Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo, despite the fact that his driver, Fernando Alonso, lost out to Red Bull's Mark Webber just four laps from the end of the British Grand Prix, has hailed the result as very important to his team.
"Yesterday's result is very important and comes after a wonderful pole the previous day," he told the Ferrari website. "In this recent phase of the championship, we have shown that we are competitive whatever the conditions and on all types of track.
"If I think back to the start of the year, we have made enormous progress," he continued, "but now we must continue to keep our heads down and work hard, because we still do not have the best car. We are Ferrari and our only aim has to be to have the quickest car of all on track."
The Italian was full of praise for both his drivers, Alonso and Massa having earned the Scuderia its biggest points haul since last year's British Grand Prix when the Spaniard won and his teammate finished fifth.
"Fernando drove a great race after a great qualifying, putting a Ferrari on pole for the first time in a long time (Alonso Singapore 2010) and I am also very pleased to have seen that Felipe was very quick, fighting hard and consistently throughout the weekend. It was very important for him and for us, because it is partly due to the points he scored that we have moved up to second in the constructors' classification."
"I am proud of the work done so far by the people at Ferrari," he concluded. "But I will be even more so for what I am sure we will be able to achieve in the rest of the season."
