Abu Dhabi GP - A disappointing qualifying in the Abu Dhabi night

One car seventh and another ninth: definitely not a result that matches Scuderia Ferrari’s expectations in qualifying for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. After a relatively positive start to the session – Q1 was dealt with using just the Prime tyre and Q2, at least in Alonso’s case, using just one set of Options – in Q3, the F2012 was not competitive enough, not just when compared to our usual rivals, but also when up against other cars that in recent races had been inferior to us in terms of performance.
