Italian media: 'Ferrari faces dramatic home races'

Ferrari in Belgium was a sad show. The Scuderia is at the starting point of two consecutive home races, from which not much is expected either. The headlines of the Italian newspapers that appeared on Italian doormats this week did not lie.

Ferrari heading for disappointing home period

F1 journalist Albert Fabrega collected several Italian newspapers at the beginning of the week after the dramatic Grand Prix in Belgium and collected the titles. Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc were unable to get their cars into the points. The Ferrari duo finished thirteenth and fourteenth respectively.

The fact that the two Ferrari men had to put up with Kimi Raikkonen and his Alfa Romeo (Ferrari's client) was the most distressing. The fact that the next two home races for the Italian team will be held without an audience is not a bad thing for both the team and the drivers.

Vettel last time in red at Monza

The headlines, collected in the tweet below, do not lie. So says L'Altra Copterina: "Bye Ferrari! Vettel for the last time at Monza on the horse [the Ferrari car, ed.], suffers less from absence fans".

La Gazzetta dello Sport heads with a message in the same vein. Corriere della Serra adds: "Ferrari is still hoping for the 'Ferrari Factor'. While a last newspaper reports: "The Monza and Mugello double after Spa, but the problems with the engine and aerodynamics are critical".
