Alonso sees progress at Ferrari

Fernando Alonso could only secure P12 and P14 during practice in China, but he thinks Ferrari are making progress ad admitted that the problem of getting tyres up to temperature in Shanghai has been not as big a headache as in Australia or Malaysia.

"Things have improved here," Alonso said, "We didn't get the tyres up to temperature in Australia. In Malaysia, the hard compound wasn't especially quick on the first few laps either. For some reason or other, performance here is increased."
