Ferrari hoping to bounce back in Montreal

Team Principal, Stefano Domenicali, vows to leave behind the unpleasant experience in Monaco.

May 30th, 2013 (F1plus).- The goal is not to let Sebaatian Vettel and Red Bull to run away and get out of reach. This is why Stefano Domenicali has tipped Ferrari to bounce back in Canada next weekend.

Off the back of his Barcelona win, Fernando Alonso struggled in the Principality last weekend, qualifying sixth and finishing just seventh.

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

"From the sporting point of view," team boss Domenicali is quoted by Brazil's Agencia Estado, "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 -- 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.

"Unfortunately, there must be a reason for that; perhaps it's the characteristics or something else, I don't know," said Domenicali.

"But 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.

"It is a lower downforce circuit so I'm convinced that we'll be in better shape and fighting for good points," he is quoted by Spain's Diario Sport.
