Merc will question for any reason to the authority to try to match that tally.

Ferrari getting those 2019 season crumbs. Even when they finally get a speed advantage, they f*cked it up like Japan's front row lock out...hilarious. Ferrari's management has been a laughing stalk last few years.

Been over a decade since Ferrari did anything in modern day F1.
Merc has won about half of the races in the Turbo-Hybrid era. An era which is going to continue with only aero regulations changing. The Scuderia was right to work on upgrading their PU first and worry about the aero later. This was the Merc formula in 2014.

Think about it for a second. Merc has been back for 10 years and have won 60% of the WDCs and WCCs with no end in sight. As long as HAM is there they have the most relentless and productive driver on the grid. They are a nearly unstoppable juggernaut dominating through 3 Formula changes since 2014 and there is no reason to believe that this won't continue.

That's the technical part. Now let's discuss management and strategic operations. Ferrari is a joke on both accounts. Their Machiavellian ways of managing personnel as well as the leadership team is criminal and creates instability that makes it impossible to foster the best efforts from their team.

Strategy...only one way to describe it. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. They have 6 pole positions in the second half of the season and little to show for it. This won't stop until they fully stabilize their management ethos and move from an environment of blame to one of free thought and transparency.

If Merc stays in for another decade, it is highly likely that they will approach the total that Fezza did over 70 years in less than 25.
