F1 2013 – Ferrari: We could have challenged Vettel

Formula One News » F1 2013 – Ferrari: We could have challenged Vettel

Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali is sure the Canadian Grand Prix would of ended differently if Fernando Alonso had of started on the front row.

Domenicali told Autosport “I believe if Fernando had been on the first row like Sebastian then it would have been a different story,”

“The main difference was that everyone, I believe, thought that the super soft was the tyre for the race, but because the temperature was higher, then it was the other way around.

“This is something to learn from, as it is so on the edge that a couple of degrees can make a difference.”

When asked about qualifying Domenicali responded “Yes. Unfortunately it is a very easy thing to say but a very difficult thing to do.

“We have seen the performance during the race is very, very good, and here Sebastian did an incredible race – being in first place and dictating his pace with no problem.

“But when you have such a strong qualifying you can also have this situation. Of course this [improving qualifying] is a need for us because if you start behind you are not able to attack.

“So to be second in the race was really the maximum that we could have done.”
