Fernando Alonso is confident that Ferrari is ready to fight for German GP, and he insist that Ferrari able to challenge in changeable conditions. And also he admitted did not get opportunity assess its latest developments as rain hit practice at Hockenheim.
“All in all, I am reasonably pleased with how things went,” said Alonso, who was third in the morning behind the two McLarens.
“We ran in various conditions, going from the dry to a damp track and then a completely wet one and tomorrow, at least according to the weather forecast at the moment, we could have a very similar scenario to today when it comes to qualifying.
“The car behaved well in all conditions, which is always a good thing and we were also able to see how the various types of tyre worked and when was the right moment to switch from one to another.”
“We did not have enough time to evaluate them in depth,” he said. “Let’s hope we can do that tomorrow.”
Ferrari Technical chief Pat Fry echoed with Alonso’s judgment. “Unfortunately, we were only able to do a few laps on the dry tyres this morning, however, not many of these were useful, because the rain kept making an appearance,” said Fry. “From what we could see, the car seems to be more or less alright in terms of balance, both in the dry and the wet.
“Some of the updates we have here proved to be OK right from the start, while in order to evaluate the others fully, we need to analyse carefully what little data we were able to gather today. He said.
“Tomorrow, the possibility of having another wet qualifying seems quite high, while for the race, it is meant to be dry. At Silverstone, we were competitive in both conditions – let’s hope the same applies here too.”
