Ferrari seeks immediate reaction to Istanbul

Ferrari looks to bounce back quickly from a poor performance at Istanbul
Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali insists that the Scuderia must react 'immediately' to its below-par performance in the Turkish Grand Prix.

Felipe Massa qualified in eighth place but was able to make up just a single place in the race, while team-mate Fernando Alonso followed him home having been forced onto the back foot by a poor qualifying show, where he failed to make it through to Q3 for the third time this season.

With just ten points scored from the weekend, Ferrari lost ground to both McLaren and Red Bull in the title race and Domenicali said the team needed to respond quickly to its Istanbul issues to fight back against its rivals.

“We have to react immediately and show what we can do,” he said in his Monday debrief. “The ability to develop the car has always been a strong point for Ferrari and there is no reason why that should not be the case now: the people are the same, as are our work methods.

“Yesterday at the circuit, at the end of the race, I spoke to the journalists about the need to be innovative and creative and I reprised this message with our engineers this morning. We are a strong and united group and there is a strong desire to show what we are made of.”

Ferrari hasn't been the same marque since Jean Todt left them team. Obviously there is something lacking at the Scuderia at the moment. Ferrari went out and got arguably the "best" driver in Alonso, whose supposed to be likened to a god with his car development skills, yet Ferrari is still wallowing in the muck. Was it Santander who insured Alonso's thumbs for millions? Well, I think thumbs are currently pointed down with the current state of affairs within the Ferrari team. This is an obvious example of, "Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it."
