July.24 – Double time world champion Fernando Alonso said he was really happy with his second place in the German GP; particularly following his Ferrari team had not the effortless of this race.

Ferrari had a more complicated weekend because of the low track temperatures; Alonso fight for victory and finished less than four seconds at the back race winner Lewis Hamilton.

“I am extremely happy with today’s result,” said Alonso. “We had a weekend that probably was not the easiest one. We struggled a bit on Friday, in qualifying we were fourth, half a second from pole so no doubts that we struggled a bit more with the weekend. But even with the difficulties we are second and fighting for victory, so this is a fantastic achievement. Second in Valencia, first at Silverstone and second here.

“With three different rules, three different maps, we were constantly first and second on three different circuit and with different temperatures, so with all these conditions we saw consistency that put us in a good position to enjoy this final part of the championship.”

The Ferrari’s believes Ferrari could be even stronger in the Hungarian GP next weekend thanks to the higher temperatures and the softer tyres.

“I am looking forward to a bit more temperature on the track. The soft and super soft tyre should be an advantage for us in terms of how we take on the tyres. In a week we will have a very interesting weekend again. McLaren did a step forward, and Red Bull will be extremely strong, so it is challenging for us.”

Alonso, but, does not believe the German is feeling the pressure.

“No, I don’t think so, it was a bad race or whatever happened. I think he spun at the beginning of the race and I don’t know how he was stuck behind Felipe. These things happen.”
