Ferrari need to react faster, says Alonso

SILVERSTONE England (Reuters) – Ferrari need to be faster off the track as well as on it, Fernando Alonso said on Saturday after the team reacted slowly to changing weather conditions in British Grand Prix qualifying and paid the price.

The Spaniard qualified a distant 19th, with team mate Kimi Raikkonen 20th of 22 drivers, after the Italian team made a series of wrong calls on tyre selection on a wet and gusty afternoon.

Hamilton makes wrong call, Rosberg on pole

SILVERSTONE England (Reuters) – Formula One championship leader Nico Rosberg made the right call to take pole position while Mercedes team mate Lewis Hamilton got it all wrong at the British Grand Prix on Saturday.

As Hamilton aborted his last lap, assuming he could not improve on a time that looked good for pole in wet conditions, Rosberg kept on pushing and found the final sector of the circuit had dried enough to go faster.
