Ferrari have adopted a true pragmatic approach after winning the German Grand Prix, with Stefano Domenicali acknowledging that the Scuderia still does not have the fastest car in Formula 1. At Hockenheim, both McLaren and Sebastian Vettel were quicker than race winner Fernando Alonso when running in clear air.
“The fact we are leading the Drivers’ Championship with Fernando does not lull us into thinking that everything is fine and we’re cruising along with the wind in our sails - quite the contrary, in fact,” Team Principal Domenicali said on the team website.
“Red Bull has always been very strong in Budapest these past few years and McLaren showed in Germany that it was back in front-running form, after a slight dip at its home race.
"Then there is also Mercedes as well as Lotus and other teams, such as Williams and Sauber, who have shown they can - in some circumstances - also be in the fight for the podium. Clearly, the opposition is as numerous as it’s strong.”
Adding that Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo is reminding his workforce of the same facts, Domenicali concludes:
“There is still a long road ahead of us, with plenty of obstacles along the way. The first and currently the most dangerous one is to catch this sense of euphoria that comes from the outside. But I’m calm about this because I am immune to these things!”
At the halfway point of the season, Alonso holds a 34-point advantage over Mark Webber in the Drivers’ Championship and will lead into the summer break. For teams’ honours, Ferrari sits second but is 53 points in arrears of Red Bull.
