Ferrari team Principal Stefano Domenicali says that the duo confirmed yet again the team reliability. He is pleased with duo top point’s finish, mainly without any troubles. Sunday afternoon their main rival’s under-fire with technical problems [both Red Bull and McLaren’s Button] and its gives extra benefit for Italian squad in home race.
Monza benefitted expands the Fernando Alonso’s Drivers’ title lead and also Constructors’ championship opportunity. Domenicali is also confident Ferrari keeps the position and they will be able to achieve their goals within own capabilities.
“We often say it on Saturday after qualifying: the points are only given out on Sunday afternoon and today we saw that confirmed yet again. There was another confirmation, if indeed one was needed, that reliability has to be the absolute priority.” Domenicali said after the home race.
“After all the problems we had over this weekend, for us to be able to leave Monza with Fernando increasing his lead in the Drivers’ championship, bringing it back to the level it had reached after Hungary and with enough points to consider the Constructors’ championship open again, is very important for us.”
“Fernando produced a great drive, as did Felipe. Sure, the regret relating to the pole that was within our grasp is still present, because starting from the first row rather than the fifth, the Spanish driver could have definitely been in the fight for the victory. Felipe proved to everyone, not to us, because we knew already, that he is a driver who can fight for the very top spot and that at Ferrari, we work as a team, united in our efforts to reach the targets we set ourselves. He added
“The European part of the Formula 1 season has come to a close and now the final leg begins, with seven races in a little over two months. Those seven will be very tough for everyone and all of us, back in Maranello and at the race tracks, will tackle them doing our very best, paying great attention to every little detail. That’s the only way we will be able to achieve our goals, which, I repeat, are within our capabilities.”
