Ferrari has singled out improved qualifying pace as a ‘priority’ as it bids to make up lost ground in the championship battle. Although the new F138 has proved to have strong race pace, which helped Fernando Alonso triumph in China , the team has not been able to deliver a pole position so far this season. Ferrari’s deputy chief designer Simone Resta thinks that it needs to do much better on Saturdays, especially because it is becoming increasingly clear that starting near the front gives drivers a better opportunity to run in clear air and look after their tyres

Sergio Perez is adamant the messy end to his Sauber career is now behind him and will not impact on his debut with McLaren. The Mexican found himself on the receiving end of criticism at the tail end of 2012 when, after signing for new team McLaren, he failed to score a point for his old outfit Sauber in the final six races of the season. And although he is adamant that his disappointing run of form had nothing to do with the increased pressure that came with his step up to McLaren, he says that he did not take the situation lightly

Red Bull boss Christian Horner accepts the ‘dirty tricks’ from rivals that upset Sebastian Vettel so much are simply a consequence of his outfit being so successful. In the immediate aftermath of Vettel clinching his third straight Formula 1 drivers’ title in the Brazilian Grand Prix, the German talked about games that had been played against his outfit over the course of the campaign. “A lot of people tried to use dirty tricks, certain things that from our point of view that were beyond the limit, and we never got irritated or distracted by that,” he said.

Stefano Domenicali believes Fernando Alonso was the driver who deserved the world championship the most, after missing out to Sebastian Vettel in Brazil. Alonso finished second at Interlagos but Vettel’s recovery to sixth from a first lap spin that put him at the back of the field was enough for him to clinch the crown by three points. Domenicali reckons that the fact Alonso had come so close despite his costly first lap exits in Belgium and Japan was reason to feel huge disappointment about the outcome – but intense satisfaction at the job his driver had done.
November 25th, 2012
Fernando Alonso says even if he is unsuccessful in his bid to win the Formula 1 world championship in the Brazilian Grand Prix, he and Ferrari should still be immensely proud of having taken the title fight to the season finale.

Sergio Perez thinks there is nothing he can do to end the scepticism over whether he is the right man to replace Lewis Hamilton at McLaren until he races for the team. The Mexican has not scored a single point for Sauber since he signed for McLaren, and a spate of on-track incidents have left some questioning the wisdom of the Woking team’s choice. “Even if I won all the last races, there will always be question marks,” he said when asked by AUTOSPORT about the recent criticism.
