MILAN, Italy - Ferrari's Formula 1 drivers have acknowledged the need to improve after a poor team showing at the Briitish GP at Silverstone.

The earlier knocking on the door of dominant Mercedes the Maranello men were clearly outpaced in the British GP, even by Williams.

STRUGGLED WITH HARD TYRES

Kimi Raikkonen was quoted by Brazil's Globo as saying: "It depends mainly on the circuit and the conditions," He was referring to high-speed tracks such as Silverstone and Ferrari's struggle on the harder tyres. I hope it's a different story in Hungary but we need to be better at any type of circuit with any tyre."

The Finn added: "We're hoping for a much better weekend next time."

Sebastian Vettel, who only leap-frogged the Williams because of rain on July 5, agreed: "It was not a very good weekend for us. I think we were surprised by the Williams' pace but it was not a good weekend for us because the gap to the top was larger than at previous events.

"I don't think we did a step back, I think we just couldn't find the right direction."
