What is going on at Ferrari? The team who have earned the reputation of being the slickest outfit in F1 looked a complete shambles in Singapore, and it wasn't the first time this season. How embarrassing must it have been for the mechanics to make that mad sprint down the pit lane to take the dangling fuel hose off Felipe Massa's car. Being cheered on by the watching McLaren crew, unable to hide their mirth, would have further dented their pride. This is not what we are used to from the Prancing Horse. In the Schumacher era it would have been unthinkable for the red car to conk out on the third from last lap, as happened to race leader Massa in Hungary. As for the fuelling fiasco, it's not the first time it's happened in the pit lane and it won't be the last, but you just don't expect it from Ferrari. Of course, there's a new team heading up Ferrari, led by team principle Stefano Domenicali, and you would forgive them for struggling to fill the boots of Ross Brawn, now at Honda, and Jean Todt, promoted out of the race team. It was telling that Todt was in the Ferrari pits in Singapore. Luckily for the team, the car continues to be fast, if fragile. Even if they may be struggling by their high standards, those same standards mean they are still in with a big shout of the drivers' championship with Massa. If will power were a factor, Ferrari would be right on top of their game. Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo is spitting teeth after Singapore. Earlier in the season he had been on hand at Maranello the day after a race to put a rocket up his underperforming team. Now his ire has been focused on the Singapore race weekend, which he has dismissed as a 'circus'. He said it made viewers feel like they were at Disneyland. Of course his view may be coloured by Massa's misfortune and Kimi Raikkonen's soft crash. Enter Bernie Ecclestone with the put down of the fortnight, 'After the weekend Ferrari had, their president should have shut up and kept his head down' he told a British newspaper. He has a point. After all, Singapore's staging of the first night time F1 grand prix has garnered almost universal praise. The track wasn't perfect, there were awkward kerbs and too many bumps for comfort, but it produced some decent racing - even overtaking - with a breathtaking backdrop that was spectator friendly. Di Montezemolo doesn't like the two new street tracks this year because he feels they don't promote proper racing and overtaking. And with the likelihood of accidents, the safety car comes into play. The Italian said the spectacle is provided by the safety car in such races and concluded 'this is humiliating for F1'. One thing that certainly needs to be addressed is the pit lane being closed for the first few laps the safety car is brought out. Running out of fuel, Robert Kubica and Nico Rosberg were both forced to come in and take a stop-go penalty later on in the race. Drivers like Massa point out that whether you lead a race or not can come down to plain old luck. It is frustrating for the teams and certainly not right, but you have to admit it added to the entertainment for the neutral observer. While Di Montezemolo and Ecclestone bicker like little children, it is refreshing to report increasing maturity in another part of the F1 paddock. Lewis Hamilton pulled ahead in the championship race by reining in his competitive spirit in Singapore. His team asked him not to risk points by trying to get past second place Nico Rosberg, despite his extra pace. Is this really the man who overtook teammate Fernando Alonso at a stupid speed in the pouring rain in Japan last year? Or who threw the world championship away in China trying unnecessarily to win the race? It may just be the moment that Hamilton showed he has what it takes to be world champion.
