Fernando Alonso admits that Monaco first impressions are quite positive. Also he is quietly confident about his chances this weekend podium, and his team-mate Felipe Massa today doing well. Ferrari current pace shows Monaco GP better results.
“I would say the first impressions are quite positive: everything seems to respond as we would expect,” said Alonso. “
“We only made a few small modifications to the set-up, trying to improve it, but it’s obviously too early to draw any conclusions. Let’s say the weekend has got off on the right foot for us: now we must try and keep going down this path.”
“This morning, we were able to get through our planned programme without any trouble, but in the afternoon, the rain came to spoil our plans and those of the others too. We weren’t able to even fit the Supersoft and only Button was able to find the right window to make the most of the Option, which is how he set the fastest time. “
“Now, we must see what the weather will be like on Saturday morning: if it turns out to be dry then maybe we will do more laps than usual, but even if it rains we will have to do work aimed at the race.”
“In fact, it’s not as though we understood much more when on the Intermediates, given that the track was only damp in places and so it wasn’t very representative. We can’t control the weather, we can only adapt to it as it changes.”
