Monaco winner Fernando Alonso feels that Ferrari are the strong favourites for the next two races in Canada and America. Although the McLaren team totally dominated the Monaco Grand Prix, Alonso has pointed to Ferrari’s history at Indianapolis, believeing that they will continue their trend of doing well at the circuit.
“We hope it can be different this year,” Alonso began, “because we now all go there with the same tyres. But Ferrari usually win at Indianapolis and so I believe that they go there starting as the favourites – and the same for Canada.”
Ferrari have not won at Monaco since 2001, whereas they have won the United States Grand Prix for the last 5 years in a row. A one-two for Ferrari would certainly help their championship hopes as they currently lie 20 points behind McLaren in the constructor’s championship.
