F1: Ferrari expects to arrive in Montreal with a better car

Before flying to Montreal, Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso spent a few days in the factory at Maranello, helping the team prepare for the race. At the same time, his teammate Kimi Raikkonen was involved in sponsor work in Scandinavia.

“After Monaco I felt a good atmosphere in the factory,” said Alonso on Ferrari.com.

“Everyone is very motivated and hungry for good results. We are realistic and well aware of where we are at the moment, but from now on, we want to be in a position to get better results and enjoy our race weekends a bit more and everyone is working in one direction to improve the car”.

Most of the work was devoted to suit the Ferrari F14 T to the circuit Gilles-Villeneuve.

“We have been improving the car on the aero side, while in the simulator, we have done a lot of work on the set-up with the aim of arriving in Canada with a better car,” revealed Alonso.

“It has only six or seven corners, but each one has something special. They have an element of danger and getting them right brings you a lot of lap time. There is definitely no room for error, as all the walls are very, very close. You can feel the city of Montreal has a lot of passion for the race and everyone gets involved in some way,” Alonso explained.
