Domenicali: 'We did a great job in Spain!'

"When one considers how tyre management and calling the pit stops today made the difference and I can say without being presumptuous, that the team of engineers didn't put a foot wrong," he added. ""We read the race very well."

It was all the more remarkable given that the team's director director Pat Fry wasn't present at Catalunya on Sunday, having been taken to hospital the previous morning with appendicitis.

"I think that is down to Pat Fry, even he wasn't with us today on the pit-wall," agreed Domenicali.

Fry had an appendectomy in the afternoon and is expected to make a full recovery, although it's still too soon to know whether he will be up to travelling again in time to make it to the next Grand Prix on the calendar in Monaco.

More important even that the outright race win is the impact that the result in Spain has had on the drivers and constructors championships

Alonso has closed to 17 points of Sebastian Vettel in the former, whereas the 40 points from the double podium success of the to drivers leapfrogs Ferrari into second spot in the latter 14 points behind Red Bull.

"These forty points taken in Barcelona are very important," agreed Dominicali. "I'm pleased we have closed the gap to all our closest rivals."
