Alonso says his driving skills have developed further at Ferrari

Published

Aug.10 – Dual time world champion Fernando Alonso says he is driving powerful than ever at Maranello-based F1 squad, and he added that his skills have developed further at Ferrari.

“A nine or a ten can go to those who lead the championship, but this has not been such a bad a season for us so far,” Alonso commented. “Sure, the beginning was very difficult: we had hoped for a better start but we did not manage it. In China we went through what was possibly the worst point, because not only were we not fighting for the win with McLaren and Red Bull, but we were also behind Mercedes and maybe Renault, who had already scored two podium finishes.

“However, after that, we reacted well. We still lack a little something in all areas, including from the drivers, to be at the level of the best. However, I feel much more part of the team than I did a year ago. In terms of driving, I don’t think I’ve ever been this strong.”

Spaniard, who has won six races through his time at Ferrari so far, also thinks about the latest comments made by Team Principal Stefano Domenicali, with the latter claiming that he settled into the squad quicker than seven-time Champion Michael Schumacher.

“I don’t know what to say, except that I immediately felt comfortable at Ferrari,” he explained. “But it would be very difficult to repeat what Michael did, because things are very different now to what they were a decade ago. Having said that, I am experiencing the best years of my career and that makes me very optimistic for the future.”
