There was already word last year (and maybe the year before) that the aero philosophy Ferrari adopted may not pan out as well, and likely would have a bit of a performance ceiling as far as what they could do based on their high rake design and how they designed their front wing. Considering they were losing time in the corners to Mercedes, that seemed to have been proven true even then. However, because of that 'stroker' engine, they could power through and mask some of that aero deficiency. Without that extra power, the design choices really start to bite them in the rear.
They pretty much are like Mopar in the late 60's early 70s. Fast in the straights, can't turn. Engine regs hit and now can't do either.
