Ferrari is yet to unleash the full potential of its 2014 Formula 1 world championship challenger.

That is the view of ex F1 driver Mika Salo, who raced a few times for the fabled Italian team in 1999 and is now a pundit on Finnish television.

Many believe that, in the 2014 pecking order, Ferrari trails most of the Mercedes-powered teams, but 47-year-old Salo is not so sure.

“Ferrari has been pretty much hidden,” he told Finnish radio Nova. “When you look at the sector times for the tests, some are very good but some are ridiculously bad. They are covering up their pace and no one really knows where they are.” (GMM)
