June.13 – The Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali suffered team duo were victimized through Canadian GP Sunday long-race, saying it was a hard result to swallow.
Ferrari’s best starting in this season at Montreal second and third on the grid, the team left Canada with just eight World Championship points following an eventful race.
The Ferrari’s lead Fernando Alonso, falling down the classification following a badly timed pit-stop where he had to queue at the back the team-mate Felipe Massa, found himself under attack from Jenson Button at Turn 3.
The Brazilian, Massa he had been running as high as third when he was forced to pit for a new nose after losing control and hitting the wall while attempting to lap Narain Karthikeyan. With his car back looking as it should, Massa continued in the race, taking sixth place off Kamui Kobayashi on the finishing line.
“Regret is the feeling affecting all of us at the end of a chaotic Canadian Grand Prix,” Domenicali said. “We had the potential to fight for the win, but everything that could go wrong did go wrong. In the end, Felipe’s sixth place is definitely a result that is hard to swallow given how the race ended.
“Two incidents in particular – the collision between Fernando and Button and the passing move on Karthikeyan that caused Felipe to go off the track – leave a bitter taste in the mouth.
“Now we must put this Sunday behind us, while retaining the fact that our performance level was a match for the situation, just as we had seen two weeks ago in Monaco. We must do it again starting in Valencia and then improve for those races – I’m thinking above all of Silverstone – where aerodynamic efficiency will count for more and maybe the new interpretation of the regulations concerning the exhausts could change the pecking order in the field.”
