SPA-FRANCORSHAMPS, Belgium - Ferrari team chief Stefano Domenicali was encouraged - but not satisfied - by Fernando Alonso's second place in the 2013 Belgian GP.
Domenicali said he was pleased by Alonso's move from ninth to second but wanted more pace for the (Ferrari's home!) 2013 Italian GP at Monza.
'IT'S NOT ENOUGH'
Domenicali said of Spa: "I think it was important not only for Fernando, who deserved a very good car, but also for the team, which is working very hard to make sure we can fight to the end in the championship. We had a very bad July for many reasons and I am very pleased we are back on track - but it is not enough.
"To make sure we arrive at the end we need another step in performance. That is what I am telling my people. For us it's important to keep improving the car.
"We see Red Bull has improved so we need to improve the car more and be there if there is an opportunity because they may have a problem."
