Ferrari needs to “take a long hard look” at itself according to team principal Marco Mattiacci who said he was angered by the team’s result in Canada. Fernando Alonso finished sixth whilst team-mate Kimi Raikkonen was a lowly tenth and both were unable to capitalise on the issues which hit cars ahead.
“The final result is definitely not satisfactory, far from it,” he said.
“We are very angry with ourselves, but we have no intention of giving up. The Canadian circuit definitely didn’t suit us, given that it highlighted the strong points of some of our competitors and, on top of that, not everything went right either, given that we started from too far back and the others improved more than we did “On the positive side of this weekend though, everyone wants to fight back, starting with our drivers, Kimi and Fernando, who are both extremely tenacious guys, competent and competitive and they know how to work as a team to point us in the direction of the areas that are a priority in our development programme.
