Alonso is the divers’ championship leader, 40 points margin with second place man Red Bull’s Mark Webber. But in last race Hungary Ferrari not performed entire race, Ferrari made a defensive mode in there.

“It is very difficult because at the moment we have seen that there are cars that are faster than us,” Domenicali said.

“We need to improve the level of performance and be cool on that, because last weekend [at Hockenheim] we were the quickest in all conditions and in Hungary we were not.

“We need to keep on developing because otherwise the others will improve and it will be more difficult to be in defensive mode. So the key of the season is to keep pushing and, when we have a situation like in Hungary, to gain points.”

“Fernando did a great race and we knew we were in defensive mode, so to be in front of two cars of [Jenson] Button and [Mark] Webber, who were faster than us is very important.

“We came here knowing it was a difficult grand prix for us, but going home having increased the point’s gap is very good. I think that Fernando can go on holiday and relax because he has had a fantastic first part of the season.”

Domenicali also added that Lotus’s Kimi Raikkonen able to win title and also Lotus are strong and collect more points in the second half of the season.

“I was not surprised by Kimi’s job because I have always said that he’s a very talented driver, a very good driver and he’s a world champion; you do not become world champion unless you have something special,” Domenicali said.
