It was a satisfied Luca di Montezemolo that phoned Scuderia Ferrari Team Principal Stefano Domenicali yesterday evening to compliment the team after Fernando Alonso’s third place in the Japanese Grand Prix.
“We knew that in this race Red Bull was practically impossible to beat but we brought home the best possible result with Fernando, who remains firmly in the title battle,” Montezemolo told www.ferrari.com. “The team has worked well, with commitment and concentration. “I’m sorry for Felipe, who was certainly not lucky this weekend: I’m sure that he will be the surprise of the last three races of the season. After this bad day he will be desperately keen to react and we will do everything to give him the possibility to win.”
The Ferrari president underlined how the consistency of Fernando’s performances could be decisive. “In the last six races our driver has taken three wins, one second and one third place, scoring the most points of anyone. We must continue down this path, seeking to make the podium every time.”Source Ferrari
