Ferrari are more than aware that McLaren are now some way ahead of the rest of the Formula 1 field. As Jenson Button won in Belgium on Sunday, the English team became the first to win consecutive Grands Prix and four in total so far in 2012.
“From a technical point of view, the outcome of the race shows that the McLaren is very strong on very different circuits like Budapest and Spa, therefore we still have a lot of work to do to get to their level,” explains Pat Fry, Ferrari Technical Director who moved to the Maranello squad from McLaren.
“Red Bull too was competitive but I think that Fernando (Alonso) could have had the better of them if he'd raced. We now look forward to the special event that is Monza, both because it is the Scuderia's home race and also because it is held on a track that is now unique on the current calendar, in terms of its characteristics.
“It's hard to say now if we will be competitive at the highest level, but clearly we will do all in our power to succeed.”
As Alonso was taken out of the Spa race at the first corner, his championship lead has been reduced to 24 points. Ferrari stays a distant fourth for constructors’ honours.
