LONDON, England - Ferrari has set its sights on pole position for the 2012 Valencia F1 GP on June 24.

Since struggling to get out of Q1 early this season the Italian team has invested heavily in the F2012 car and in Canada Fernando Alonso was a genuine challenger.


The Spaniard is also right in the hunt for the championship with the latest exhaust developments in Montreal having worked especially well and, according to Spanish sports newspaper Marca, the next developments will be seen in Valencia to improve the car's top speed and traction.

"The objective is to get the first pole of the year," correspondent Marco Canseco reported.

Team boss Stefano Domenicali confirmed: "We have developments for Valencia. Our main goal is to achieve pole and we are not far away.

"The important thing is to keep improving the car - we will not be happy until we are on pole."
