ROME, July 13, 2011 (AFP) - Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has warned his team to keep their feet on the ground after Fernando Alonso ended an 11-race losing run for the Italian Formula One outfit at Silverstone. Before Sunday's British Grand Prix triumph Ferrari last tasted F1 success in South Korea last season, with Alonso taking the chequered flag that day.

"You were good, you showed how to react to difficulties, you didn't lose your courage, you succeeded in improving in every area," di Montezemolo told Ferrari on Wednesday.

"But now, keep your feet on the ground, as we're used to doing because we know what winning is all about."

He concluded by urging Ferrari "to take another step forward, because we want to win again this year".

The two-time former chanmpion's Silverstone win pushed him up into third in the drivers' standings, 92 points behind Red Bull's defending champion Sebastian Vettel.

Alonso echoed his team president's note of caution, insisting: "This win doesn't change anything, we have to be realistic - 92 points behind is a lot. "We are taking each race one by one and will try to win as many as possible."
