ferrari-could-adapt-new-f1-engine-for-2014-le-mans-62306-72013 F1 main title contender Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso now 60 points behind the championship leader Sebastian Vettel, currently the story cleared that the German already locked 2013 Formula One world championship.

Even as not anybody expecting that main championship contenders Ferrari or Mercedes will take domination in the remaining six races in rest of the season.

“Now it’s clear that 99% of our energies will be concentrated on the 2014 project,” Domenicali told Ferrari’s official website.

“Ahead of the summer break we were striving hard for a performance gain in Singapore, on a track with characteristics that are particularly unsuitable for our car.

“Instead we lost even more ground, despite the fact that the F138 has improved in certain ways, otherwise Fernando would never have managed to do what he did in the second part of the race in terms of tire management.

Next season Alonso will be partnered by Kimi Raikkonen: Alonso hopes a raft of new technical regulations which will be introduced to the sport next season will benefit Ferrari.

“We started (the season) in a good way,” the 32-year-old, who is without a grand prix win since May, told the BBC.

“We were competitive in Australia, maybe not in qualifying but in the race we were taking care of the tires very, very well, together with Lotus.

“We won in China, we won in Spain and then we seemed to lose a little bit of performance, especially when the 2012 tires came back.

“For next year, we start from zero. Really we will put all our effort and hopes into 2014, because starting from zero is our best opportunity to close the gap with all the top teams.”
