This time around, it happens to be that Ferrari—F1's oldest still-running team—is claiming itself to be so “young” that they don’t quite know what they’re doing yet.
Ferrari have competed more consistently in F1 than any other team—meaning since the early 1950s.
Mercedes has certainly made them look new with how sheerly dominant they’ve been over the Italian team this season.
“Young” probably wasn’t the correct word to use when describing the Ferrari team.
