GP Week : Issue 12
The weekend had started well for Ferrari. Raikkonen had been quickest of all in the first session, but slipped to third in the afternoon while Massa set a consistent pace in fourth for both practice periods. The duo had racked up over 400km with no mechanical issues, so the team was happy with its first day at the office. Nobody could quite believe qualifying however, as despite looking fast all weekend, the fact that the Scuderia locked out the front row was a huge achievement. The race itself was therefore something of a disappointment. Massa came home third after a race-long tussle with Kubica, but it was Kimi Raikkonen who provided the most headaches. He was handed a drive-through penalty for not having all four tyres on his car at the three minute signal and then ran off at Ste Devote, breaking his front wing. He would have to change it once again at the end of the race after getting horribly out of shape into Nouvelle Chicane and wrecking Sutil’s race. He finished ninth. Team-By-Team: Monaco SCUDERIA FERRARI MARLBORO 1 2 BMW SAUBER F1 3 4 Thursday morning got off to a poor start for Heidfled as an engine failure in first practice curtailed his running. He would finish 14th and 11th for the day, while Kubica took a pair of sixths. The duo had managed to stay away from the barriers and overall the team was content. Qualifying saw two very different tales for the drivers however, as Kubica again out-qualified his team-mate. This time the Pole was a consistent sixth, but Heidfeld struggled to heat up his tyres and wound up 13th. The race itself saw Kubica rise to the challenge the conditions presented him with a spirited drive to second position after a great battle with Massa. Heidfeld’s weekend went from bad to worse though. After making it up to fifth he was nerfed by an over-zealous Alonso at the hairpin. The resultant damage left him last and very slow. He finished 14thand declared that this was a weekend he would sooner forget. The team nevertheless sits just a point off McLaren in the championship standings. 32
