Ferrari needs to improve the pure pace of the car – Alonso

Published

on

Current championship leader Fernando Alonso says that Ferrari need to improve the pure pace of the F2012. The Spaniard holds a three-point gain over Red Bull Racing duo Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber.

As well he insist in race Ferrari was little bit more competitive and he admits Ferrari was not fast enough in Saturday qualifying especially they are struggling in Q3.

“We need to improve the pure pace of the car,” said Alonso,

“For Sundays we normally are a little bit more competitive. We take advantage of the experience from the team and the talent from the team in terms of preparation for the race, the starts, and the strategy.

“But we know that we are not fast enough, especially on Saturday when we are all in the same conditions, with low fuel and new tyres. We are struggling to be in Q3 sometimes, and we are not anywhere close to pole position.

“With that, that we are now leading the championship is something that we cannot maintain if we are not quick enough.”

“ We are not the fastest on the track, so that is something that we need to look for and hopefully in Canada we will see another step forward from the team and we are close again to the top guys. But we will not know until after qualifying.”

Fernando says that who maintain the consistent performance and readily set the championship.

“I think as long as there are different winners in races, you need to be consistent if you want to lead the championship,” he added.

“If sooner or later we arrive now at some races, maybe in July, when there are three races in four weeks, and in those races one guy manages to win two races, then you need something more than consistency.”

“I enjoy the season so far,” he said. “It is quite unpredictable but at the same time the top teams are leading the championships. We see Red Bull, McLaren, Ferrari, Lotus, and Mercedes – so even if there are surprises and some medium teams are doing well, at the end consistency and experience is getting the points out of Sunday.

“It is an interesting championship, but in a way I am thinking that sooner or later everything will stabilise and be much more normal than what we are seeing now.”
