Commenting after Sebastian Vettel’s fourth successive triumph in Sunday’s Indian Grand Prix, Stefano Domenicali, Ferrari team chief, stated that there was no point “yelling about Red Bull’s car” and that Ferrari had to act to their intensities to finish the 13-point gap in the drivers’ standings.
“It is understandable at the present time that Red Bull has a superior car,” said Stefano.
“By stating that they are more potent, we don’t have to alter the glide path we maintain in-house,” he added.
Two-time world victor Alonso, wishing to stop Germany’s Vettel, 25, becoming the youngest three time victor in the sport’s record, has announced that he stays “100% convinced” that he will bag the most coveted title.
When questioned regarding the hopefulness shown by Alonso, who ended up second in India, Domenicali answered: “I’m always positive. In life it doesn’t alter to be negative, it doesn’t provide you points.”
Domenicali shunned making any claims on the potentiality of the group’s upcoming upgrades for their vehicle for the final three races.
He said all that mattered was what occurred on the path
Team chief Christian Horner stated: “Sebastian has been with Red Bull since he was 12 or 13 years of age. He has achieved all his grand prix victories in Red Bull-designed cars and he is very happy being part of this team.”
