Alonso: Tomorrow will be better

By on Friday, November 2, 2012

Fernando Alonso believes that Saturday will be better for his Ferrari team.

Alonso was only sixth in practice, 0.8s down on Sebastian Vettel.

"The day just ended was a Friday like any other, during which we got through everything on our programme. The morning session was dedicated to a comparison of various aerodynamic solutions, while in the afternoon, we concentrated on the tyres", he said.

"Between the first and second sessions, the track changed a lot, which to be honest was predictable, because there aren’t many races here over the weekend: at the start, it seemed very dirty but then it improved a lot and tomorrow, it will definitely be even better".

Felipe Massa also expressed confidence ahead of qualifying.

"We got through everything on our job list, which is always a good thing, both in the first and second free practice sessions. We tested the tyres in the usual way – first on a low fuel load and then with a lot more - to evaluate them over a long run", said the Brazilian.

"From what we could see, over a long run we are reasonably competitive, but less so on a single flying lap. Sure, it would be better if we were a bit quicker, but we will see what the situation is when it really matters, which means to say tomorrow afternoon in qualifying".
