The Ferrari team boss, Stefano Domenicali has said that he is confident that the star driver Fernando Alonso will be able to bounce back from the disappointment of having lost the title by just three points last season. The Spaniard Fernando Alonso was in contention for the title throughout the last season, but fell just three points short of the eventual winner Vettel on the final day of the season. Alonso managed to finish in the second position in the Brazilian Grand Prix and needed Sebastian Vettel to finish lower than sixth position.

However, the German managed a sixth place finish and won the F1 world championship title. Alonso recently spoke that title is not the only thing that matters because he is extremely happy with the way he competed throughout last season. Alonso was one of the best drivers through to the last season and held the lead in the championship standings for most of the season. Ferrari are expected to bounce back strongly according to the team boss, who is expected to adopt an aggressive strategy for next season. After falling behind Red Bull during the back end of the season, Ferrari recovered strongly to finish the season on a high note. Domenicali expects things to progress from that stage.

“It is not easy when you do such an incredible season to lose in that condition. But the strength of a champion is to make sure that in this break you recharge and once again be the best. If you put yourself in his shoes, he knows and he knew at that stage he would have deserved the championship. Honestly. That’s without putting any negative words on Sebastian – he won and so he deserved that,” said the Ferrari team principal. Ferrari were disappointed not to win the constructors championship.
