Ferrari’s threat to Red Bull

I’m not saying I’m a genius or anything, but in ‘It's Race Week’ ahead of the Australian Grand Prix, we had a section on ‘Ferrari closing in on Red Bull’ and how the Scuderia were now in a position to put pressure on at certain tracks after making a step forward compared to this time last season.
