Ferrari looks ahead to German GP

Maranello, Italy:

Test driver Luca Badoer and Team Ferrari have been at the Monza track in Italy preparing for the German Grand Prix, which takes place at Hockenheim on Sunday. Ferrari's testing expertise has so far helped world champion Michael Schumacher to ten victories this season, the last being the British Grand Prix. Two-stop strategySuccess at Silverstone was put down to the team's two-stop strategy, which helped Schumacher gain an edge over McLaren's Kim Raikkonen. Ferrari have praised their high performance lubricant, which they claim has worked brilliantly. They've also pointed to the fact that their fuel continues to demonstrate its flexibility. This was illustrated by Michael Schumacher being able to stay out of the pits for several laps longer than any of his rivals at Silverstone, before his first stop on lap 15. This was just one of the many advantages enjoyed by Ferrari, who have dominated the Formula One season, with Schumacher winning 10 of 11 races. Ten out of Eleven "Its amazing season for Ferrari. It's unbelievable when you think we won ten race in eleven GP, it's something crazy, but we are just past the mid season. Formula One situation is changing very fast and you never know," said Ferrari's test driver Luca Badoer. Schumacher and Ferrari are well clear of the rest, with the world champion 26 points ahead of team mate Rubens Barrichello in second, whilst Ferrari have a healthy 95 point lead over Renault in the constructors' standings. "We are working really hard every day to keep the small advantage that we have over the other team and we will see at the end of the season," Badoer said.Ferarri will continue to use Shell's fuel and oil in Hockenheim as, once again, it will be well suited to the circuit's characteristics.
