Ferrari boss urges team to give all to help Alonso beat Red Bull’s Vettel
London: Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has urged his team to take inspiration from driver Fernando Alonso’s brilliant effort at the Indian Grand Prix and called on them give their all to help the Spaniard pip Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel to win the Formula One drivers’ championship.
Di Montezemolo was impressed with Alonso``s display in the Indian Grand Prix this weekend, as the Spanish driver produced a gutsy drive to finish second to Sebastian Vettel.
From fifth on the grid at the Buddh International Circuit, Alonso managed to claim second - his best result since his win in Germany in July to leave a 13-point gap between himself and Vettel.
Going into this weekend``s race in Abu Dhabi, Vettel has the chance to become the first driver to win five successive races since 2004 when Michael Schumacher achieved seven in a row en route to his seventh world title.
However, the Ferrari boss wants his team to give their best shot at the F1 championship and help Alonso on course to his third F1 title.
“Drivers and team have never been more united to give 120 per cent. We``re more united than ever, and the team is working on further improvements with the last three races in sight,” the Daily Mirror quoted Di Montezemolo, as saying.
“We``re ready to give it 120 per cent, just like Alonso. We``ll fight for the championship to the last kilometre. I``m very confident,’ he added.
“Alonso was exceptional in India. Felipe (Massa) brought home some very important points for the constructors`` championship, and the team was perfect in the strategy and reliability,” he said.
