Ferrari's transition from one era to the next has been incredibly impressive over the last two years.

Many teams would have struggled to cope with the departure of Michael Schumacher and technical director Ross Brawn, both central to their success.

But Ferrari's cars are just as strong as through most of Schumacher's era.

Perhaps their tactical ingenuity is not quite as great, but Schumacher's genius gave them more room for manoeuvre than Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa.
