Formula 1 2013 – Alonso: Ferrari not the team to beat

Formula One News » Formula 1 2013 – Alonso: Ferrari not the team to beat

Despite winning the 2013 F1 Chinese Grand Prix, Fernando Alonso has does not think Ferrari is the team to beat heading into the F1 2013 Bahrain grand prix.

Fernando was asked by Autosport if Ferrari were “now the benchmark” he replied “I don’t think so, we still do not have the advantage or the car that people try to see now after one victory.

“In Australia we were clearly not the quickest, in Malaysia we were struggling a little bit, especially in qualifying where we were not so good, and in the race Felipe was fifth, so it is not that Vettel was dominant in the race.
“Then in China, Red Bull chose a strange strategy on Saturday and it compromised the race a little bit. So I think we need to keep improving and we need to be a little bit faster.

“There are some new pieces coming for this race, we have some new components coming for Barcelona and Monaco, so I hope over the next month or month and a half we can be at the level of the other cars.”
