And it's a double victory with a one-two for our team! A great result which is not only because Vettel had a problem. During the whole race the both Ferraris had the same speed as the RedBull. But in the end it was Alonso with the best car. Massa came in second but had to slow down a little bit since the half of the race because there was a little problem with the engine.
Costa: "The F10 is the result of intense and integrated work between the GES departments, which started in spring 2009. The strategic decision was to concentrate on a new single-seater's development. The double diffuser revolutionised the project's conception. The F10 is a great step ahead in terms of our competitiveness."
Marmorini: "The 2010 season is a new challenge for the engine engineers. No more refuelling during the race changed the consumption parameters, which are extremely important regarding performance."
Massa: "Im proud to be here and I hope that the car will be really competitive; I'm full of energy and I'm really happy to be here."
Alonso: "This is the first presentation with a Ferrari for me and it's very exciting; I want to thank the team for the great work, but also the sponsors and everybody else."
Montezemolo: "Phillip Morris has been with us since 1973 and we shared numerous victories with Shell. As of this year we also have a new sponsor: Santander. This is our team. Domenicali is young and he's a leader. He grew up inside our company and it's a great satisfaction to see people grow up inside our company. Felipe is stronger than he has ever been. And for Alonso this is a very important moment in his career and life. They know how to race for a team and not for themselves. I'm expecting a lot for them."
Singapore, 27 September 2009 - Unfortunately the two F60s with Kimi Raikkonen and Giancarlo Fisichella couldn't gain any points in the Singapore Grand Prix ending the race on the tenth and 13th place respectively. The race was won by Lewis Hamilton with McLaren, followed by Timo Glock with Toyota and Fernando Alonso with Renault. It wasn't an easy race for the two single-seaters from Ferrari, who had to start from the 13th and 18th positions on the grid. As usual the circuit delivered some exciting moments, such as the accident on lap 21, involving Force India's Adrian Sutil and the BMW with Nick Heidfeld, causing a Safety Car period for four laps. Almost all of the cars benefitted from this, coming in for a pit stop. During his stop Toro Rosso's Jaime Alguersuari left too early with the nozzle still stuck in his car's tank, pulling with him three mechanics, fortunately without causing any damage.
The next F1 Grand Prix will be held on the next weekend in Suzuka, Japan.
