a second slower per lap.
Mercedes has plenty of tokens remaining and will use them to bury Ferrari if the Scuderia get close. Make no mistake, Lewis Hamilton is a great driver, but in F1 the car is 99.9% of the equation and Mercedes is simply the better car. Hamilton or Rosberg will win the 2016 title. Mark C.
