Alonso: Ferrari needs title-winning form

Published

on

Double time world champion Fernando Alonso says that Ferrari needs title-winning form, Spaniard talks in Ferrari’s Wrooom media event at Madonna di Campiglio in Italy on Thursday.

“We are all optimistic,” said Alonso. “Everyone is giving their best, but until perhaps Malaysia or China, race two or three, we will not be able to know how good the car is. I know we are going to have many winter tests, and you may consider those as races, but until China we will not be able to know the potential of the car.”

Fernando Alonso says he is now very optimistic for 2012 season, Ferrari recruits new employees and restricting their technical department, new entrance of Pat Fry, who is now the team’s technical director, last year.

“When Pat arrived there were some changes, a restructure, some reorganisation in the team,” he explained. “The team has been working more effectively and in a more efficient way in the last couple of months, so I think the results, if they come, they should come immediately. I don’t think we need any time. Last year we had problems with the wind tunnel, some issues with correlation. This year, if we get over our wind tunnel issues, the results should come, and if we do a good job we are able to win races. If we do not do a good job we will not be able to.”

“All the people arriving are very welcome and give you some fresh ideas, and a fresh approach for different things,” he said. “When Pat arrived in Ferrari [from McLaren], he tried to change a couple of things and he was surprised in some ways about how Ferrari worked, and the difference between his experience and the Ferrari approach.

“If you combine all the best things in your experience you can maximise the potential of yourself and team, and with Pat it was something like that. With experience, you try to get the best of everything, and I think the team has improved in all areas.”
