Ferrari 'working tirelessly' to improve
4 November 2014 – Ferrari Team Principal Marco Mattiacci says the squad is "working tirelessly" to improve its situation after collecting only eight points at the United States Grand Prix.
Fernando Alonso hung on to take sixth place at Austin, while team-mate Kimi Räikkönen finished 13th after he struggled with tyre wear and was forced to make an extra pit stop.
The result meant Ferrari slipped further behind Williams in the fight for third place in the Constructors' Championship, with the team's deficit increasing from 28 to 42 points.
"It was a shame we could not give our fans a better result in Austin, with a Ferrari capable of fighting for the top places," Mattiacci said.
"With Fernando, we were able to maintain his start position, while Kimi had some of those difficulties that we are working hard to solve as a team, to ensure he has a better car.
"On track, we continue to learn a lot, and at home we are working tirelessly to reach our goals as soon as possible."
