Ferrari believe they can still fight for the drivers’ and constructors’ titles with five races to go in 2010:
The Scuderia firmly believes that the points haul for first and third places in Monza has put it right back in the fight for both titles: Fernando [Alonso]’s 21 point deficit to the leader in the drivers’ classification represents less than one win, equivalent to a mere eight points if calculations were made based on last year’s system. However, with just five Grands Prix remaining, there are definitely no more second chances.
They are 60 points behind Red Bull in the constructors’ championship with a maximum of 215 to be won in the remaining races.
However both their drivers have already used all their eight engines at least once, something none of their title rivals have done.
The F10 will feature a revised floor and new front wing for the Singapore Grand Prix. The team say they’re confident in the tyre selection for this weekend too:
No problems are envisaged on the tyre front: by this stage of the championship, the teams having a good understanding of all four Bridgestone compounds, including the Super soft and Medium which will be used this weekend.
On Thursday Alonso and Felipe Massa will attend the official opening of the new Ferrari Store in Singapore.
