Ferrari has taken a swipe at Red Bull’s perceived “whining” about tire use and pit stop strategy in the Spanish Grand Prix. Pirelli’s rate of degradation brought about a high number of complaints.
On its official website, Ferrari brought back “The Horse Whisperer” – a commentary on the current state of affairs in F1 from a Ferrari perspective, much like Red Bull has created “The Red Bulletin” publication. How they create the angle is up to them.
In the piece, Ferrari writes, “These are difficult times for people with poor memories,” and offered this nugget against their opponents: “It’s a shame that these worthy souls kept quiet two years ago when, at the very same Catalunya Circuit and on the Istanbul track, five of the six drivers who got to those two podiums made exactly the same number of pit stops as did Alonso and Massa last Sunday in the Spanish Grand Prix.”
Ferrari ended its piece by noting that it should not feel “ashamed” about its strategy.
“Today however, it seems one must almost feel ashamed for choosing a strategy that, as always for that matter, is aimed at getting the most out of the package one has available. On top of that, if this choice emerges right from the Friday, because all the simulations are unanimous in selecting it, then why on earth should one feel embarrassed when compared to those who have gone for a different choice, only to regret it during the race itself.”
