Montezemolo expects more wins

Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo says he expects that Ferrari will be a "key player" during the second half of the F1 season - when racing resumes after the summer break.

After struggling at the beginning of the year, the Maranello team has been coming on strong the last few races - Alonso finishing second in Valencia, winning in Silverstone, and finishing second and third in Germany and Hungary - the last three races run in colder conditions, which previously did not suit the Ferrari chassis.

Montezemolo said, "I can see the right spirit in the team after a very difficult start to the season. Domenicali and his crew seem very determined, concentrating fully on their tasks for the second part of the year which I am sure will feature Ferrari in the role of a key player. I expect we will pick up wins to add to the important and historically very significant victory achieved at Silverstone."
