Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo said he was extremely proud of the Italian squad after a perfect start to the season in Bahrain.
Fernando Alonso scored victory on his debut with the Maranello team, the Spaniard leading teammate Felipe Massa to the first one-two for Ferrari since 2008. Di Montezemolo praised his team on its return to the front following a difficult 2009 season. The Italian reckons the result will be a boost for the team to continue pushing toward the titles.
"I am happy but, above all, really proud of my men who have done an extraordinary job," said di Montezemolo in a statement. "This victory has been pursued and wanted after months of hard work. I am extremely happy for them and for our fans.
"Ferrari is always Ferrari. I am delighted for our drivers, too. Alonso starts with a victory and Massa still so fast in a tough race after last year's terrible accident. A first and second place which encourage us to look forward and keep up the hard work."
