It has to be said that being at Silverstone and not even seeing a single drop of rain is rather strange. Believe it or not, the Circus has found nothing but sun and hot weather over the first two days of work at the track. And the forecast is for more of the same for tomorrow’s race.
After today’s qualifying, the current feeling within the Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro team was summed up perfectly by Stefano Domenicali this afternoon. “For us, it is encouraging to see that, on a track that is definitely not best suited in terms of its characteristics to our car, all the work we have done over the past few weeks is now paying dividends.”
It’s true that Red Bull is still ahead of us. Getting your wheels ahead of the two Adrian Newey designed cars however, is pretty much impossible at the moment. That does not mean tomorrow we will start downhearted: we respect our opponents, but we are also aware that several times during the season, the F10 has proved to be more competitive in the race than in qualifying. A good start and reliability will be the crucial factors. All the essential ingredients to get a good result on the same track where, in 1951, Ferrari took its first ever Formula 1 win are therefore in place. It would be nice to honour in the best way possible that historic win secured by Jose Froilan Gonzalez.
Finally, we would remind all our fans that on Monday 12 July, it will be possible to interact with Fernando Alonso in a video-chat. For more information, go to the relevant web page
