Difficult forecast for tomorrow's race
April 9, 2011
There was the possibility of rain, at least during the last laps in the qualifying, but it remained dry. Today's session saw nice weather and very high temperatures, also stressing the tyres. It is absolutely impossible to foresee tomorrow's outcome, as there should be some heavy downpours. Apart from the weather conditions it was a very intense day, where we put all our efforts on the track, hard work especially regarding the aerodynamics. Two weeks to put things straight for our Ferrari F150° Italia after this year's first GP, held in Australia.
Despite Alonso's fifth and Massa's seventh position today was in line with our expectations. "We know that at this point we're not able to fight for the pole position with two teams actually faster than us. Meanwhile our goal was to be right behind them on the starting grid and this is was we did", Domenicali said after Q3.
So it's difficult to forecast anything for tomorrow, but it will be important to stay right behind today's leaders, staying concentrated and immediately be aggressive. In the meantime we should let Fernando and Felipe in peace, who have to be ready for any situation on Sepang's tricky track.
