GP Week : Issue 215
Fernando Alonso’s last day in the office for Ferrari was a pretty tough one. Perhaps looking ahead to 2015 in developmental terms, the 2014 Ferrari hasn’t progressed much of late and it was a long evening for both drivers, as Fernando summarised: "Today, my time with Ferrari comes to an end, as does a very tricky season, in which, even if we were unable to do much against the technical dominance of our rivals, we fought all the way to the very end. All of us did our utmost, putting our hearts into it. “Today's race was difficult to manage but at the same time it was very emotional for me; after five years it's not easy to say farewell to a team with which I have grown so much over the past five years, both as a driver and as a person. “I thank all the Ferraristi for their support. I will miss the team, the fans and Italy. even though we are going our separate ways, I feel I have lived through a unique experience which any Formula 1 driver would have loved to have had." Team chassis director Pat Fry concentrated on the day’s events: “For us it was a complicated race from start to finish and our final result was a confirmation of our qualifying performance. Over all 55 laps, both Kimi and Fernando struggled with little reliability problems which affected their cars. “Having gained two places at the start, we had to make the first stops very early because of tyre degradation. That put us back out in traffic and unfortunately, our management of the power units and the tyres meant it was difficult to make any overtaking moves. “After such an intense last race now we turn all our attention to the work that awaits us, beginning with next week's test, aimed at getting started on next season as soon as possible."
