Singapore GP : Alonso & Massa Saturday quotes

Fernando Alonso: "today's result is not surprising because since the beginning of the season, on average, we always started between the sixth and the eighth place, and then we return to the field in the race and that is what we'll try to do tomorrow. Updates in this race made us earn a tenth of a second on our competitors, a result that corresponds to our expectations. Although the gap with the leader is always important, we cannot say that our engineers have given everything, because everyone has done a great job. Expectations for the future are still high, although at the same time, our rivals have not lost time and take a step further. Faced with this, we must be realistic. I think the podium may be within our reach tomorrow, if we do a perfect race and if we choose the best strategy. Here in Singapore, in five years, there always had a safety car and for this reason, here more elsewhere, luck can make a difference."

Felipe Massa: "after having fought so hard yesterday and also in the free practice 3 , today in qualifying, we have finally managed to do a good lap , by completely changing the set-up of the car.Certainly, the gap with the fastest cars is still big , but today, making a time close to the Red Bull or the Mercedes was really difficult, mainly because they have not suffered as much as we of a lack of adhesion and because we are on a circuit of high support .I am expecting a difficult race because anything can happen here and the tyres degradation is particularly high, I hope that we will have a good pace in the race and that we will be competitive. It's tomorrow's race that counts and we will do our best to improve our position in the Championship. I will give everything at the seven next races because I want to finish in the best possible way with Ferrari."
