Stefano Domenicali says that Ferrari has to put pressure on and Red Bull, and not just rely on taking advantage of any problems for the championship leaders.

Domenicali said after seeing Vettel’s pace in FP2 Friday that the Italian team’s main rival could be hard to beat in Monza.

“From what we have seen today, for sure above all in the second session, Red Bull seems to be very strong,” said Domenicali. “I have to say, we have seen them doing a lap time immediately, so normally this is a good sign. Therefore, I am expecting, for sure, them to be very strong. I think it will be a tough weekend, for everyone, because with this kind of temperature also the car will be under pressure.

“It’s not really the same as Spa,” Michael told this writer. “At Spa you have a trade-off between sector two, which is maximum downforce, and one and three which are minimum downforce. Monza is obviously all low downforce so it is a different aerodynamic track. But we should be good there as well, I think.
