Ferrari able to fight up until the end for the championship – Domenicali

Ferrari team Principal Stefano Domenicali says that they are back on the track even as he admits that it is not enough title fight.

Double-time world champion Fernando Alonso proved his Ferrari’s race pace and easily finish second on the podium start from ninth on the grid. But still the Italian out-fit claims that they need more improvements.

“I think it’s important, not only for Fernando – who deserves a very quick car – but also for the team because they are working very hard to make sure that we are able to fight up until the end for the championship,” Domenicali said.

“We had a very bad July for many reasons and I am very pleased to see that we are back on track but it is not enough.

“If you want to make sure that we are able to arrive at the end we need to have another step with regards to the performance of the car and this is what I am seeking from my people. This Is what at home everyone is trying to do as best they can and this is really the target that we have.”

“For us it’s important to get back on the trace of improving the car but for sure we have seen Red Bull has improved and we need to stay there because we can beat them by improving the car better than them and/or being there if there’s an opportunity that comes because they may have a problem. Don’t forget last year…”

Also Ferrari brought some new parts for Spa, when the reporters asked they will continue the performance with this package for rest of the season. Domenicali said some teams will carry through for the next races but some others adapt new packages with circuit specific.

“Some of them will carry through for the next races but some others of course were obviously the focus of the package with this race. At least I’m pleased to see that the car was back to a normal improvement in terms of performance; that was the most important thing for us.”
