June.12 – Dual time world champion Fernando Alonso was gone furiously dissatisfied by his withdrawal from the Canadian race. The Ferrari pilot crash with race winner Jenson Button on lap 37 following seeming to turn in on Button going into Turn 3.
After the crash Spaniard slide into the wall on the exit of the corner, and he try to comeback on race but his car stuck there.
The Ferrari driver Alonso felt that the judgment to start the race at the back the safety car was wrong, and underprivileged him of a key chance to attack polesitter Vettel.
“Everything went wrong, right from this morning when we saw it was raining,” lamented Alonso. It’s a real shame because today we really had a good race pace but we were unlucky: that’s not a feeling I have, it’s a fact.”
“We had our best qualifying of the year and we found ourselves starting behind the safety car, when I felt that for me, the intermediates were the best tyre,” said Alonso. “When we fitted them, the downpour came, along with the red flag which meant those who had not changed tyres could now do it practically for nothing.”
“Finally there was the coming together with Button, which as a final insult left my car beached on a kerb and I was unable to get going again,” he said.
Now he is staggering 92 points at the back championship leader Vettel past just seven races. But he is staying positive about Ferrari’s improvements during the weekend.
“The championship is not finished yet, but we must now hope for errors from others to have some hope,” Alonso said. “Our performance level here was good, especially because of the characteristics of the circuit, but also thanks to the updates we brought here. We must keep our heads up, have confidence in our ability and work hard.”
