Ferrari plans Canada comeback

‘WATCH US IN CANADA’: Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali reckons his team will bounce back at the Canada Grand Prix on June 09. Image: AFP

Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali has tipped the team to bounce back in Canada next weekend (June 7-9, 2013).

Off the back of his Barcelona win, Fernando Alonso struggled in the Principality at the 2013 Monaco Grand Prix, qualifying sixth and finishing just seventh.


It was a blow for Alonso in the Drivers' championship, who is now almost 30 points behind Sebastian Vettel.

Domenicali said: "From the sporting point of view, the only positive was Kimi Raikkonen failing to score many points, but Vettel was second. Anyway, we have only had 6 races out of 19 and the championship is very long."

Indeed, Ferrari rarely shines in Monaco, with the Maranello team failing to win a race on the glamorous streets since Michael Schumacher in 2001.

Domenicali said: "Unfortunately, there must be a reason for that; perhaps it's the characteristics or something else, I don't know. In this race we had no pace and we have to find out why, because we are used to reacting quickly after a difficult weekend."

Alonso is also looking ahead to Canada, where he expects things to return to "normal" for Ferrari. He said: "It is a lower downforce circuit so I'm convinced that we'll be in better shape and fighting for good points.”
