F1 mid-season report: Teams

Motor Racing - Formula One World Championship - Hungarian Grand Prix - Race Day - Budapest, Hungary

Ferrari: 8/10

Two victories was the Ferrari target at the start of the season and two have been achieved already, but the team cannot get ahead of itself. At the majority of tracks Ferrari has been a distant second to Mercedes and even found itself slipping behind Williams in recent races prior to an impressive performance in Hungary.

The team has made a major step forward compared to 2014, but that also shows just how poor it was last year. For a team which should always start a season with title ambitions - even outside ones - Ferrari’s standards had dropped. While it is recovering well, it still has a long way to go to reach Mercedes’ heights but the arrival of Sebastian Vettel appears to have coincided with a real belief the team is on the right track.
