Domenicali: “A win without ifs or buts”

Maranello, 14 May – Good traditions are always upheld and there is no exception to that rule at Maranello. That’s why, after yesterday’s flag raising, today it was time for the buffet with the men and women of the Scuderia, who all gathered together in the Logistics building to celebrate Fernando Alonso’s win and Felipe Massa’s third place in the Spanish Grand Prix.

“It’s always nice to come together at moments like this, but it’s important not just because of the result pure and simple,” said Stefano Domenicali. “We have won two of the five races so far, but we can do more. For people like us, who always aim for the maximum, it’s hard to swallow having missed some opportunities. In Barcelona we won without ifs and buts, we won fair and square.

“We are doing a good job, but we will continue to concentrate on ourselves and on the challenges that lie ahead, aware that if each one of us does our job perfectly then we can do well,” continued the Team Principal. ‘The aspect of the Barcelona weekend I was most pleased about was that we started our post-race meeting at 17.15, just as planned and at 18.30 we were still there analysing the data in detail: that’s the right approach, the right attention to detail and the right working method. That’s what I expect to see right to the end of the season. Our strength comes from all of you who are here today under this roof.”
