Off-Point: Ferrari's Dismal Season

This has got to be the season from hell for Michael Schumacher's Ferrari Formula One team.

Coming off the past three years, this season must be viewed as a total disaster with fans, such as myself, asking what happened.

Complacency? Arrogance? Poor partner decision? What???

Complacency: Why wasn't the new car ready at the srart of the season? Did it suddenly dawn on someone that there was a 2005 F1 season?

Arrogance: Since the cars in previous seasons were unquestionably superior to the competition, shouldn't the competition give Ferrari token resistance and then go home? They, the other F1 teams, certainly were not expected to either improve their vehicles or challenge the Mighty Ferrari !

Poor partner decision: Compounding the above is the decision of the tires. 'Nuff said.

When you have the greatest driver in the world in Michael Schumacher, you have an obligation to surround him with the best support system there is. Not the crap of 2005.
