Ex-Schumi-Boss for sure: Puts Hamilton in a Ferrari and he wins nothing more

"If Lewis [Hamilton] would be in Ferrari, he would not win driver. You could say that. To do this, you must be a recognized expert," says Norbert Haug. The earlier Mercedes sports boss believes that The current Ferrari-the results speak for themselves. And more than that, what Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel show, was not with the SF1000 simply not possible.

The bitter words, from a Ferrari point of view, after three weekends of racing: world championship between rank five with 27 points and just one podium. For this purpose, each lot of unrest in the Team, because after the engine affair 2019/2020, the announced farewell to Vettel and currently a weak Form Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto is now massively in the criticism.

In Maranello has already responded, and the first restructuring was announced. According to Haug, this is also necessary, as he explains in the 'Sky'. His verdict: "I think the System has become obsolete. The line-up, with a Ferrari, differs from a Mercedes line-up. There are flatter hierarchies, broad."

Mercedes, according to Haug, "in another League"

the Mercedes-power for the past six years "in the history of racing," said Haug. "So I'm sticking to it: Red it is very difficult."

One could at most hope to be "exceptional race", "by a Safety Car or rain. Then you have to be there, if Mercedes should take," says Haug. "But not so clearly as now the Superiority of my memory never was."

What this means in Numbers, has Haug is calculated on the example of the Hungarian Grand Prix. There had improved Mercedes is "almost a second per lap" and "Ferrari [has become] quite exactly this value more slowly," says Haug. "This then results in a hole of 1.7 [or] of 1.8 seconds. This is a different League." Also why would even have a hard time to Hamilton in the Ferrari.

Why the SF1000 is a "failed design" is

Ralf Schumacher says in 'Sky' even the current Ferrari car was a "failed design", "because the car did not work on both routes, Spielberg and Hungary. It was not only on the Straight, there is also the Balance was."

Specifically, the rain-Qualifying at Spielberg would have revealed the glaring weaknesses of the SF1000. Neither Leclerc nor Vettel would have made it, "conceal it," Schumacher said. "If a car doesn't work in the rain, is mostly with the Mechanics of what is in order. That is why I spoke of a bad design."

"Yes, Many have said, well, since Ferrari has the other Motor, this is the main reason, but that's not true. Also on the car side there are some deficits," says the six-time Grand Prix-winner. And he says, With a personnel castling in Maranello not get a grip on to.

in the Short term, Ferrari succeed no reversal of the trend

"Ultimately, you have done nothing other than the head of the GT-to the transport Department. Now directs the new Performance Center. Sounds to me as if you wanted to demonstrate to the outside that something was changing."

Ferrari would do well to reactivate the "old guard", "people like Rory Byrne, with a lot of experience, even in the days of my brother," says Schumacher. "To now take over the tasks and ensure that the development is more advanced."

in the Short term, but, as Haug and Schumacher agree, will not move at Ferrari a lot. Haug about says: "Silverstone is a Power. I can't imagine that Ferrari from this corner comes very quickly. Silverstone is a very difficult path for all of them, not Mercedes."

Ferrari before the next blow to the neck in Silverstone?

Schumacher finds even clearer words and speaks of a looming "fiasco" for Ferrari at Silverstone. He explains: "The Ferrari engine is known to be in the Moment, not as strong as he was last year. Silverstone is a very fast track. That is, you need aerodynamics in fast curves stable car."

all speak for Mercedes, and for Racing in a Point, but "incidentally, also for McLaren. The were very strong in Spielberg. The route is similar," says Schumacher. He also expected "a difficult week" for the Ferrari driver Leclerc and Vettel.

And perhaps you have to do in Maranello on a long sporting descent in focus. "It takes months", says Schumacher, to have great technical catch up. "See the Red Bull: The cars are so complex. If there the dog is buried somewhere, you have to know first, where is."

Ferrari has the engine affair twice

hurt "At Ferrari he is, however, long been buried, and the Set-up plays no major role The have the Balance that you have. And that will be a task that certainly needed throughout the Winter. One can only hope that you are stronger next year," explained the former formula 1 driver.

That Ferrari is this year, so weak that, according to Haug for several reasons. He refers to the engine affair, and says that we have "gained an advantage". Ferrari has made [2019] "apparently, something on the engine to get more power, but it was within the rules".

So again, but Ferrari and Mercedes have provoked "very," says Haug. Justification: "It was reported that Ferrari have the most powerful engine. I've worked long enough with the guys [Mercedes]. If one holds a red cloth, then the attack properly. Said Toto, Yes, even yourself."

The criticism of Ferrari is not torn from the

And where Mercedes is growing, and even better, as crunches, it is always more at Ferrari. For Haug, Leclerc and Vettel on different strategies in the Hungarian Grand Prix had delivered a "senseless fight", helping the bottom line is that anyone. His criticism of Binotto: "Because the team leader needs to talk Turkey here and say, what is this thing on the track."

"If the number one and two continue to fight for the victory, for the world title, then I leave because I like a bit more room, but when you're fighting by a few points, every point is important. Then it should cost not a tenth of a second, if two team members are on-the-go."
