Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali believes anything is possible in this year's championship battle, despite the performance advantage of Red Bull Racing.
The Milton Keynes-based squad has moved into the lead in both championships after dominating the Hungarian Grand Prix, where it was clearly faster than all of its rivals. Red Bull is now 74 points in front of Ferrari, third, while Mark Webber has a 20-point advantage over Fernando Alonso.
Domenicali reckons however that the speed of the Red Bull does not guarantee the team will dominate the rest of the season.
"For sure if you look from the beginning they were consistently faster than anyone else," said Domenicali. "At certain grands prix, like Turkey, Spain, they were able to be faster, more than one second, and here I think was the maximum gap.
"Then we had a couple of races, like Valencia, Canada, Silverstone, where the gap was smaller, so I think that for sure this is our objective.
"In order to fight for the championship we need to do the maximum we can in terms of development, score the maximum points today and, as we saw [in Hungary], anything is possible and anything can happen to anyone."
He believes things are likely to change significantly on tracks like Spa or Monza, where downforce is not as crucial as in Budapest.
But Domenicali admitted the team is staying cautious nonetheless.
"As I said, one week ago we were there and this week we were more than one second behind so we need to be prudent, we need to understand and try to find more downforce everywhere.
"For sure the conditions of Spa and Monza at the next two grands prix will be totally different and we need to see what will be the combined effect of the different aero configuration plus the different aero configuration of the track."
The Italian also praised the performance of his drivers in Hungary, following a difficult week for the team because of the team orders controversy.
"After such a focus on us this week, it is great to see the performance of our drivers," he said. "It is very good.
"Fernando did a fantastic race he was able to keep a car that was faster for a long time of the race, and Felipe did a fantastic race, he was able to have a great performance and able to show how he is as a man, as a driver after such a crash and that he is really deserving to be part of our Ferrari family.
"For sure we have seen a Red Bull that was on another planet today, it was too strong for us and in the second and third sector they were flying, considering the gap in performance we have seen this weekend it was really the maximum result that we could have obtained."
