Fernando Alonso says his victory in the British Grand Prix is a huge boost for Ferrari after a difficult first part of the season.
The Italian squad had not won any races since the Korean Grand Prix last year, but Alonso took an emphatic victory at Silverstone to put an end to the Maranello squad's drought.
Alonso admitted winning at a circuit that did not suit Ferrari particularly well was also a bonus.
"Obviously it is a huge boost for us," said Alonso. "We were confident of being quick here at Silverstone."No doubts it was a race that had one red cross because it was not an easy grand prix for us; the characteristics of the corners, and the layout were never our strongest points.
"We knew that Silverstone, like Barcelona, was difficult for us, so winning here is a good motivation for everyone and gives us confidence approaching the next few races."
The Spanish driver insisted Ferrari will just enjoy the victory without thinking about the championship, as he is aware than his gap to Sebastian Vettel - 92 points - is huge.
"We will try to enjoy the moment, the win and work hard. We will have the same approach as we had in Malaysia and we had in Canada and here as well. It is a weekend to try to go for the victory, to try to go for the race. There are not championship thoughts at the moment because the gap is massive to Seb. We need to enjoy every weekend, and there is no time to think about anything."
