Ferrari is ‘sixth or seventh’ best team in 2012 says Alonso
20 April, 2012
Apr.20 (GMM) Fernando Alonso has admitted that Ferrari currently has the “sixth or seventh” best F1 car in the field.
The Spaniard took issue with a pre season analysis in the specialist press which predicted that the famous Maranello based team’s F2012 car was better only than the three struggling backmarkers and perhaps one or two other minor rivals.
“I believe it was a German newspaper. I think we could do a press conference about what was written and we would say more mistakes than wise moves,” Alonso said in Bahrain, according to AS newspaper.
He did admit, however, that the prediction Ferrari would be the “sixth or seventh” team was “about right”.
“Now we have to improve,” the 30-year-old insisted.
