Jun.13 (GMM) Ferrari has set its sights on pole position in Valencia next weekend.
Since struggling to get out of Q1 early this season, the famous Italian team invested heavily in the F2012 car and in Canada last weekend Fernando Alonso was a genuine challenger for victory.
The Spaniard is also right in the hunt for the championship, with the latest exhaust developments in Montreal having worked especially well.
And according to Spanish sports newspaper Marca, the next developments will be seen in Valencia next weekend, and are especially designed to improve the car's top speed and traction.
"The objective is to get the first pole of the year," the correspondent Marco Canseco reported.
Team boss Stefano Domenicali confirmed: "We have developments for Valencia.
"Our main goal is to achieve pole position and we are not far away.
"The important thing is to keep improving the car, as we will not be happy until we are on pole."
