Canadian GP: A Poor Race for Ferrari


Scuderia Ferrari did not have the best of races today, with Fernando Alonso bringing home the points for sixth and Kimi Raikkonen finishing tenth. The surprise winner was Daniel Ricciardo for Red Bull. It was the Australian’s maiden victory, finishing ahead of series leader Nico Rosberg in the Mercedes and Sebastian Vettel in the other Red Bull.

It was not an easy afternoon for Scuderia Ferrari. Fernando dropped a place to eighth at the start, while Kimi moved up one to ninth. After that the two F14Ts ran one behind the other for a while until the first pit stops. Alonso then closed on the leading group but struggled to make any passing moves because of a lack of top speed, while Raikkonen dropped down to 15th after spinning at the hairpin.

The move into the points for the Ferrari duo came on the final lap when Massa and Perez collided and went out, promoting both men up the order by two places. The next Grand Prix is in Austria in a fortnight.
