Fernando Alonso says Ferrari needs time to improve.
The Spaniard`s Ferrari was brutally honest and said that his team may even worsen in Sepang.
The new Ferrari F2012 has not proved equal to the direct opponents. Tests for pre-season left the idea that the Italian team was facing serious problems with the new car and even if it came to confirm the past week-end, the Australian Grand Prix.
Fernando Alonso showed up at a press conference very pessimistic, as well as brutally honest in stating that the performance of your team can be even worse in the Malaysian Grand Prix which takes place on Sunday.
Ferrari have odds of 17.00 to win in Sepang, McLaren and Red Bull is 1.72 2.60.
Recall that in Melbourne Alonso ended up getting a creditable fifth place in a car that does not even reached the third stage in qualifying, with the Spaniard expects something similar this week-end.
When asked if the characteristics of the fastest Sepang circuit would benefit the competitiveness of the Ferrari, Alonso answered with brutal honesty.
"We hope so, but I think not, to be honest. We have tested the car in different circuits: Jerez, Barcelona and then in Australia with more or less the same car with the same problems. Do not expect great miracles from Australia to Malaysia because the cars are identical, "stated first.
Alonso continued, stating that anyone in Melbourne that he expected me to finish fifth, because other drivers were more rapid, however some incidents during the race allowed this classification. In Malaysia, if all goes normally, may end in a worse place. Only a race where something unusual happens will allow Ferrari to finish in top spots, this according to Alonso.
Despite the setbacks the Spanish rider said that the team is working hard to correct and improve all problems in F2012. He is confident that it will be only a matter of time before Ferrari return to fight for victory.
