no conspiracy of german media against ferrari? where have you been living in the last, say, 2 decades? Merryville? sportauto, von saurma, automotorundsport, autobild etc, anyone?
they are literally obsessed over ferrari. why they should not be, anyways? Ferrari is not a german brand, isn't it? moreover, germans widely consider italians mere pizza, pasta eater, mandolin player (not far off the reality nowadays, indeed), thus they are not lusting over getting regularly whaled, at what they think to be best in the world, by an italian "pizza, pasta, giacomo" maker. I remember the derogatory words Opel worker unions released when they were being offered to be bought by FCA.
Ferrari's policy in not lending their cars to test happened **PRECISELY ** for this reason (not only germans like to play tricks with ferrari by the way). too late, too few.
