Montezemolo: We must keep our heads down and work hard

Luca di Montezemolo: We are Ferrari and our only aim has to be to have the quickest car of all on track.

Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has urged his team to keep their heads down and keep working hard, despite taking what he lauded as a 'very important result' at the British Grand Prix.

Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa both ran well at Silverstone, and while Alonso did miss out on the win, when he was passed with four laps to go by Mark Webber, the Spaniard still finished second, a result that keeps him top in the drivers' championship.

Massa meanwhile also had an encouraging weekend – in stark contrast to most of his other runs this season - and he eventually finished fourth, helping the Maranello-based team claim its best overall result of 2012, and move up to second in the constructors'.

“Sunday's result is very important and comes after a wonderful pole the previous day,” Montezemolo told Ferrari's official website. “In this recent phase of the championship, we have shown that we are competitive whatever the conditions and on all types of track.

“If I think back to the start of the year, we have made enormous progress, but now we must continue to keep our heads down and work hard, because we still do not have the best car. We are Ferrari and our only aim has to be to have the quickest car of all on track. I am proud of the work done so far by the people at Ferrari.

“But I will be even more so for what I am sure we will be able to achieve in the rest of the season.”

Whatever they're doing down at Ferrari seems to be working. To pull yourself from the dead to Alonso leading the drivers championship. Ferrari second in constructors championship is a huge achievement. However, we have half a season left and a lot can change before the end, so watch out.
