Ferrari fans worst fears have been confirmed in the first qualifying of the season. Fernando Alonso beached his Ferrari in the gravel trap but still ended up in 12th compared to Felipe Massa in 16th.
On-board footage shows the car an absolute handful to drive. The F2012 is every bit as bad as the worst estimates from winter testing. Ferrari fans took to Twitter to express their anger. It makes funny reading if your not a Ferrari fan and if you are a fan you can relate to their frustrations. Here are some of the best,
