Formula One News » F1 2013 – Ferrari sure Monaco slump was a one off Posted on 30/05/2013
Stefano Domenicali is confident Ferrari will be back on the pace at the upcoming 2013 F1 Canadian grand prix after a poor showing at the Monaco grand prix.
Fernando Alonso could only bring his Ferrari home in 7th position after going backwards during the race and Felipe Massa suffered a suspension failure causing his Ferrari to plough into a wall.
“We didn’t have the pace and we have to understand why, but we are used to reacting very quickly after a difficult weekend,”
“It’s very difficult to say [why we struggled] said Domenicali.
“I said to our guys that, as we say in Italy, were were not ‘in the stars’ at the end of the weekend in Barcelona and we are not in the dust after Monte Carlo.
“Unfortunately, there must be a reason why we have not won at this track since 2001, maybe it’s the characteristics or the situations, I don’t know.”
“From a sporting point of view, the only positive thing was that Kimi [Raikkonen] didn’t get many points, but Vettel was second,”
“But we are just six [races into the season] out of 19.
“The championship is very long and even if we are second in the constructors’ championship, Mercedes seems to be very strong and can come back.
“It will be a great challenge for everyone, a great championship, but we need to react and understand the reasons why we are not at the level that we wanted here.”
