Friday press conference - India GP - Pt.2

I think we've talked a lot about the facilities and I think the facilities are good and they've got better but I think the really important thing was that last year you really sensed that really crazy passion in its first year and it's early days in this year's race, but I think we want to retain that and build on it because clearly India's a new and very important market for Formula One and looking ahead now, we've got to build upon the passion that we saw in its first year and make sure we don't go flat, we don't lose the interest, we've got to maintain that momentum. So the facilities are good but I think that this is such an important market for anyone, we've got to build on the passion we saw.

Q: (Luigi Perna – La Gazzetta dello Sport).
Stefano, considering the last three races, the gap of performance of Red Bull compared to your car and the others, how much chance do you have to close this gap and try to win this title?

Stefano Domenicali:
In terms of closing the gap in performance, it's difficult to say because our main competitors but also McLaren, they are always improving, so it's difficult to say where we are relative to pace/performance but in terms of percentage with regard to the possibility of winning the championship, I think that, as we said before, there are too many elements that are on the table: strategy, race mistakes, problems that we still have - I would say - less than fifty percent because they are in front of us, but the race is full open.
