June.09 – Felipe Massa said that Ferrari will keep on pushing to be in contention for 2011 honours. In advance into Canadian GP, the Brazilian lies eighth in the Drivers’ Championship and 119 points in arrears of the German.
“We will run quite low downforce to suit this circuit and to generate more speed and, with the help of some updates on the aero front, I expect we can be quite competitive,” Massa writes in his regular blog on the Ferrari website. Further complicating the work is the fact that we can expect tyre degradation to be very high so, even though we have the same tyre compounds as in Monaco, doesn’t expect to see people attempting a one-stop race this weekend.
“As far as the championships are concerned, at Ferrari we will never give up fighting. However, it is very clear that Sebastian is doing a great job, winning every race except one – and even that time he finished second! He and his team are looking very strong, but we are tackling the championship one race at a time and everyone is still working very hard to make the car competitive so that we can continue fighting all the way to the end of the season.”
