Problems on a test stand with reliability, but simulator looks good?

With help of a machine, I had this article translated, and it sounds definitely intriguing. F1 cut down on testing and efforts to improve the car, all as cost down measures, and now we got this in response! One, simply put, cannot stop innovation, regardless how strange that could be.

Much speculation in the news whether Ferrari is, or isn't ready for a season test and early races. Speculations are normal with the sport, but I am not sure how to reconcile SM's verbal diarr*ea with opinions expressed in media. Could be that Scuderia is planning to work until midnight before departure for testing, but right now they are yet to pass crash test, if I am not mistaken. Of course all will be forgiven and forgotten if there are good race results.

Ferrari (2016) per Autosprint

Released details:

Completely different front suspension for the 2016 challenger
Complete rearrangement of the energy recovery system
The ’rounded nose’ concept dropped
Massively upgraded power unit (details TBA)
Toro Rosso like narrow rear-end

Elsewhere:
Chances for WDC/WCC (per internet experts) - slim to none
Advise to Vettel: be careful, you might get fired (as Prost has)

My take on the news - internet is full of most kind, and friendly people on Earth.

Was Sebi warming up today at Fiorano, or was he benchmarked against Alonso?

Actually no...
Sky purportedly claims, that Vettel was performing correlation test between work done on a simulator during previous day, and the track in 2014 car. No filming done (which I think is limited to 100 km). Test legality was run by FiA in advance.

Rivola is leaving to take over young drivers development program... I thought last year that one would be shut down, since not much is going on on the track, but simulators.

Jock Clear attended wet test, which kicked off his tenure with Ferrari as race track performance engineer for the team, after he sat out 2015 season. I am on the fence with this guy, because I do remember his defamatory rhetoric about Schumacher when he worked with JV, just as that "enemy" attitude towards continental EU, thus this begs a question, what is he now doing in Italy on continental EU? Many predicting he will have good relationship with Seb, but I want to hear from Vettel first.

Well, I am not sure about this...

FIAT in prominence..?
Marlboro might be too much to take these days.

Challenge, not much discussed at the moment is going to be one of splitting resources with 21 races on the calendar, and new regulations in 2017, should there be tight fight for the trophies. Question is one of sustained development of 2016 car, and/or when to redirect for next year. New resources will have to be hired and trained (thus F1 becomes even more expensive).
