Fry urges team to keep its cool

There is still a long way to go this season and things can change quickly, says Pat Fry, Ferrari's assistant technical director and head of race engineering.

Pat Fry has warned the Scuderia there is no need to do anything drastic following Ferrari's disappointing start to F1 2011.

The Maranello-based outfit has been no match thus far for Red Bull Racing or McLaren, a bitter blow as pre-season testing looked very promising, and following another below par display in China last weekend, which left Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo calling for an immediate improvement, the pressure is on. But while Fry concedes Ferrari does have a lot of work to do, he remains convinced the squad can turn things around.

“After three races it's clear our priority is to try and improve the performance of our car,” said Fry, who is Ferrari's assistant technical director and head of race engineering. “We have a lot of work to do.

“But we must keep our cool in this situation. There is still a long way to go this season and things can change quickly.”

For the sake of the sport and us , fans we all need STRONG Ferrari! The show would get much more exciting with three teams to fight for championship instead of one. I'm very negative on Ferraris team. Last year they were promising they would catch up and now the same. The truth is the rest should be trying to catch Ferrari considering their budget and history in F1. I can already imagine emotions flying high over here when Nando starts wining races :)
