Ferrari chief Stefano Domenicali has praised Fernando Alonso’s performance in the German Grand Prix, as the Spaniard impressively managed the race to keep both Jenson button and Sebastian Vettel at bay. The former double World Champion now heads the 2012 championship table by 34 points.
“It was like a 67-lap qualifying run!” the Team Principal said after a distinctly tense afternoon of racing at Hockenheim. “I find it hard to remember watching from the pit wall such a tight race from the start to the chequered flag.
“Fernando was perfect: not one mistake, not one hesitation, pushing to the maximum for an hour and a half. What a driver! The team were also great, managing everything to perfection. We expected to face some stiff opposition and that was the case: to keep ahead of them, we had to do a better job.”
Despite the performance, and with McLaren having improved significantly, Domenicali admits that the Ferrari F2012 is still not the quickest car on the F1 grid.
“We know we still have a lot of work to do because we are still not the fastest,” the Italian continues. “We have seen how quickly things can change this season, therefore we must keep concentrating to the maximum, especially on the reliability front.”
With Alonso leading and Felipe Massa 14th for drivers’ honours, Ferrari remains second in the Constructors’ Championship but now only 17 points ahead of McLaren.
