I am impressed with the effort the team and the guys back in England are constantly putting into it and it is good to see developments. I am looking forward to travelling to Budapest."

Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali is in buoyant mood after Fernando Alonso's second place in Germany, particularly as "the weather was the worst it could have been for us". He added: "To have been in the fight for the win right to the end of the race is significant. It's not by chance that Fernando has scored more points in the last three races than any other driver and the team has done best in the last two."

"My intention now is to be back on the podium for my 200th grand prix [in Budapest]."
