Ferrari boss stays positive

Scuderia turn attention to Montreal

Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali was in upbeat mood despite a disappointing result for the Scuderia in Monaco.

Ferrari claimed the front row of the grid in qualifying but collected just six points from Felipe Massa's third place, as world champion Kimi Raikkonen finished a lowly ninth.

"After a great qualifying it was easy for us to act like prophets foreseeing a possible lottery for the race given the weather forecast," said Domenicali.

"We cannot deny we are disappointed, with the result a combination of errors on our part and bad luck.

"We got off on the wrong foot, with an infringement of the rules in preparing Kimi's car on the grid minutes before the start resulting in a drive-through penalty.

"Then we decided to switch our strategy, going for a one-stop race on the basis that we expected the rain to return and this did not happen.

"With hindsight, it is easy to say we should have made different choices, but the reality is that at every level we did not meet our usual high standards."


However, Domenicali maintains the picture is a healthy one for the team.

"We have taken four wins and the same number of poles from six races and we are still solidly in the lead of the Constructors' classification," he added.

"Now we must look ahead and get as well prepared as possible for the Canadian Grand Prix.

"In Monaco, we showed we were capable of fighting for the lead and we want to do the same in Montreal, another track that did not suit us so well last year."
