Ferrari technical director Pat Fry feels the Formula One team has been flattered by their start to the season, which has Fernando Alonso second in the driver's championship.

After five races, some superb driving by the Spanish driver sees him level on points with Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel at the top of the standings, only trailing the German on count-back, but Fry says the team has to work to get more out of their car.

Alonso qualified and finished second in the recent Spanish Grand Prix, won by Pastor Maldonado's Williams-Renault, and Fry hopes the team can build on that success.

Fry believes that the closeness of the races, which have seen different winners from different teams, shows how well matched the teams are.

The teams now head for the demanding Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday (May 27) where Fry is hoping that Ferrari's drivers Alonso and Felipe Massa can get used to the tricky circuit.

Massa has not matched his partner's results and currently lies 17th in the championship. He was put under increased pressure recently after Ferrari President issued a statement calling for the Brazilian to produce more on the track.
