Fernando Alonso says he is not thinking about the Formula 1 World Championship fight, despite his commanding win at the British Grand Prix.
The Spaniard scored Ferrari's first victory of the year after outperforming Red Bull's drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber at Silverstone.
Despite his win, Alonso is still 92 points behind Vettel in the standings and he is adamant he will not change his approach to the races and will instead try to take wins without thinking of the title.
"This win won't change our approach to the coming races," said Alonso on Ferrari's website. "We have to be realistic, because we are 92 points behind in the classification and that is a very big gap! We will tackle the races one at a time, trying to win as many as possible.
"This will also involve taking a few more risks and maybe it will happen that we pay a high price for that, but there is no alternative.
"We are definitely not giving up, but we must not think about the
championship: as [Ferrari president Luca] Montezemolo said yesterday in Maranello, we are keeping our feet on the ground."
The two-time champion also believes that changes to the off-throttle blown diffuser regulations had nothing to do with Ferrari's performance at Silverstone, believing instead that the team has made real progress.
"I haven't spent too much time thinking about the technical reasons behind the win in the British Grand Prix," he added.
"Each race has its own story and we know only too well how much things can change when you go from one track to another. There were definitely some major improvements on the car, which mean it feels much easier to drive now and you can feel it much more stuck to the ground than before, especially in the fast corners.
"That means it's got more aerodynamic downforce, which was the area where we trailed our main rivals the most. However, I don't think the changes to the engine mapping were a factor: we were quicker
specifically at the part of the track where you practically don't have to brake, which means it is the actual car that is going well."
